90 Sec Review: The Stylist 2021

“We all dream of being someone else… but for Claire (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 (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…”

The Players

  • Director:  Jill Gevargizian
  • Writer:  Jill Gevargizian, Eric Havens
  • Cast:  Brea Grant, Najarra Townsend, Laura Kirk, and Sarah McGuire

The Good (non spoiler)

Being a fan of independent filmmaker getting a chance to flesh out their short into a feature length film. Najarra give a great performance as Claire. I would to see more of this character in perhaps in a prequel of sorts and we can see how Clarie came to be. Brea Grant also gave a solid performance and I’m looking for to see more of her work!

The Bad

It would seem as maybe the film didn’t transfer as well from a short to a feature. Unfortunately it feels unfinished in a way of just wanted more story. Which admittedly Ive not seen the short and therefore unaware if there is back story given.

Final Thoughts

The Stylist comes to Arrow Video March 1st and it’s worth a stream for sure.
