Smile (2022, dir. Parker Finn)

A psychiatrist believes she is being targeted by a curse passed chain letter-style from person to person. Sombre and slightly overlong Ring-ish horror flick, which spends too much time conflating the lead character’s own issues with the external ooga-booga. Jumpscares aplenty, though, and a strong lead performance helps no end.

Here’s the trailer.
