Smiley is the new internet serial killer movie. That alone has a nice spin on the regular serial killer plot. Smiley stars Caitlin Gerard, Melanie Papalia, Shane Dawson, Toby Turner, Roger Bart and Keith David. Here’s hoping that Smiley will deliver on the expectations.
The story of the film follows a mentally fragile college student named Ashley (Caitlin Gerard from "Magic Mike" and "The Social Network") who, after learning of an urban legend in which a mysterious serial killer named "Smiley" can be summoned through the Internet, must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley’s next victim.
Synopsis: After discovering an urban legend of a demented serial killer, who has nothing but a carved 'smiley' on his face, a mentally fragile teen must decide whether she is going insane - or will be the next victim.
