The trailer has been released for Paramount’s horror thriller “Smile,” and moviegoers are thrilled. Here are all the details you need to know about the cast, plot, director, and release date.
About the Director
“Smile” is directed and written by Parker Finn in his directorial debut, and the film is based on his short film “Laura Didn’t Sleep,” which won the Special Jury Recognition Award for the Midnight Category. Shorts from SXSW. The 11-minute short follows a young woman, Laura (Caitlin Stasey), as she seeks help from her therapist, Dr. Parsons (Lew Temple), after experiencing a recurring nightmare in which she is visited by a scary man whose appearance changes with every dream.
Plot of “Smile”
Inspired by “Laura Hasn’t Slept,” “Smile” is about a therapist, Dr. Rose Cotter (Sosie Bacon), who begins helping a patient (also played by Stasey) after she develops a creepy smile. The patient then goes into a violent explosion and commits suicide. Afterwards, Dr. Cotter tries to cope with the trauma and move on, but she sees a similar pattern of events with other patients, leading her to investigate.
According to ScreenRant, “Cotter ultimately determines that these patients are developing their bizarre smiles within days of seeing the entity, quickly realizing that his pursuit of the case is life-threatening.” The person terrorized by the supernatural entity dies exactly one week later. But she later finds a prisoner (Rob Morgan) who survived the paranormal entity, which makes her optimistic about his survival. The trailer for “Smile” may remind viewers of “The Ring,” directed by Gore Verbinski, but I think this movie will be more exciting and have new twists.
Release date of “Smile”
“Smile” will be in theaters on September 30 and will eventually be available to stream. It’s one of the most anticipated horror movies of the year, and I for one can’t wait. “Smile” looks like a unique and refreshing horror movie, and you can watch the trailer on YouTube now.
