[6.25/10] Bad Hair (2020)

Bad Hair (2020)

Quick Review: A set-in-the-80s B- level folk horror dealing with African witchery and Indian mythology which underneath its supernatural surface plays it as a social commentary on black pop culture and whitewashed beauty norms, "Bad Hair" is tonally shaky, with a dramatic and realistic first half, and more comically creepy second one, but thanks to its fairly original concept, Lorraine's gripping lead turn, and cool retro visuals, the film works effectively as a metaphor, if never as a scary flick.

Another reviewer friend said it was good but not great but he liked the humorous angle.

I agree with him. Yes, the second half was amusing.
