Trivia

The film was shot mostly at night using Sony digital cameras and anamorphic lenses. Much of the shooting used available light to create a "mysterious" look because "David wanted the film to be dark," according to the film's director of photography Peter Simonite. See more »

Goofs

When Sanaa's character introduced the new guy in her life to her friends at lunch she introduced him as Robert not Carter. She hadn't known the name Robert at that point in the movie. See more »

I wish they made this movie a spin off of The Following
27 February 2016 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

For those of us that watched the Following

Michael Ealy basically plays the exact same character in the Following and in The perfect guy.. a Genius Info technology expert and psychopath who is a expert and using false identities and keeping his true identity a secret at all costs..

At the end of the followings last season Ryan Hardy (Kevin Bacon.. Hero) and Theo Noble(Michael Ealy) fall off a bridge into the water and you don't see what happens to Theo after that.

All Ryans friends and the police department assume both of throw died in the fall

Ryan continues to go after the bad guys after that rogue agent.

But we are never given closure to what happened to Theo Noble(Michael Ealy)..

Also Theo Noble is much more of a bad ass then Carter..

Did anyone notice if there are any easter eggs that suggests Theo is Carter?

Would have give it 8/10 if it had been a spin off or had some hidden easter eggs in it to suggest it was
