Hulu release new trailer for horror satire “Roots”

Hulu has released a new trailer for upcoming original film, Roots, from Dear White People director Justin Simien.

Terror literally takes root in the horror satire, as a young woman (Elle Lorraine) is persuaded to get a new weave in order to advance in her career. But with great hair, comes great consequences, as she realises her weave may have a mind of it’s own.

In this horror satire set in 1989, BAD HAIR follows an ambitious young woman (Elle Lorraine) who gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career comes at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a mind of its own.

The film stars Elle Lorraine, Vanessa Williams, Lena Waithe, Laverne Cox, Jay Pharoah, Kelly Rowland, Blair Underwood, James Van Der Beek and Usher Raymond.

Bad Hair premieres October 23 exclusively on Hulu.
