‘Sissy” is an Australian horror slasher film written and directed by Kane Senes and Hannah Barlow and stars Aisha Dee (The Bold Type) as Cecilia, a successful social media influencer living the dream, until she runs into her ex-childhood best friend (played by Barlow) and is invited away on her bachelorette weekend. Suddenly Cecilia, or “Sissy,” finds herself stuck in a remote cabin with her childhood bully as memories of her childhood trauma start to come back to her.

I really didn’t know what to expect out of this so I went in with zero expectations whatsoever. The first half of this film was fine, but I really felt like it wasn’t really going anywhere. It’s a really slow start to a slasher film that only featured a couple of cheap and meaningless horror moments here and there just to remind you that, yes, you’re watching what is supposed to be a horror film. It wasn’t a bad first half, the writing, directing and performances were all good, but I felt there was something missing that it needed … and man did that second half give me more than I could ever ask for.
