Smiley Face Killers Trailer

By RodneyHatfieldJr for Movies

My Glover radar pinged back in December when the news came out he was going to be playing in this film. Which is inspired by true events story. To say I am a Crispin Glover fan is a moot point. Glover is an acclaimed actor. Then in February, they released news he is playing the slasher. My happy meter spiked. Now we have a trailer and release date. Anytime I can watch Glover being the antagonist, I am a cheerfully grinning little boy.


Smiley Face Killers comes from the mind of acclaimed novelist Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho) and director Tim Hunter (River’s Edge). This thriller will be slashing its way onto Digital and On Demand, and also be available on Blu-ray on December 8 from Lionsgate.


This fascinating story is inspired by true events and the theory from New York City detectives Kevin Gannon, Anthony Duarte, and Dr. Lee Gilbertson, a criminal justice professor at historic St. Cloud State University. Having gained a cult status that has gripped the American imagination. Here is the rundown:


“As a strange wave of mysterious drownings of male college students plagues the picturesque California coast, Jake Graham (Ronen Rubinstein) struggles to keep his life together at school. Finding himself stalked by a hooded figure (Glover) driving an unmarked van, Jake fears he may become the next victim in the ruthless killers’ horrific spree.”

Check out the official trailer below.
