Parker Finn’s ‘Smile 2’ Promises More Chilling Thrills: First Trailer Unveiled

BTN News: Few debuts have borne so strong a stamp on the cinematic horror world as Parker Finn’s Smile which hit release in 2022. Defined by a series of eerie trailers (and one very clever marketing campaign), the movie became a breakout hit, earning money at the box office and praise from even the snobbiest of horror enthusiasts. Smile proved to be a commercial success in its limited release and won over audiences with its chilling plotline and powerful performances, all on a modest budget.

A Chilling Success Story

Smile Is about therapist Rose Cotter (Sosie Bacon), a young woman finds herself trying to shrug off an extremely creepy, supernatural curse materializing through the eerie grins of everyone around her. These menacing grins, however, wait just until you die and then own your body forever, weaving a very creepy history. The directorial debut for Finn and the super strong performance of Bacon in the lead role created an absolutely terrifying event and ultimately helped the film earn its title of one of the most horrifying releases of the year.
