Creepy Smile could be an interesting horror movie judging by the disturbing trailer. Is the next “The Ring” or “It follows” waiting here?
When Gore Verbinski released Ring, the remake of the Japanese horror hit Ringu, in 2002, Western audiences were confronted with a type of horror film they had little connection with before: a deeply disturbing genre that blurs the lines between Psychoterror, the supernatural and human abysses are lifted. American filmmakers quickly approached this subgenre and began not only to fabricate remakes, but also to implement their own ideas that follow this pattern.
Many of these ideas first found their way into the cabinet of horrors of harder viewing pleasure as short films. Like “Lights Out”. In general, short films are the entry point into the business for many younger horror filmmakers. Parker Finn’s short films “The Hidebehind” and “Laura Hasn’t Slept” also attracted attention. Now his first full-length horror film is coming up with “Creepy Smile”. And the first trailer looks really promising:
“Creepy Smile”: Horror film starring “Stranger Things” and “The Boys”
The trailer doesn’t reveal much about the plot, which in this case is very good. Because the horror usually remains most frightening when the audience is groping in the dark for as long as possible. Especially in relation to the origin and nature of evil. In Creepy Smile, a psychiatrist (Sosie Bacon) believes she is slipping into insanity after witnessing a traumatic event. Because since then she seems to follow something. And she has little time left to save herself. Because once she sees it, it will be too late.

Admittedly, Creepy Smile will certainly not reinvent the cinematic wheel, but the trailer looks promising in terms of staging. And if the timing is right, the audience should look forward to a horror film in the style of “It follows”. There are also some fairly familiar faces here. There’s Kal Penn (“Harold & Kumar”), Jessie T. Usher (“The Boys”), Rob Morgan (“Stranger Things”), Judy Reyes (“Scrubs”) and Kyle Gallner (“Scream 5”).
“Creepy Smiles” will be available from the September 29, 2022 start in cinemas.
