User Reviews

Good ol Italian horror!
8 May 2015 | by Sick_Inside666See all my reviews

As a horror film fan, I have wanted to see "The Perfect Husband" for a while, ever since I saw the violent trailer and clips. It does not disappoint in the gory violence department, but I found it to be too short, with an abrupt ending. Still, the film is a haunting exploration of the darkest corners of the human psyche; a portrait that doubles, or maybe masquerades, as a slasher.

Gabriella Wright is good in the role of Viola, although her role does not demand much from her, except for a few scenes of considerable emotional range. The final minutes of the movie include an unbelievable twist that is sure to leave the viewer in a state of shock.

This Italian film is not a must-see film by any means, but it is a must for art-house and horror film fans.
