Directed and written by Patrick Finn, Smile expands upon a world originally explored in his own short film Laura Hasn’t Slept from 2020. Dr. Rose Cotter (Sosie Bacon), a therapist at a psychiatric emergency room, begins experiencing strange, frightening occurrences after witnessing the gruesome death of a patient. Not only does she confront her own past traumas, but she seeks to unravel the mystery of why such a creepy smile is following her. The disease is reminiscent of that found in the 2014 film It Follows, though instead of spreading sexually, Smile creates a linking of PTSD. Those who witness the suicide of the evil spirit compelling them to commit the act are then themselves the next victim, as is clearly seen with Rose’s patient and with Rose.
