Dear Everyone: Can We Just Take a Moment to Appreciate How Hot Logan Browning Is?

  • Popsugar
Dear White People is back for its third season, and we couldn't be more excited to see Sam and the crew back on campus. Sam may no longer be hosting the college radio show, but lucky for us, she is still played by the beautiful Logan Browning. The Netflix dramedy gave Logan her long-awaited breakout role, and since joining the cast as Sam, she's also gone on to costar alongside Allison Williams in the totally creepy Netflix horror flick The Perfection, which debuted in May. We can't wait to see what Logan does next, and while we love her primarily because of her incredible talent, it certainly doesn't hurt that she's a mega hottie - just look at these sexy pics.

7 New Netflix Shows to Check Out in August 2019, and the Best Reasons to Watch

7 New Netflix Shows to Check Out in August 2019, and the Best Reasons to Watch
1. “Glow” Season 3 (available August 9)

Why Should I Watch? The first two seasons of “Glow” were among the best reviewed of their given years, and there’s no reason to suspect Season 3 won’t keep the streak going. Starring the dynamite duo of Alison Brie and Betty Gilpin, “Glow” is a vivid, exciting, perceptive, funny, enlivening, well-acted, and beautifully captured comedy about a group of women wrestlers in the ’80s who band together to put out a compelling TV program built around their unique talents and personalities. “Glow” thrives by mimicking that same ambition, and Season 3 sees them relocating to Las Vegas, where they’ll host live events at one of the casinos. Expect more neon than ever, along with new series regular Geena Davis.

Bonus Reason: The central, slow-burn relationship in “Glow” isn’t a romance, but a friendship. Ever since the pilot, former best friends Ruth (Brie) and Debbie

If You Haven't Yet Watched The Perfection on Netflix, You Might Want to Read These Spoilers First

Warning: Massive spoilers for The Perfection ahead!

Netflix's latest thriller has taken audiences by surprise. The Perfection, a violent and shocking revenge thriller, combines body horror with a psychological revenge scheme to produce a deeply disturbing horror movie. And we're not exaggerating: it's disturbing, shocking, and completely bonkers. We're breaking down the details of the movie - and all its creepy twists.

Directed and cowritten by Richard Shepard (with cowriters Nicole Snyder and Eric C. Charmelo), The Perfection stars Allison Williams as Charlotte, a cellist who was once a rising star at an elite academy who gave up her career for a decade to care for her dying mother. At first, the movie seems like a pretty standard-issue psychological thriller in the vein of something like Black Swan. After her mother's death, Charlotte decides to attempt to resume her career.

Netflix Is Adding A Ton Of Great Horror Movies In July

While many might subscribe to Netflix to enjoy unwinding by digging into some easy-to-digest sitcoms, the streaming giant has also curated a sizable collection of horror films and TV shows.

Just last month, The Perfection was made available, and as we reported at the time, some viewers found it so disturbing that they ended up getting sick. Aside from new movies though, there’s also plenty of spooky anime, creepy classic films and shows like Stranger Things, which borrow elements of horror while infusing them with our love and nostalgia for the 1980s.

Thankfully, Netflix has no plans to slow down, as the company has plenty of great choices heading to the platform next month. Those who enjoy older selections will be glad to hear that classics like Scream 3 and Cloverfield are arriving at the beginning of July, along with a few less creepy choices such as The Book

The Perfection Movie Review

The Perfection is a horror film that could have been so much more than what it eventually turns into: a grisly nauseating amputation and mutilation binge, all tied together by the music of the cello that finally seems ironically incongruous to the progressively perverse tone of the narrative.

At first it isn't so. Two young beautiful classical musicians meet and fall in love in bustling Shanghai. It is when they take off on a bus trip through rural China that all hell breaks loose. Lizzie (Logan Browning) falls violently ill.

Her growing panic is marvellously recorded in the responses of other bus passengers -- from kind to frightened to cruel -- as well as her lover and travelling companion Charlotte (Allison Williams) who seems at first panicked and then strangely smug.

So far it isn't difficult to guess what's going on.

Envy in the world of western classical music dates to Mozart and Salieri.

The Perfection Review: Sex, Shocks and Savagery on Netflix

Lou Thomas May 31, 2019

Netflix's latest original movie is a brutal, wince-inducing horror that follows in Jordan Peele's footsteps.

It didn’t take long for the arrival of the first post-Peele horror smash. The influence of the American director looms large over The Perfection, with Richard Shepard’s brutal puzzler arriving with a murderous glint in its eye and a bloody knife clamped in its fist.

When former cello prodigy Charlotte’s (Allison Williams) mother dies after a long illness, she heads to Shanghai to meet Anton (Steven Weber), the head of her alma mater, the Bachoff Academy of Music. Anton and his wife Paloma (Alaina Huffman) console Charlotte and ask her to help judge potential new students with Lizzie (Logan Browning), Charlotte’s replacement at Bachoff.

After the pair watch a frisson-filled student audition performance, they go clubbing and have sex. During the hungover morning after, Charlotte agrees

The Perfection's Logan Browning on Why Her Wild New Horror Film Made Her Feel "Like a Superhero"

The Perfection's Logan Browning on Why Her Wild New Horror Film Made Her Feel
After you've seen enough horror films, you get to the point where you can start guessing exactly what's going to happen fairly easily, mapping out jump scares long before a violently loud burst of strings attempts to shock you out of your seat. But Richard Shepard's The Perfection is an anomaly of modern day horror, filled with B-movie thrills and chills as well as elevated acting and deeply unexpected twists.

It's bizarre and batsh*t crazy, while also being wildly entertaining, depending on your stamina for gore. But at it's core, once you rinse off all the blood and bugs, is a striking story about two women bonded by their scars - both physical and emotional - and how they're able to begin the healing process only after they've gone through hell and back together.

The two characters in question are played by Allison Williams (Get Out) and Logan Browning

'The Perfection' Team on Netflix Thriller's Timely Twist: "It's About Empowerment and Strength"

'The Perfection' Team on Netflix Thriller's Timely Twist:
[The following story contains spoilers from The Perfection.]

Netflix's twist-filled horror movie The Perfection began with a simple, but universal pitch of the terror of getting sick in a foreign country.

Writer-director-producer Richard Shepard shared with co-writers Eric Charmelo and Nicole Snyder the "seedling of an idea," involving a bus sequence.

"He basically came to us and said one of my biggest fears is being in a foreign country and getting gravely ill on a bus," Charmelo told The Hollywood Reporter ahead of a red carpet screening of the film in New York, with both Charmelo ...

Whoa - Allison Williams and Logan Browning Actually Learned to Play the Cello For The Perfection

Whoa - Allison Williams and Logan Browning Actually Learned to Play the Cello For The Perfection
Now that Richard Shepard's batsh*t crazy new horror film, The Perfection, is streaming on Netflix, you might have a few questions. Like, first and foremost: what the actual f*ck?! (At least that was my reaction after watching.) And perhaps second: have Allison Williams and Logan Browning secretly been wildly talented cellists all this time? Because the scenes of their musical performances are pretty convincing, to say the least.

Although you likely won't see either of the film's stars challenging Yo-Yo Ma to a riff-off anytime soon, the pair actually did learn how to play the cello for their roles. If you haven't seen the film, Williams plays Charlotte, a troubled musical prodigy who seeks out Elizabeth (Browning), the star cellist of the music conservatory she once attended years earlier. Their encounter sends both musicians down a deeply twisted path of love, violence, and revenge, climaxing with a truly insane ending.
