‘SMILE’ Cast and Crew Reveal How they Crafted the Film’s Psychological Terror

In anticipation of the imminent release of Parker Finn‘s feature directorial debut, the psychological shocker, Smile, Paramount has dropped a featurette which takes us behind the scenes with Finn, star Sosie Bacon (“Mare of Easttown,” “Scream”) and the rest of the cast of the film as they discuss the creation of the psychological terror in the film.

Written and directed by Parker Finn, based on his 2020 short film Laura Hasn’t Slept, and starring Bacon, Jessie T. Usher (A-Train in “The Boys”), Kyle Gallner (Scream (2022), Master Cleanse), Robin Weigert (“American Horror Story”), Caitlin Stasey (Kindred Spirits, Fear, Inc.) with Kal Penn (“Clarice,” “Designated Survivor”) and Rob Morgan (“Stranger Things,” Don’t Look Up), Smile centers on Dr. Rose Cotter (Bacon) who, after witnessing a bizarre, traumatic incident involving a patient, starts to experiencing unexplainable disquieting occurrences. As an overwhelming terror begins taking over her life, Rose is forced to face her troubling past in order to survive and escape her horrifying new reality.

Smile is slated to release in UK cinemas this September 28, followed by a US theatrical release on September 30.

In the meanwhile, we’ll leave you with the suitably titled “It’s smiling at me” featurette. And remember: Once you see it. It’s too late…
