But how does yassify (i.e. to ‘assify’) explain itself? CNN has the answer to you.
1 / 5 – What is it?
Yassify is the newly released horror movie of 2019, a 70-minute horror-comedy about the modern battle between beauty and android oppression. With the likes of Chris Evans, Cara Delevingne and Robin Wright among its cast members, “Yassify” is a sequel of sorts to “Scary Movie,” — where nerds vs. bots were but a minor factor in the story. The film was directed by Osgood Perkins, who wrote the screenplay alongside Napoleon Weber, Matt Pizzolo and Evan Patricof. Credit: Courtesy Tigerlily Productions
