The included special features are a set of surprisingly boring “Gory Outtakes” and a Gag Reel both clock in at just barely over two minutes each. There’s also a commentary featuring Gallagher with cast members Shane Dawson and Roger Bart. The commentary is more entertaining than the movie, whodathunkit. There is also a trailer for the main feature, along with already available Arc Entertainment releases Greystone Park, Hell, and The Frozen (which appeared dead set on cramming as many horror movie rip offs as possible into 90 seconds). Another upcoming film called Riddle, starring Val Kilmer, is available on DVD February 19.
If you’re looking for a good ol’ horror fixing, I suppose you could do far worse. I’m not sure the weather was worth the trip for my friend who joined me to watch this. Just know there’s absolutely nothing in Smiley you didn’t see in the ’90s — and those movies did it far better.
