The third official poster for the upcoming horror thriller ‘Smiley’ has been released. The poster shows one of the victims of the film’s title serial killer, wearing his mask. The mask stitches together the victim’s eyes, as well as her mouth, into a smile.
‘Smiley,’ which was directed by Michael J. Gallagher, will be exclusively released theatrically on Friday, October 12. The film will be shown via AMC’s independent platform on 28 screens in 14 markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston and Atlanta. The release will be supported by a marketing campaign from AMC.
Co-written by Gallagher and Glasgow Phillips, ‘Smiley’ follows a mentally fragile college student, Ashley (played by Caitlin Gerard), who learns of an urban legend in which Smiley can be summoned through the Internet. After calling Smiley out with her housemate, Proxy (portrayed by Melanie Papalia), Ashley must decide whether she’s the serial killer’s next victim, or if she’s losing her mind.
