Variety notes in their report this afternoon, “Shudder will be the exclusive streamer for the film in North America, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland.”
“Directors Hannah Barlow and Kane Senes’ script crafted something special, a stylish and thoroughly modern horror comedy with bite, led fearlessly by Aisha Dee,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s general manager. “We can’t wait for audiences to meet ‘Sissy.’”
Sissy stars Aisha Dee. Expect our review out of SXSW real soon.
“Sissy tells the story of young friends Cecilia (Aisha Dee) and Emma (Hannah Barlow), who were inseparable until Alex (Emily De Margheriti) showed up. After Emma and Cecilia run into each other 12 years later, Emma invites Cecilia for weekend at a secluded cabin in the mountains, where Alex turns Cecilia’s weekend into a living nightmare.”
The cast also includes Hannah Barlow, Emily De Margheriti, Daniel Monks, Yerin Ha, Lucy Barrett, Shaun Martindale, Amelia Lule, April Blasdall, and Camille Cumpston.
