Don't believe that this is totally a real thing?

The film concerns Michael, a regular schoolkid with an evil art teacher. One day, Michael meets some ghosts, which causes all of his hair to fall out. Luckily, these ghosts just happen to know of a magical hair growth solution. What are the odds? Of course, Michael puts too much peanut butter in the hair solution, and now his hair is growing too damn fast! Well, you ask, why doesn't he just yell at his hair? Yes, that slows it down for a while, but not long. Now I bet you're thinking, "Michael's evil art teacher will probably want to harvest Michael's hair to make magical paintbrushes about now." Wow, you're way ahead of us. Things get pretty bad for Michael and his buddies, but everything works out in the end. What an adventure!

Aggressively odd Canadian children's film that many adults mistake for [[NightmareFuel a twisted, horrible, haunting fever-induced nightmare they had as a child]] -- only to discover that [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs it's an actual film that actually exists]].

The kid is suddenly bald! Forget that, he has a dream where he learns how to make the titular hair-growing potion! Forget that, the potion is making his hair grow longer and longer! Forget that the hair is magic and this guy has kidnapped the kid and some other kids to make paintbrushes out of it! And on and on.
