A rather cryptic yet unnerving brief teaser for “Smile” hit theaters a few weeks ago. A few days later, Paramount gave us the first full trailer for this creepy looking horror movie from writer-director Parker Finn. This is the feature film debut for Finn who is adapting his own 2020 film short titled “Laura Hasn’t Slept”. His new trailer is an interesting mix of the familiar and the fresh. I’m anxious to see how the movie actually turns out.
Built around a still mysterious premise, this New Jersey-set chiller looks to center around a doctor named Rose (Sosie Bacon) who begins witnessing eerie behavior from her patients. Before long, she begins to wonder if it’s her own mind that’s playing tricks on her. The trailer features lots of creepy laughing and a few unexpected angles that could make this a surprising little horror film. Oh and that jolt at the end…well done!
“Smile” hits theaters September 30th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
