Smile, directed by Parker Finn and starring Sosie Bacon, is now in theaters and is already receiving praise from horror fans after its world premiere at Fantastic Fest. Not only is the movie featured in the next issue of Fango, on newsstands on October 11, but the score by Cristobal Tapia de Veer is getting the vinyl treatment from Mondo.

"Smile is graced with a unique and terrifying score by Chilean-Canadian composer Cristobal Tapia de Veer (Utopia, The Girl With All The Gifts), who brings his acclaimed mysterious and otherworldly style to provide a fearsome musical underscore for Rose's frightening journey. The score is full of dreamy synth tones and ethereal drones, lulling you into a false sense of security before unleashing a wall of piercing metallic tones stabbing your eardrums and psyche. Vibrating and rumbling whalesong-like colours make you feel that you're being dragged onto a new plane of existence, and all you can do is ride the wave - and remember to SMILE." -Charlie Brigden
