Netflix’s new film “The Perfection” is ailing — rather than in a fantastic way.
Viewers are reporting nausea, nausea, and even vomiting after viewing the 90-minute horror film’s especially gory scenes.
From the thriller, which began streaming on Netflix May 24, “Ladies” star Allison Williams plays Charlotte, an elite cellist who travels to Shanghai to get a music contest, meeting her instructor Anton (Steven Webber) and up-and-coming prodigy Lizzie (Logan Browning, best known for”Dear White People”).
Charlotte and Lizzie fast bond, heading on a road trip into the Chinese countryside following Lizzie downs aspirin to get a hangover.
At the rear of an old-school bus, Lizzie projectile vomits, leaving puke smeared across the window. The following shot shows it running with maggots. Once Lizzie is struck by nausea on board, the set has been thrown off the bus and then Lizzie once more melts bug-infested bile.
Fans are taking to Twitter to declare they are physically sickened from the recurring tableaus from the thriller.
The horror film in the vein of “Get Out” (also starring Williams) and”Us, “The Perfection” — along with its own disgusting scenes — is the brainchild of director Richard Shepard (Dom Hemingway). Having pictured the bus vomit scene, he stated, it was tricky to execute.
“It was tough to edit because Logan is yelling and freaking out so much. Just looking at takes was exhausting. We’d have to work for a few hours and take a big break,” he advised horror film site Bloody Disgusting.“Having great reaction shots of the passengers helped.”
Williams has become famous for enjoying apparently perfect girls that are also deeply troubled.
“The scripts I’ve read recently that have felt the most vital and relevant to today were in the horror genre,” she told The Post’s Alexa earlier this month. She explained to In Session movie: “I think I learnt a lot about how to do this very specific kind of thing with ‘Get Out.’”
She added that her parents, NBC legend Brian Williams and TV producer Jane Gillan Stoddard, are having difficulty stomaching their daughter’s newest characters.
“My parents have been saying, ‘When are we just going to be able to relax for one of your movies?’” she says. “I don’t know if that’s ever going to happen.”
