While walking home late one night, a man notices another man walking as well. Only this man has an eerie smile. What are his intentions?
“2AM: The Smiling Man” is a horror short based on redditor Blue_tidal’s story, originally posted on the subreddit r/LetsNotMeet in 2012. It grew quickly in popularity, and caught Michael Evan’s attention, who decided to make a horror short based on it. At first it may appear a little silly, but it does have a sinister vibe to it where you can easily imagine that if you were in this situation yourself, it would scare the crap out of you.
