Balding Leo uses a hair growth serum, which starts causing horrible transformations in his body.
BAD HAIR is an intense body transformation horror short film, entirely without dialogue, set in one apartment, happening during one evening, slowly destroying one character. The film talks about male body image through our balding main character, but does so with gross-out horror and pitch-black humour. Style wise we want to stay away from campiness – the goal is to create a suspenseful horror ride with the best possible visuals and sound!
What Oskar Lehemaa the writer/director of BAD HAIR had to say:
For the last ten years I’ve worked mainly in commercials and TV. But I’ve always found ways to create my own weird projects with friends. BAD HAIR is the most ambitious such project to date: a body transformation horror short with no dialogues, one character, one location and gradually escalating stakes.
I love horror as much as I adore simple stories that gradually grow in complexity and absurdity. So BAD HAIR starts from a fairly trivial place – a balding guy trying out a new product – and grows into an intense and gross horror romp over the course of ten minutes.
Insecure and balding Leo has closed himself in his apartment. A mysterious hair growth liquid arrives at his doorstep and Leo uses it to fix up his looks. The liquid causes a series of grotesque metamorphoses and Leo tries desperately to get bodily changes under control as the events of the evening quickly turn into chaos.
