Smile

Once you see it, it’s too late.

After witnessing a bizarre, traumatic incident involving a patient, Dr. Rose Cotter (Sosie Bacon) starts experiencing frightening occurrences that she can’t explain. As an overwhelming terror begins taking over her life, Rose must confront her troubling past in order to survive and escape her horrifying new reality.

“Turn up your nose, if you must, at the lowly cheap sting of a jump scare. ‘Smile’ gives that maligned device a workout for the ages. It rattles with aplomb.” (Digital Trends)

“It’s to the movie’s credit that it doesn’t overplay its hand — or rather, its killer kisser — while still milking the unnerving sight for all its worth.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“This fun little scare machine is elevated by an absolutely heartbreaking performance from Sosie Bacon.” (Horror Queens Podcast)

“The combination of a committed central performance from the increasingly gaunt and haunted Bacon, and a jarring, tortured score, makes for an enjoyably nasty brush with the smiling face of evil.” (Observer UK)
