AJ Briones’ Acclaimed Horror Short “THE SMILING MAN” Has Arrived!


Last year, FANGORIA reported on one of our favorite horror short films in recent memory, AJ Briones’ THE SMILING MAN, which packed more petrifying punch in seven short minutes than most horror films can in 90 minutes. And while the film has made the festival rounds (and, in fact, was even selected in the long-delayed FIOFF), Briones and Co. has finally unleashed the macabre short film on the world at large! Be sure to check out the fright flick in it’s entirety below, and you can follow Briones’ future work at the film’s official Facebook Page!
