Because the Fall release calendar is jam-packed with many movies about to be released, it is natural for numerous movies that appear promising but don’t get much attention for no fault. Smile, a horror thriller released by Paramount, is one example of such a movie.
How many times does a horror movie plot involve the idea of someone smiling? Rarely. On the other hand, the premise of this next horror thriller is a little unconventional, and that’s where the excitement lies: the idea that a sinister grin might set off events that defy explanation.
The short film Laura Hasn’t Slept, which was 11 minutes long and directed by Parker Finn, and premiered in 2020, served as the inspiration for Smile. Laura Hasn’t Slept was a winner of the special jury Midnight Short award at the SXSW Film Festival. Caitlin Stasey portrayed Laura, a woman who goes to see her therapist to get assistance for her reoccurring nightmare.
The events of the film Smile revolve around the experiences of a doctor who becomes interested in unraveling a mystery after she watches one of her patients having strange and unpleasant encounters with a supernatural entity. Jennifer Kent directed the smile. She has been a victim for a short time and now needs to face her demons.
Parker Finn makes his debut as a feature-length filmmaker with the film Smile, which he also wrote. In this particular movie, Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey, Isaac Klausner, and Robert Salerno are all involved as producers.

As she continues her investigation, she quickly concludes that her own life is in jeopardy, and she also runs the risk of becoming a victim herself. While she struggles to make sense of what is happening, she discovers that there is another man who has come into contact with this thing but, for some unexplained reason, is still alive.
On May 26, 2022, Paramount released a teaser trailer for the film Smile through their Twitter account. A patient is seen sitting motionless in what appears to be a hospital ward over the teaser’s eight seconds.
The man is seen sitting there, frozen in time, with an alarming smile that gives him a sinister appearance. The teaser did better at building up anticipation for the film than providing factual information about it.
