Director Michael Gallagher’s (“Totally Sketch”) Smiley hits theaters on Friday, October 12. AMC will exclusively release the film theatrically through its AMC independent platform on 28 screens in 14 markets including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston and Atlanta.
Brad (Mr. Disgusting) has seen the film and didn’t find much to love. In fact, it’s one of his least favorite movies of the year thus far. “[The film] attempts to tap into modern technology. Unfortunately, the only thing it taps into is a wellspring of generic slasher tropes that mainstream horror fans will scoff throw popcorn at. It’s bad enough that this cool concept (‘Candyman’ with a hint of ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street’) is ruined by the fake scares, but the ship is finally sunk by a heavy dose of exposition that attempts at an extreme and unnecessary clarity”
