The creepy movie trailer for Smile has arrived and people are saying it’s so scary they’re ‘dropping their phones’. 

The film follows a doctor named Rose Cotter (played by Sosie Bacon), who is forced to confront her past in order to deal with the horrors ahead of her.

Disturbingly, she is haunted by a person – or thing – that continuously smiles at her with a menacing grin (hence the title).

Since the trailer has dropped on YouTube it’s amassed a whopping 18 million views and thousands have taken to the comments and admitted it left them on the edges of their seat.

“I’m a horror fan, I’ve literally seen it all (like most people). However the one thing, literally the one thing I CANNOT deal with is creepy smiles and unmoving, staring people. This film, if done well, could be truly excellent and horrifying,” one penned.

While a third commented: “I just threw my phone WHAT.”

“I can’t lie, the last scene actually made me punch the air as if she was right there in front of my face,” a fourth admitted.

“The first time I saw this trailer it was night, my room was dark, and I was listening to this on headphones, the music scared me and the visuals in this trailer spooked me, and then the last scene made me scream in my chair,” another added. “I haven’t felt this level of terror in quite a while for a movie, I am so excited for this now.”
