The Imperfects just dropped its second trailer, and it is beyond rewatchable. The first trailer indicated that these three college kids got to experiment on a scientist without their consent. They evolved into monsters because of the treatment.
The first trailer is too cryptic; we never learn what kind of creatures they have evolved into. The second trailer finally reveals the transformation of the show’s three main characters. The trio turned into a Chupacabra, a Banshee, and Succubus. Finally, we see mythical creatures on TV that are not Vampires and werewolves.
The Imperfects, 2nd trailer
Dr. Alex Sarkov (Rhys Nicholson, from Rupaul’s Drag race down under) scammed three young zoomers to undergo gene therapy for their health conditions. These poor children have the misconception that they are participating in an infamous experiment as guinea pigs. One of the unintended consequences of the treatment was that it transformed them into monstrosities. I am referring to monsters from folklore in their literal form.
Juan Ruiz (Iñaki Godoy), the shy one, became a Chupacabra. You know, the monster from Mexican folklore blamed on why those cows got sucked to death until only skin and bones were left. Tilda Webber (Morgan Taylor Campbell), the rebellious one, became a Banshee, A female humanoid from Irish folklore known for its loud screams. Last but not least is Abby Singh (Rhianna Jagpal). She is the academic and conservative girl who always gets straight A’s at school but ironically becomes a succubus. A demon is known for seducing men. The experiment gave her the ability to control men with her pheromones.
With nothing in joint, these three oddballs decided to team up with Dr.Sydney Burke. Dr. Sarkov wanted to turn all humans into monsters, and only his first three victims were the only ones who could stop him. The Imperfects will premiere on Netflix this September 8, 2022.
