Storyline

On January 18, 2003, police, alerted by a frantic 911 call from a distraught pair of teenage girls, arrived at the girls Toronto area town house to find their mother dead. It appeared the 44-year-old alcoholic, having slipped into a booze-and-pill stupor, drowned in her own bathwater. The death was ruled accidental by the authorities. In the months that followed, however, police were alerted to rumours and reports that the teenagers had been gossiping to friends about the accident. Police began piecing together rumours that suggested the teens might have had a hand in their mother's death. In fact, rather than an accident, the story that emerged portrayed the two teens as cold-blooded, premeditated killers. Written by Anonymous

worth seeing due based on true events
10 December 2016 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

If it wasn't based on true events this could be a pure rip-off of Heavenly Creatures (1994) another flick based on true events.

Here we have two sisters fed up with their mother being drunk whole the time and bringing in the wrong guys only to have sex before the eyes of their daughters due being drunk, always having abusive relationships . Slowly the sisters and their friends are making a simple plan to kill her. Doing so they almost got away with it wasn't it for the fact that one of the sisters starts to tell everybody she killed her mother.

Like in Heavenly Creatures we also have dream sequences so comparing both flicks is easy. But Perfect Sisters shows that it clearly was a TV flick where as Heavenly Creatures was more brutal and performances were better.

It isn't all that bad and I watched it with my teen daughter (15 just as the sisters aged 14 and 15) who never turned her face away by which I mean, there's no horror in it or even any creepy moments. Even when they are killing the mother it's all done without terror.

Due being based on a true story it's worth picking up just to see how people can influence each other when they are weak. Not a perfect flick but indeed perfect sisters...
