2. The Perfection

Release Year: 2019

Directed By: Richard Shepard

Starring: Allison Williams, Logan Browning, Steven Weber, Alaina Huffman, Molly Grace

Release Date: Friday, May 24

There’s something about Allison Williams that makes her want to just scare the living daylights out of all of us, apparently. After wrapping six seasons of the HBO comedy series Girls, on which she played the hilariously unlikable Marnie Michaels, Williams starred in Jordan Peele’s Oscar-winning horror film Get Out as the villain. Now she’s headlining Netflix’s latest scarer, The Perfection, and if history serves us right, we shouldn’t trust her character at all.

Allison Williams stars in The Perfection as trouble music prodigy Charlotte. When she seeks out Elizabeth (Logan Browning), who happens to be the new leading talent at Charlotte’s former school, their experience together sends each musician down a sinister path full of shocking and dark twists and turns. The full premise of the film has been kept tight-lipped, but that’s all the better to ensure the suspenseful flicks hits us all with surprise chills and thrills.

The Perfection comes from director Richard Shepard, who also helmed Dom Hemingway and also directed many episodes of Girls. The film also stars Dear White People star Logan Browning in the co-leading role alongside Williams. In September 2018, The Perfection made its premiere at Fantastic Fest and was one of the most buzzed-about titles, leading to Netflix scooping up distribution rights. If you’re on board for a good scare before summer, your watch list will have the perfect movie waiting for you on May 24.
