Sissy Review: Aisha Dee Shocks & Awes in Conflicting Horror Feature

The concept of bullying has been around in film for ages when it comes to adolescence and the portrayal of female friendships on screen. In Sissy, writer-directors Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes tackle these issues through their character Cecilia, a 20-something social media influencer with a yearning for being needed and well-liked. Not too far off from the realities of acquiring internet fame, their script provides a foundation for decent commentary on bullying, seeking validation, and growing from past trauma. Yet, it stumbles in execution. Sissy sacrifices its themes for violence and surface-level explorations of psychological realism, making it as frustrating as it is compulsively fun.
