An eerie poster has just been released for sci-fi body shocker Perfect, ahead of the film’s premiere at this year’s SXSW Festival.
Perfect is the feature directorial debut of Eddie Alcazar, who produced the weird-as-fuck 2017 modern midnight movie favourite Kuso. On producing duties is Steven Soderbergh, the Oscar-winning director of Solaris, Traffic and Contagion.
A boy in a cold and stark modern house, in a vaguely science fictional world, is seduced by advertisements of perfection to install implantable characteristics directly into his body. The implants heal his dark, twisted visions, but come with a corporeal cost. He persists on applying them, hoping to reach perfection, but ultimately he discovers that purity of mind is not exactly as he’s imagined.
Perfect stars Garrett Wareing (Independence Day: Resurgence), Courtney Eaton (Mad Max: Fury Road), Abbie Cornish (Sucker Punch), Tao Okamoto (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and Maurice Compte (End of Watch).
