Netflix releases the trailer for The Perfection. Directed by Richard Shepard, the horror thriller stars Get Out actress Allison Williams. From 2012 to 2017, the pair collaborated on Lena Dunham’s Girls, as Shepard directed 12 episodes of the HBO series. Last September, The Perfection premiered at Fantastic Fest and was then acquired by Netflix.
In The Perfection, Williams stars as a musical prodigy named Charlotte. The narrative takes a dark turn when Charlotte confronts the new star musician at her former school (Dear White People’s Logan Browning as Elizabeth). Co-written by Shepard, The Perfection features a score by Austrian musician Paul Haslinger (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter) and cinematography by Vanja Cernjul (Crazy Rich Asians, The Deuce). In supporting roles, The Perfection features Steven Weber (NCIS: New Orleans) and Alaina Huffman (Smallville). Netflix describes The Perfection as “overflowing with dizzying horror and sly dark humor.”
