Bad Hair

Insecure and balding LEO (35) has closed himself in his apartment to try hair growth liquid for fixing up his looks. The liquid causes a series of grotesque metamorphoses with his skin and hair and as Leo tries to get his bodily changes under control the evening quickly turns into chaos.

Director Biography - Oskar Lehemaa

Oskar Lehemaa was born 1988 in Pärnu, Estonia. Growing up in a dull small town, watching action flicks and making silly short films was the perfect escape from reality. Today these passions have become a career, as Oskar infuses his works with a love for genre, from comedy to gory horror. Regardless of the project or genre, there seems to be a common thread – a pinch of humour is always added. He has worked in the Estonian commercial scene for nearly ten years. 2019 saw the culmination of two long-running projects, the short body horror film "Bad Hair" and his feature debut, the crazy stop motion adventure comedy "Old Man Cartoon Movie".
