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.

An old handicapped man, Mr. Bariani, is at the complete mercy of his mean carer, Myriam. Taking advantage of his weaknesses, she is constantly bullying him and making his life miserable.
This movie is a little French gem that manages to be quite engaging, touching the subject of the (unfortunately) not so uncommon maltreatment of the elderly and those with reduced mobility.
