This week on The ALTER Tapes, Jamie and Joe discuss Joanna Tsanis’ short ‘Smile‘ (no, not that Smile!) We’re talking depictions of depression and mental illness in horror, fantastic creature design and the three films that Jamie immediately connects to this short.

Premise: When a young woman struggles to smile, her depression becomes something truly monstrous.
