Allison Williams' New Movie Looks Like A Creepy Prequel To 'Get Out'

I can't look away from the trailer

Allison Williams' latest film for Netflix, The Perfection, is reminding some people of Get Out.

According to the official synopsis, Williams stars as "troubled musical prodigy," Charlotte, who "seeks out the new star pupil of her former school," Elizabeth (Logan Browning). The spine-chilling trailer shows that she isn't really seeking out a new friend, though, and starts with Charlotte and Elizabeth on a hike where Elizabeth is freaking out and telling Charlotte that she's going to die, before seeing her arm, which looks like it has bugs crawling under the skin.

At first, Charlotte looks like she's worried for her friend, but, as she pulls out a cleaver, her eyes look dark and calculated. "Well, you know what you have to do," she tells her. As the trailer progresses, it becomes more and more clear that Charlotte's attack on Elizabeth was planned and may involve supernatural forces and other people. In one part of the trailer, we see her looking at a man off-camera, looking scared as he says "you know what happens now." We don't, but it doesn't sound good.

Charlotte's preying on a Black character has Twitter making the connection between this film and Get Out, and has some thinking that it feels like a prequel of some sort. Though we can't tell from this trailer if Elizabeth's race is the reason she was sought out by Charlotte, we can see the parallels.

Decide for yourself by watching the trailer, below. The Perfection comes to Netflix on May 24.

Lights off

Neutrogena's Light Therapy Acne Mask and Activator—the one that's inspired many-a-selfie across the interwebs—is being recalled for potential eye damage. "Our decision to recall this product is being made out of an abundance of caution," Neutrogena shared in a recall statement on its website, adding that the product is still safe when used once a day, as directed. While the brand does acknowledge the potential damage to the eyes, Neutrogena insists that this is "rare, generally mild, and transient."

Because Pennywise, of course

Warner Bros. Pictures just dropped the final trailer for It Chapter Two, and it's very bloody. Though it takes place decades after the events of the 2017 film, that doesn't mean that the "Losers" are free of Pennywise's horrors.

Was it worth it to see how you'd age?

If you've been on social media lately, you'll know that the latest craze is using an app called FaceApp to see what you'd look like as an old person. And, while the photos are pretty funny, they do come with the cost of your own privacy. FaceApp now has the access to names and photos of over 150 million people, according to Forbes, and it can pretty much do anything with this information.
