This thriller/horror follows Charlotte (Williams), a musical prodigy as she returns to the school that honed her skills as a youth before her mother took ill forcing her to leave. Upon return, she is immediately befriended by Lizzie (Browning), a fellow prodigy. They quickly become an item enjoying each other’s company at the very demanding request of Lizzie.
After a night out together, Lizzie sets out on a low-key journey to make a date for her next concert. Along the way, she’s stricken with a mysterious illness that harkens to the call of Contracted (2013).
As to not give much away, because this is a twist-filled film, we the viewers are taken on an eye-opening ride from that point on. With a little bit of horror, deception, thrills, and shock value, The Perfection is direct to the point never really giving you a reason to want to look away. Not exactly a family movie…at all, so it’s best to sit the kids out for this one. Well worth the view though, enjoy.
