From filmmaker Jill Gevargizian comes The Stylist on stunning Blu-ray out now( @JillSixx )

Writer/director Jill Gevargizian assured debut feature  THE STYLIST, a sleek and inventive psychological thriller starring the fabulous Najarra Townsend (Contracted) as a brilliant but shy hairdresser with an extremely dark secret is out now on a lovely special edition blu ray from Arrow.

A hit on the festival circuit in 2020 (including Sitges and Arrow Video FrightFest), Screen Anarchy describes the film as “a stellar debut from and director Gevargizian”. Developed from her popular 2016 short, Gevargizian’s film, along with the likes of Prevenge, The Columnist andPromising Young Woman, herald a new era of startlingly original and socially relevant thrillers with women front and centre.

Featuring a truly memorable and unexpectedly moving central performance from Townsend (who won the Best Actress award from Total Film magazine at this year’s 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!
