Los Angeles Times - Katie Walsh
Like leading lady Williams, the exterior of The Perfection is flawless, covering up the darkness that lies beneath. The wild ride in store is both supremely disturbing and unpredictable. But rendered with such care, skill and sheer glee — it’s utterly divine.
83
Consequence of Sound - Unnamed
The film is more than an accumulation of shocking twists and surprises. It’s a tawdry but perceptive meditation on the ways that victims of abuse build walls to protect themselves from harm — and the great lengths that someone would have to go to knock those walls down.

Entertainment Weekly - Chris Nashawaty
It delivers. The Perfection is a pure hit of twisted, absurd camp catnip.

IGN - Rosie Knight
If you like weird, boundary-pushing, and unexpected movies that divide audiences you'll probably love The Perfection.

The Hollywood Reporter - Frank Scheck
A stylishly made, nail-biting effort that proves consistently engrossing.
