Escalating Goosebumps… Regina Hall in Master Photography: Emily V Aragones/Amazon

Master (Mariama Diallo, 2022) Amazon Prime Video
Halfway between Get Out and the Netflix series The Chair, Mariama Diallo’s ambitious film uses a ghost story model to interrogate the racial realities of academia for African American female students and teachers. Regina Hall plays Gail, the first black housewife at a New England college, while Zoe Renee is Jasmine, a new student placed in a room possibly haunted by a girl who has committed suicide.
