An image from Medusa Deluxe

Medusa Deluxe is a flamboyant murder mystery, unfolding backstage at an unusually cut-throat hairdressing competition. The victim? A stylist found dead a mere seven hours into sculpting their hair masterpiece. The remaining contestants attempt to uncover the killer (while, of course, continuing to construct increasingly elaborate hairstyles), gossip and suspicion spreading like wildfire as they unravel one another’s secrets.

Masterfully blending dark humour with psychological unease, this one-shot film is packed full of vibrant characters, fantastic costume design, and snappy one-liners. Bold, camp and unique, A24 have snatched up writer-director Hardiman’s audacious debut for good reason!
