      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Bad Hair's unwieldy ambitions are easy to respect -- even if the film's tonal jumble and uneven execution are impossible to ignore.

      Dennis L Es una pelicula que tiene una trama original, muy diferente a las tramas de siempre, es una pelicula buena en terminos generales, muy buena para ver en estas fechas de halloween. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/30/22 Full Review stephen b It started to get good towards the end. The payoff just wasn't worth the slow build up to get there. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member I absolutely loved it! An excellent 90s style horror with some cultural commentary. A little bit of comedy and a little gore to keep the story going. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Loved it, people say it's a finger wagging at black womens protective styles. It's not. It's a camp horror. I'm a black woman who has worn weaves, and who no longer does. I can laugh at it without it being a criticism of black women. It has a message, I got that message. Interpret how you will but I thought it was fun! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review carly s I like folk-tale horror, I like cheesy jump-scares and cool one-liners, I liked Bad Hair and will show it to more people on easy late nights. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member super cringe execution. premise a bit lame. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Shelli Nicole Autostraddle Whenever I watch horror my fascination is the actual gore. My favorite horror genres are Body & Revenge and in some way Bad Hair encompasses both. Apr 13, 2022 Full Review Cate Young Bitch Media In his quest to create a fable about Black women's hair, Simien overlooks the actual function it plays in Black women's lives, opting instead for a superficial finger wag about the value and importance of natural beauty. Feb 27, 2021 Full Review Angelica Jade Bastién New York Magazine/Vulture A banal, sepulchral tour through the failures of the Black male imagination supported by an industry that bleeds Black folks for inspiration but doesn't care for their very humanity either. Oct 30, 2020 Full Review Paul Lê Nightmare on Film Street Justin Simien braids a clever and funny allegory whose central themes are intelligible without being pushy. Rated: 8/10 Jul 20, 2023 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast Simien's intentions are noble, but he tries to cram too much into Bad Hair, making for an ultimately confounding end result. Rated: 2.5/5 Jun 26, 2023 Full Review Michael Cuby them. Bad Hair is a daring critique of white beauty standards that’s as frightening as it is self-awarely camp.
