Dear White People creator Justin Simien comes up with a different kind of satire in Bad Hair, a period piece set in the world of cable TV in 1989. It’s a pitch-perfect recreation of an “urban” music video network, where the pressure to fit in drives young employee Anna (Elle Lorraine) to get hair extensions. Unfortunately, those hair extensions are demonically possessed and hungry for blood (but they look great).
In between big blockbuster projects, director Sam Raimi returned to his horror roots with the delightfully nasty Drag Me to Hell. Alison Lohman plays a bank employee who finds herself cursed when she denies a strange old woman’s request for a mortgage extension. Raimi puts his protagonist through all manner of terrors, teasing her possible salvation and then cruelly but entertainingly snatching it away.
There are seemingly dozens of terrible shark-attack movies released every year, but 47 Meters Down is a reminder that these stories can still be intense and gripping.

It’s a harrowing survival thriller, capturing the visceral danger of undersea predators.
