Smiley Film Trailer Review
Well this is... refreshing? A new serial killer who now wears a smiley mask. The only question is Will it be more like the supernatural "Candy Man", or much more grounded to the truth like the "Scream" killer? Well basing from the genre it falls under, it obviously falls in the latter.
Well, we haven't seen that much slasher films and if ever this new Smiley becomes popular, then we may have ourselves a new series to follow. I just don't know if that's good or bad, but seeing the trend of films in Hollywood for the last decade or so, it is not that inconceivable. I just find it amusing how can a lighthearted emoticon like the smiley can be used as a theme or a mascot for a thriller. The only question is will they actually pull it off?
How about you guys, what do you think about an internet urban legends that may potentially be out there to kill you ala Bloody Mary? Share your thoughts about the Smiley official trailer in the comments section below:
