‘The Perfection’ Is Making Netflix Viewers Sick

It’s not the first time a horror film has been quoted as “making people sick”, but now we can add the first Netflix movie to be referred to as such. The Perfection, which is a new horror film from director Richard Shepard, is the first of its kind for Netflix. Viewers are expressing their utter sickness from having seen the film which contains scenes such as a woman vomiting up maggots.

It’s not unusual for a horror movie to conjure up such intense reactions from an audience, but it’s worth noting that the hype could make it another big hit for Netflix. After their viral success with films like Birdbox, it might be exactly what they’re hoping for.

Richard Shepard previously spoke about the vomit scene, revealing that the entire film was built around the idea.

“For years I had had this idea for a thriller on a bus. Being sick and trapped in a foreign country, but it really wasn’t a full movie. It was [just] a sequence.”

“We actually broke an entirely different story around the bus sequence,” he added, explaining that they eventually went back to the drawing board. “But it wasn’t exciting us. It wasn’t character driven. It wasn’t twisted enough. So we started again and came up with the whole musical element.”

By the sound of things, it seems Shepard achieved his goal of creating a twisted horror film with visceral and memorable moments of terror. Although some viewers may be too repulsed to appreciate his efforts, it’s incredible to learn the lengths at which Shepard and his team went to produce the movie.
