Sissy | Hannah Barlow, Kane Senes | AU 2022 | 102 Min | DCP

Performance before the screening: HEATHERS’ BLOOD FEAST: A TALK GONE HORRIBLY WRONG

Sissy is a successful influencer. One day, she runs into an old classmate who promptly invites her to her bachelorette party. The only problem: Alex, Sissy’s schooltime bully, is also invited. And soon, the mentalhealth advocate is consumed by thoughts of revenge. Hannah Barlow (who also acts in this vehicle) and codirector Kane Senes present a venomous, intelligent reckoning with influencer culture, cushioned in a surprisingly ambiguous horror comedy with juicy slasher moments. We’re triggered.
