Do you love doing your hair? and do you love psychological horror movies? Well, The Stylist might be the film for you as it combines the art of styling hair with murderous intent. It’s not the most obvious combination in the world. But The Stylist, directed by Jill Gebargizian proves that even hairdressers can harbor dark and twisted secrets.
Featuring a truly memorable and unexpectedly moving central performance from Najarra Townsend, with support from the excellent Brea Grant, The Stylist is sharply observed and stylishly made (get it?). An astute study of loneliness and obsession, Gevargizian takes everyday situations – grabbing a coffee, sending a text, having a haircut, and a girls night out – and imbues them with a deliciously macabre flavour. Be warned though – there’s quite a lot of red stuff flying around and it’s not hair dye.
Here is the official synopsis for Arrow’s upcoming horror:
We all dream of being someone else… but for Claire (Najarra Townsend), that dream goes from an obsession to a living nightmare. Hairstylist by day. Serial killer and collector of scalps by night. Claire’s lonely existence is thrown into turmoil when her regular client, Olivia (Brea Grant), asks her to style her hair for her wedding day. Increasingly fixated on Olivia’s seemingly flawless life, Claire vows to lock up her scalp collection and change her ways for good . Only to discover that repressing your deadly desires is easier said than done…
You can see it first on ARROW from March 1st 2021.
