My Thoughts

The Perfect Husband is an Indie Spousal Horror film with a few thrills. A Couple is set to take a trip to a cabin in the Woods to take minds off of a few things that you only find out about farther along in the movie. Suspicions run deep and madness begins to set in. Who comes out Victorious ? Who else is in the woods? Who is really crazy?Don’t Just trust Any Person You Run up to in the Woods.

The Story runs Thriller Horror with a few spot that suppose to or maybe make you jump but at times it was a no go for me. As for the Story line and Horror element it’s not something new but still brings a few new things. The Story can run slow at times and Acting was OK but at times it got better. Coming from watching stringer things on Netflix to this maybe a bad idea as you should stay fresh from a horror film before going in to stay focus more on the story at hand. Gore factor is small but we do get some. Some Head Chopping and Blood Squirting but at One point blood pumping of a chest gets CGI’d. B ad Choice, Please go old school and just have some one pump it by hand and have it squirt out from a plastic clear tube for a more realistic look. The ending we do get a big twist, that you won t see but now I said something you will come up with a bunch of endings and scenarios in your head while viewing…Sorry

Overall the movie was a decent watch, well put together and good Cinematography. Story and Dialogue could be better but for what it is still may hit its mark with Indie Art Horror film viewers. Bright side is the PQ looks pretty good and sharp but Sound needs a boost in the Volume department. Perhaps if I turned my db’s up from its normal spot I might have jumped once. If you’re not into the film and one of those viewers who want to turn it of, At least get the gist of the film and hit up the last 15 minutes. Might make you want to go back and view the whole thing.

With that said I give The Perfect Husband a 3 out of 5 as the film was a food view. Yes it has most horror elements seen before via cabin in the woods but it also brings a little madness and Psycho into the frame. Maybe a hit or miss but if you walk that line with films Give it a shot, if not Rent it.

Rating – 5 Star System

Note: I Know my speakers are way outdated. OPPO Blu-Ray Player is one of the best around and used in most home theaters. The Receiver is pretty good but on the line of out dated. Subwoofer is good with tons of bass but not the theater quality from a $400 Sub. Front speakers are fun with tons of power and are good for standalone’s but higher end sound (Hz) is lower quality. Overall I need to update on all speakers granted I do get decent sound out of them just the higher end falls short.
