Land of Smiles – Austria/Thailand/USA, 2016

‘To find the truth you must play along’

Land of Smiles is a 2016 American-Austrian-Thai horror film written and directed by Bradley Stryker (an actor in iZombie; Supernatural; The Lizzie Borden Chronicles). It stars Alexandra Turshen, Keenan Henson and Caitlin Stryker.

A young female backpacker is lured through the third world paradise of Thailand searching for her kidnapped best friend. Unknowingly, she becomes the object of a sociopath’s obsession…

The film is released in the UK on DVD by Gilt Edge Media on 1 May 2017.


“For a low budget movie it looks a million dollars, choc-full of dreamy vistas that really capture the best of Thailand. If only the rest of the movie matched its artistic perfection. A little harsh perhaps, but there’s a number of things about Land of Smiles that are desperately frustrating, with the guy in the clown mask being front and centre […] his speech is completely unintelligible.” Dave Wain, The Schlock Pit

Land of Smiles is a gorgeous movie to behold, both in its locale and the way it’s presented visually, but man is it frustrating in just about every other way. The plot, and especially its resolution, are not only silly, but we don’t even get an overabundance of gory kill scenes to make it all worthwhile. Not horrible, just not very good.” The Horror Club

  1. i don’t get it why they had to add a preacher’s voice talking in Tagalog when the setting is in Thailand. i rewinded the part when i heard the voice preaching in Tagalog. For those who made the movie, do not mistake Tagalog for Thai. Totally different & unrelatable to the movie. tsk.


  2. Smile, you’re in hellish camera😎😋😋😎
