Writer-director Mariama Diallo makes her feature directorial debut with the haunting horror film Master, starring Regina Hall (Scary Movie, Girls Trip). In the film’s new trailer legends and the horrors of prejudice turn a college campus into a terrifying place.


In the film, three women strive to find their place at a prestigious New England university whose frosty elitism may disguise something more sinister. Professor Gail Bishop (Regina Hall) has recently been promoted to “Master” of a residence hall, the first time at storied Ancaster College that a Black woman has held the post. Determined to breathe new life into a centuries-old tradition, Gail soon finds herself wrapped up in the trials and tribulations of Jasmine Moore (Zoe Renee), an energetic and optimistic Black freshman. Jasmine’s time at Ancaster hits a snag early on when she’s assigned a dorm room that is rumored to be haunted. Things get worse when Jasmine clashes in the classroom with Liv Beckman (Amber Gray), a professor in the middle of her own racially charged tenure review. As Gail tries to maintain order and fulfill the duties of a Master, the cracks begin to show in Ancaster’s once-immaculate facade. After a career spent fighting to make it into Ancaster’s inner circle, Gail is confronted with the horrifying prospect of what lies beneath, her question ultimately becoming not whether the school is haunted, but by whom.


Zoe Renee (“Black Lightning”), Talia Ryder (Westside Story), Talia Balsam (“Mad Men”), and Amber Gray (The Underground Railroad) also star.


After making its World Premiere at Sundance, Master is set to be released on March 18, 2022, on Prime Video.
