Netflix Drops Trailer for ‘The Devil All the Time,’ Hulu Streams ‘Bad Hair’ in October
Netflix just released the “The Devil All the Time” trailer; the film will debut September 16. The film, adapted from Donald Ray Pollock’s book, focuses on an orphaned young man (Tom Holland), while charting the corrupt and broken men he meets between 1945 and the 1960s. Robert Pattinson plays an immoral preacher happy to break the rules.
Hulu will stream horror flick “Bad Hair” on October 23. Or as the streamer notes: “The horror satire is set in 1989, and an ambitious young woman gets a weave in order to succeed in the image-obsessed world of music television. However, her flourishing career may come at a great cost when she realizes that her new hair may have a mind of its own.” Justin Simien (“Dear White People”) wrote and directed the movie. The cast includes Elle Lorraine, Vanessa Williams, Jay Pharoah and Kelly Rowland.
