Here's what "Smiley" is all about:
After learning of an urban legend in which a demented serial killer named "Smiley" can be summoned through the Internet, mentally fragile Ashley (Caitland Gerard from Magic Mike and The Social Network) must decide whether she is losing her mind or becoming Smiley’s next victim. The film also stars Melanie Papalia (“Endgame”), Shane Dawson (“Shane Dawson’s TV”) and Andrew James Allen (“Make It or Break It”), with Toby Turner (“The Annoying Orange”), Roger Bart (“Desperate Housewives”), Keith David (The Thing) and Liza Weil (“Scandal”) rounding out the cast.
Regarding the film’s upcoming release, here’s what the press kit says:
SMILEY will be made directly available to a massive global fan base by using a new hybrid approach for distribution. To see the film in theaters, the producers will be utilizing Tugg, Inc. (“Tugg”), a web-platform that lets audiences choose the films that play in their local theater. With Tugg, fans will be able to buy tickets to premiere screenings throughout the U.S. on October 11th and October 31st. Tickets for the premiere screenings will go sale on Monday, July 16th, and fans will be able to request to host their own screenings soon after.
Starting Friday, June 29th, fans will be able to pre-order SMILEY to stream on demand through the film’s website, for a reduced price of five dollars. The buyers will also be prompted to select between a PG-13 or R-rated Director’s Cut of the film. At 12:01 am on October 11th, audiences will receive an email notification that SMILEY is now available to stream over their computers, smart TV’s, smart phones and tablets in the U.S. and most international markets through Redux’s Artists platform, which enables artists and filmmakers to sell video content directly to their audience across every screen.
