A group of hairstylists get caught up in a deadly mystery in the upcoming A24 film, Medusa Deluxe, which released its first trailer Wednesday.
Written and directed by Thomas Hardiman, Medusa Deluxe is Hardiman’s feature directorial debut and stars Anita-Joy Uwajeh, Clare Perksins, Darrell D’Silva, Debris Stevenson, Harriet Webb, Heider Ali, Kae Alexander, Kayla Meikle, Lilit Lesser, Luke Pasqualino and Nicholas Karimi. Set in England, the film follows hairstylists as they try to figure out who is a killer. According to the official description:
Talented, ambitious, and backstabbing hairstylists gather for a competition in England, only to find one of their own murdered before judging can begin. Winding through neon-lit halls and backstage dressing rooms, competitors unspool long-simmering resentments and secrets as they search for the killer among them, in this devilishly funny whodunit from debut filmmaker Thomas Hardiman.
The film is produced by BFI, The National Lottery, BBC Film, Emu and Time Based Arts.
Check out the trailer below, which features a fun vibe, intrigue and amazing hair designs by Eugene Souleiman. Medusa Deluxe comes to select theaters and VOD Aug. 11.
