WARNING: Spoilers for The Perfection below.

Allison Williams‘ new Netflix movie is really getting to people — and not in a good way.

The Perfection, which started streaming on Netflix last Friday, features Williams as Charlotte, a revered cellist who travels to Shanghai for a competition. There she meets Lizzie (Dear White People‘s Logan Browning), an up-and-coming prodigy who immediately hits it off with Williams and the two embark on a Chinese countryside road trip.

The trouble starts when the two are on a bus during the trip and Browning’s Lizzie starts feeling sick. She projectile vomits onto the window and a shot reveals it’s crawling with maggots. After they get kicked off the bus, Lizzie keeps feeling sicker and continues to throw up bug-infested vomit.

Williams, 31, recently told PEOPLE that the inspiration for the bus scene came from director Richard Shepard, who went through a similar experience.

“A big portion of that came from Richard’s experience of being sick in Mexico on a bus,” she said. “And it’s just so viscerally relatable and horrifying and of course in our movie it takes a turn that you’re not really expecting.”

The scene only gets more intense from there, and viewers at home have been flooding Twitter with warnings about how “sick” the movie gets.

“i actually feel physically sick after watching the perfection, i couldnt take the bugs man, i was about to turn the movie off but im glad i didnt, the ending was good,” one user wrote.

The Perfection is streaming on Netflix now.
