The Nerd Mentality has written a detailed, mostly positive and very analytical review of our film The Perfect Husband. Check it out – here are some snippets:
“A whirlwind combination of exciting cinematography, ideas, and brutal violence. It’s an extremely hard film to sit through, and not because its in anyway bad or boring. Quite the contrary actually, this is an extremely effective film. It evokes feelings similar to the original I Spit on Your Grave or Last House on the Left. The violence is as exploitative as it gets and will make all but the most jaded and desensitized viewers squirm. The Perfect Husband will be a tough and uncomfortable watch for those who have been affected by an abusive relationship due to the realism in this performance. Gabriella Wright does a wonderful job as well with the role of Viola. The Perfect Husband is a film that works for me not only because it reminds me of so many genre films that I love, but even more so for reasons I can’t really talk about without giving too much of the film away. It’s a narrative that is fairly straightforward but comes with some surprises that ultimately make the depraved journey worth it. While The Perfect Husband features some sheer brutality in it’s violence and portrayal of mental illness, this is complimented with some beautiful cinematography that makes it gorgeous to look at the film as you peak through your fingers. The Perfect Husband feels like a combination of many different films you’ve seen before: the previously mentioned Antichrist in basic premise, the exploitative violence against women in films such as I Spit on Your Grave, the slashers of the 1980’s. Even though the film is Italian in origin it has much in common with the French extremist horror movement films of the mid 2000s, like High Tension or Martyrs….I give this release of The Perfect Husband a recommendation for anyone who is a fan of cinema not afraid to repeatedly punch you in the gut. It is intense, brutally violent & gory, tension filled, well acted, and will make you want a shower afterward. Familiar or not, that’s perfect exploitation film making as far as I’m concerned.” – The Nerd Mentality
While we have never paid for a review, we thought, fuck it, and just sent our new intern, Candy, to the offices of Nerd Mentality to show our appreciation. Keep up the good work boys.
