New artwork & UK release date for horror ‘The Stylist’

by Phil Wheat

Arrow have announced the premier of writer/director Jill Gevargizian assured debut feature The Stylist, a sleek and inventive psychological thriller starring Najarra Townsend (Contracted) as a brilliant but shy hairdresser with an extremely dark secret AND debuted brand-new artwork for the film! You can see it first on ARROW – the companies SVOD service – from March 1st 2021.

Featuring a truly memorable and unexpectedly moving central performance from Townsend (who won the ‘Best Actress’ award from Total Film magazine at the 2020 Arrow Video FrightFest), with support from the excellent Brea Grant (After Midnight), The Stylist is sharply observed and erm, stylishly made. An astute study of loneliness and obsession, Gevargizian takes everyday situations – grabbing a coffee, sending a text, having a haircut, and a girls night out – and imbues them with a deliciously macabre flavour. Be warned though – there’s quite a lot of red stuff flying around and it’s not hair dye!

We all dream of being someone else… but for Claire (Najarra Townsend, Contracted), 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 (Brea Grant, After Midnight; director of 12 Hour Shift), 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…

See The Stylist first, on March 1st 2021, exclusively on ARROW, the passion-driven film platform features movies the Arrow Video brand is famous for. It’s the home for weird and wild cult classics, newly-restored gems, and genre favourites. The stunning new official artwork was created by Sara Deck… check it out below:
