I Am Lisa is a mesmerizing movie made on a micro budget. Following small-town, local-loser Lisa (Kristen Vaganos) after she’s bitten by a werewolf, it ultimately offers an intriguing take on revenge horror. Left to die in the woods by a sadistic sheriff and her mean girl underlings after the attack, Lisa seeks retribution all the while struggling to balance her new supernatural abilities with her underlying humanity. It’s an astute take on a female awakening that furthers the argument that more horror films should center on a wider range of people and experiences. Fresh and fun, the compelling storytelling is sure to pull viewers in as it seamlessly weaves werewolf lore into a tried and true revenge narrative complete with working thrills and chills. When paired with the subtle yet impressive makeup work and a perfectly eerie soundtrack, the movie provides an entertaining and endearing entry into the genre.
