3.0 out of 5 stars I wanted to love this January 20, 2013
Format:DVD
I wish I could give this movie five stars. I really do. I love the idea of a manifestation of human evil, coming alive through one of our greatest tools. I love the examination of "trolling" behavior and how it looks when people take that attitude into the real world. I love the idea of the extremes we can go through when we have the advantage of anonymity. And I love the idea of humanity being just a step in the evolution of something truly terrifying.

That being said though, the movie itself is a mess. Most of the actors are good, but the script is a jumbled mess. The dialogue is so overly-dramatic and jarring. It sounds to me like the writers spent a lot of time researching the inner-working of internet communities and personalities in a textbook, but never actually bothered to go online.

I enjoyed the reveal towards the end and thought it made for a very good ending, but the actual last couple of minutes were a little disappointing and predictable.

I think the filmmakers have some great ideas, but could really use some more time at the drawing board, trying to figure out the execution.

I give it three stars for the effort, because I am very impressed with the idea behind it, but I'm willing to admit that it's a generous rating, considering how the whole thing actually panned out.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise. February 18, 2013
Format:DVD
I highly reccomend reading all the one star reviews before watching this. That being said any person handing this film one star is no film junkie and certainly no horror film junkie. There are far worse acted and directed films on the market today by far. Was this a masterpiece of modern horror...no. Do I think it was intended to be...no. How can one watch a horror film about a mass murderer named Smiley and take it seriously? All that being said Smiley delivered with the chills and threw in a couple of twists whether predicatable or not suited the feal of the film well. Kind of a modernized Nightmare on Elm Street/Candyman type for me...at least those are the films I found myself comparing it to while watching. So if your going to go in thinking this is going to knock your socks off don't bother you'll sound like a cliche' bash reviewer. Go on assuming this has a campy factor to it and won't regret it. I'm rewatching.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could be the worst movie I've ever seen. Seriously. February 5, 2013
By S. Horn
Format:DVD
When I first heard about this movie, I was very excited. The trailer looked scary as hell, and the premise was new and original for the slasher subgenre within horror. The mask was awesome (and still is), plus, Keith David (John Carpenter's The Thing, They Live, There's Something About Mary) was in it, how could it be bad? I was telling people about it, genuinely excited for its release. I even shelled out money to the website that the movie would premiere on, promising behind the scenes looks into the 'Making Of'. I joined their video submission contest to see if it would get into the movie. Independent movies like this, especially horror, are what really give fans things that are new and original, so I am happy to support them.

And then I saw it.

Now, this follows the fact that a week before the movie was set to premiere on VOD, the whole idea was shaken up, and AMC Theaters bought the rights to show the movie in various cities around the country, mine included. Great! I went to the theater, and watched. Good God, I can't describe what happens next.

It's awful. Not just regular awful, God-awful. Not 'so bad it's good', this movie reaches levels of 'so bad, it's completely embarrassing'. That in and of itself is interesting, because this is the type of movie that is so bad, it actually is worth discussing, surpassing all bad movies before it, into something completely new. I would even consider having this sitting on my shelf to show people just how bad things can get in the movies. Have you ever been water-boarded? Just watch this movie. You want to put hot spikes into your eyes? Don't worry, this movie fills in as an equivalent, it'll do the trick!

The story is about a girl, Ashley, who goes off to college after her mother dies.

For what it is- I really liked it. Lot's of blood. Lots of screaming. Lots of what I need when I'm in a funky mood.

Smiley huh? Well here is an independent horror movie that really wasn't as bad as what you may think.

The movie borrows the concept of an urban legend and gives it a modern twist using todays technology.

I enjoyed the way the movie kept you guessing, is Smiley supernatural or someone in a costume? and which of the very suspicious characters is the killer?

It all ties up with a very vague ending, not a whole lot is explained but you'll have to see it for yourself ;)

At the end of the movie I found myself with a sense of enjoyment, I think the director and actors all did a great job and anticipate a sequel.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Ho-Hum Affair February 28, 2013
Format:DVD
"Smiley" is a run-of-the-mill teen horror film. Nothing new and exciting here. The problem with that is, this movie could have been really good. The concept is a frightening one - the idea that people on internet chat sites could manifest into serial killers right before their very eyes in real time.

The pacing of the movie is decent, the story is okay, but the acting and the script were quite bad, even for a genre flick like this one. There are a few jumps and scares, but they are too few and far between, and the only good kill scene turns out to be fake. Overall, it's a strange movie, but not for the right reasons. A decent Redbox rental and good for the occasional laugh, but nothing more.

If you're expecting some amazing horror movie then you've chosen the wrong one. While it's not horrible, it's not so amazing that you're going to scream for a sequel.
