Netflix is finally adding one of the most in-demand horror movies of the last decade

The seriously creepy film also has an a sequel in the works

One of the most in-demand horror movies of the last decade will be coming soon to Netflix's streaming library.

The popular streaming site is on a roll when it comes to adding new horror titles to its website, with options available for fans of psychological films, gore, demonic hauntings and good old slasher horror.

It seems like Netflix bosses are keen to capitalise on the genre, with the streaming platform now adding what critics described as 'one of the most creepiest movies of 2022' to its library.

Released back in 2022, Smile was a psychological horror film based off of Parker Finn's 2020 novel Laura Hasn't Slept.

The movie sees a psychiatrist's life unravel after an encounter with a patient which sees her haunted by a terrifying entity that is characterised by a unnerving smile.

Directed by Finn, Smile stars Sosie Bacon as cursed psychiatrist Rose Cotter alongside Caitlin Stasey, Kyle Gallner, Jessie T. Usher and Kal Penn.

Smile went on to do exceptionally well at box office, making a net profit of $101 million (£79.5 million) and even landing a spot on Deadline's 'Most valuable films of 2022' list - proving that people really do love being creeped out when they go to the cinema.

Critic reviews were also positive for Smile, with the movie receiving a fair score of 79 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

Responses highlighted the performance of Bacon as Rose, which critics calling her 'phenomenal' and 'charismatic' in the role.

And if you didn't get the chance to see it, then you'll be able to on 9 July as it lands on Netflix, as per What's on Netflix.

We won't spoil the ending for anyone who hasn't yet watched, however, Smile's creepy cliffhanger ending also sets up the upcoming sequel, which is expected to land in cinemas in October this year.

Picking up from where the original left off, with the terrifying smiley curse latching itself onto another unsuspecting victim.

This time around the curse is following singer Skye Riley (Naomi Scott), with the film likely to see Skye's mental state deteriorate in the same way that Rose's did in the first film.

Further plot details are yet to be revealed, however, Scott's co-star Lukas Gage recently revealed that the film is so gory that it caused him to throw up on set.

"It's so terrifying. It was the first time I've ever been on a set where I was genuinely afraid, and I actually got sick to my stomach in one take," he said during an interview on the The Jess Cagle Show.

"It was so gory and so disgusting," he went on to add, before revealing that vomited off camera after shooting one particularly gruesome scene.
