The Perfection is an upcoming Netflix Original horror-thriller film, created by Richard Shepard, Nicole Snyder, and Eric C. Charmelo. Directed by Richard Shepard (Ugly Betty, Dom Hemingway), the film went into production in 2017 and didn’t begin filming until early 2018. Production was handled by Miramax and Capstone Film Group. Prior to debuting at Fantastic Fest, The Perfection was not picked up for distribution until after it debuted.

The Perfection arrives on Friday, May 24th, 2019!

Subscribers will be happy to hear that the Original will be available to audiences worldwide.

Is a sequel planned for The Perfection?

There is nothing to suggest that a sequel is in the works for The Perfection. Like a lot of Netflix horror titles, we fully expect this film to be stand alone.
