One of the most pleasant surprises of 2022, Sissy completely subverts the slasher genre with its social media commentary and innovative horror visions. It's unpredictable, suspenseful, and ultimately satisfying.
Horrors about bullying and revenge are not uncommon, but Sissy has created a quite intriguing entry to the subgenre, thanks to its superb writing. The oversaturated premise of a get-together gone wrong is executed here with utmost style, gore and clever plot devices to ensure a hair-raising, uncomfortable experience.
Acting wise Aisha Dee is the absolute heart of the ensemble, playing the titular character with unbelievable range and presence. It's also admirable how the story brings the spotlight to the issues of mental health in its own provocative manner. Overall Sissy is a worthwhile fun ride that offers horror and comedy in equal measure. Highly recommended.
