Smile: Trailer and Premise

Smile’s premise follows Rose Cotter, played by Sosie Bacon, a therapist who witnesses a patient’s bizarre suicide and then experiences increasingly disturbing and daunting occurrences. These occurrences lead Rose to believe that what she is experiencing is supernatural. In the short film, Laura Hasn’t Slept, which serves as a prequel to Smile, Laura recounts to her therapist a series of horrific dreams and hallucinations where she is being pursued by a smiling man. She begins to realize that she isn’t where she thinks she is and that the counsellor she is confiding in is actually the entity that has been tormenting her.
