Smile – Turn that Trauma Upside Down

This week on the Cinemaholics podcast, we review 'Smile,' a new horror film written and directed by Parker Finn and starring Sosie Bacon.

We’re smiling though our hearts are aching. That’s because this week on the show, we’re reviewing Smile, a new horror film from Parker Finn in his feature directorial debut. Starring Sosie Bacon, Kyle Gallner, and Jessie T. Usher, Smile won big at the box office this weekend, right on time for spooky season. We kick off the show with some conversation around the box office results and why we think Bros underperformed (review coming soon). Also, Will takes us aside for a brief chat about two other movies he caught this week: Catherine Called Birdy and The Munsters.
