This week on The ALTER Tapes, Ky and Joe discuss director Javier Chavanel’s short ‘Smiles’ (2019), which uses a Get Out approach to create a comedy/horror of manners. We’re in love with these goopy practical FX, the hinted at generational backstory and how this short ruins Nick Jr from Nickelodeon.

Premise: Borja is about to meet his girlfriend’s parents.
