‘Smile’ Director Is More Concerned With Story Than Scary

Robin Weigert in Paramount Pictures Presents in Association with Paramount Players A Temple Hill Production “SMILE.”

While there are still a few of the old-school horror films around, it certainly seems like the genre has been evolving lately, with Jordan Peele’s films leading the way. Now, new director Parker Finn has joined the fright fray with Smile, a film that he says doesn’t go for the cheap thrills of slasher movies. Instead, Finn says his goal was to build a strong story first, then let the scary moments emerge naturally. (Click on the media bar below to hear Parker Finn)
