The Smiling Man Review: "a truly nightmarish creation."

We are grateful to the awesome folks at Hickey's House of Horror for taking the time out to check out our film and write their fantastic review of The Smiling Man. It's got some spoiler-y bits, but it's hard to be spoiler-free when you're reviewing a film with a running time of seven minutes.

If you haven't seen it yet but want to get the gist of the review, we've pulled some quotes for you:

  • "this may be a short but it looks every bit as polished as a big studio feature."
  • "[Strange] Dave's performance is spectacularly creepy."
  • "a superbly executed and lean exercise in carefully cultivated fear."
  • "With a great cast, some superb effects work and an assured confident director who knows how to shoot horror, The Smiling Man is an absolute must-see."

If you're looking to check out the film, we'll be screening this weekend in Brazil at the MAC Horror Film Festival to close out November, and we'll be at A Night of Horror in Australia and PDXtreme in Portland in December.
