Smiley Review

12 October 2012 3:42 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Finally, a slasher for the cyber-obsessed generation we live in, knowledgeably created by the geekers that have amassed millions of YouTube views in an effort to rule the internet.

Director Michael J. Gallagher is responsible for the comedy channel “Totally Sketch,” Shane Dawson you may recognize from “Shane Dawson TV,” and Toby Turner of “The Annoying Orange” fame all provide social commentary about the 4chan viewing, meme-crazed teenagers who waste hours surfing the internet. Smiley is their techie brain-child which exploits the internet’s wicked ways, creating a slasher villain who brings “trolling” to horrific new heights. This is what happens when doing it for the “lulz” goes wrong, and when emoticons attack.

So for those lost in today’s current trend of LOLcats, memes, YouTube sensations, misspelled text, made up words, and the art of “trolling,” consider yourself far outside the intended demographic of Smiley. Stuffed with internet jokes »

New “Smiley” Trailer

24 September 2012 11:00 AM, PDT | FamousMonsters of Filmland | See recent Famous Monsters of Filmland news »

We’ve been following Michael Gallagher’s (Totally Sketch) upcoming horror movie rather closely (if only because “Smiley” himself is so creepy looking), and as its limited release nears (October 12th in select cities like NY, La, Chicago, Philly, Houston, and Atlanta), we have a new trailer for the indie horror movie:

Synopsis:

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.” Smiley also stars Melanie Papalia (“Endgame”) and Andrew James Allen (“Make It or Break It”), with Roger Bart (“Desperate Housewives”), Keith David (“The Thing”) and Liza Weil (“Scandal”) rounding out the cast.

AMC Theaters Partners With Fever Productions For Exclusive Smiley Theatrical Release On October 12

By Daniel Schindel

Well take a look at that. I’m not familiar with Michael Gallagher’s YouTube work, but this image from his new movie Smiley does more than enough to pique my interest. The plot doesn’t exactly sound that original, but quality always lies in the execution. It’s fascinating how Internet stars are increasingly crossing over to work in the “legitimate” filmmaking world. Stuff like Smiley is likely a harbinger of what we can expect for the future of movie making.
