The massacre begins when a social media star reluctantly agrees to attend an ex-girlfriend's bachelor party in this incredibly unexpected film.
Sissi is fun to watch, although a strong stomach and understanding of gender conventions is highly recommended. But for the same reason it creates revision problems. For a long time it was not clear where this was going. not only in terms of plot, but also in terms of key questions such as who is the villain (or bad guy) and who is the victim.
MacGuffin is a chance encounter between Sissy and her former best friend Emma (Hannah Barlow), the latter with a much greater desire to be fulfilled than the former. The reunion is unusually choreographed as the director passes each actor in front of the camera, breaking through the fourth wall while continuing the conversation. This emphasizes the shyness of the encounter and has the effect of deliberately displacing; the form of the film does one thing (creates distance by alienating the audience) and content another (makes Sissy suffer from unwanted interactions).
Sissy reluctantly agrees to attend Emma's bachelorette party, held at the secluded house where most of the film takes place. The short dream sequence of about 20 minutes, ending with visions of young Susie covered in blood, marks a turning point as the film moves into more terrifying territory, even as she holds her cards close enough to her chest. Sissy goes to a bachelorette party and hits a kangaroo, which probably doesn't bode well for things to come. This scene reminds me of a moment from the Ozploitation classic "The Long Weekend", and for God's sake it didn't work for the main character in this film; a married couple who paid a heavy price for neglecting their environment when all of nature turned against them. .
Sissy's horror is more personal, rooted in the horrors of character rebirth and old relationships that we'd rather leave in the past. Another contestant on The Bachelor is Alex (Emily DeMargheriti), Sissy's former high school friend with whom she has a dramatic fight. Things get complicated at the dinner table, where Sissy is reprimanded for her somewhat fictional charms, which the group disapproves of, until a bloody mess ensues for reasons I won't reveal here.
Aisha Dee's excellent performance in the lead role keeps the satire alive and cleverly hides certain aspects of the film. we don't know whether to pity him, cheer for him, what to think about him, period. All avenues ultimately lead to social media commentary and the healthcare industry, two entities that are increasingly seen as the bane of modern existence but seem to endure.
Given the dizzying horror of the last act, which has hilarious moments and scenes you'll definitely overlook, audiences will be glued to the walls rather than stepping out to appreciate the feel of the film for discussion. satire. But there is an element of satire under the fake blood and smeared body parts. They add a level of perhaps unexpected depth to a film that is spectacularly unpredictable until its bittersweet ending; a very difficult and commendable endeavor in a codified and conventional genre like horror.
