Come behind the scenes of a hairstyling competition where tensions are high and the ’dos are even higher!
Stylist extraordinaire Mosca has been killed and the competitors, organisers and models are all at their wits end. Was it a rival, like the easy-to-offend Cleve? Timba, whose afro he was transforming into art? Or perhaps his partner Angel (Luke Pasqualino, Skins) had something to do with it? It’s hairspray at ten paces as suspicions are raised, things heat up and… who’s minding the baby? (There’s a baby.) This unique film unspools in real time, sweeping us up in one very camp, very entertaining, very hirsute whodunnit!

“If you are a fan of Knives Out, think of Medusa Deluxe as its flamboyant second cousin, Scissors Out. It has its own colourful characters, a definite style and enough giggles to carry you through to its gory conclusion.”
