Director Justin Simien, who first broke out at Sundance with 2014’s “Dear White People,” dropped by TheWrap studio at Sundance to debate his campy horror movie “Bad Hair.”
“So ‘Bad Hair’ is a horror satire camp mashup situation about a killer weave and a girl who gets one in 1989 and the costs and the benefits that happen when such a thing transpires,” mentioned Simien. “The idea really came from a conversation about a sub-genre of horror in Korean and Japanese horror films about hair specifically and I felt like there was an American story there to be told that hadn’t been told and specifically one that kind of interrogates the system that kind of forces black women in particular, but all of black culture, to sort of produce value that they themselves can actually capitalize on.”
“I wanted to do this genre because it just it’s a lot of fun. I love ‘Body Snatchers’ and ‘Body Double” and ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ and ‘Wicker,’ I might go on and on. It’s such an ingenious and enjoyable journal the place you may actually play as a filmmaker and so I bought to sort of pour a bunch of obsessions into this,” added Simien.
The movie, written and directed by Simien, premiered within the Midnight part of the Sundance Film Festival final Thursday. The forged consists of Elle Lorraine, Vanessa Williams, Jay Pharaoh, Lena Waithe, Blair Underwood and Laverne Cox.
“Bad Hair,” set in 1989, follows a younger lady who will get a weave to be able to succeed within the image-obsessed world of music tv. However, the weave begins to tackle a thoughts of its personal.
Hulu is nearing a deal for worldwide distribution rights for Justin Simien’s “Bad Hair,” a person with information of the state of affairs instructed TheWrap.
