Synopsis: Ashley goes to her new college while getting over the death of her mother. She meets some new people there including Binder ('Shane Dawson') while at a party and she learns about an urban legend of an online killer that has the nickname "Smiley" who can only be seen on the web and he apparently kills people after they type in "I did it for the lulz" three times. Soon after going to the party Ashley and her flatmate Proxy go online to test it out, with horrific results. She becomes paranoid and she starts to think she sees Smiley all over the place and feels that he may be chasing her, but how can that be if he is not real? Have they somehow released him from the internet?

[ music playing ]

[ crickets chirping ]

[ screams ]

[ sarcastic laughter ]

I had to get

your attention somehow.

It's not funny.

Who you texting anyway,

your boyfriend?

Just work stuff.



You know, someday,

you're gonna have

to get a job, too.

Nah. I'll just

get married.


[ giggles ]

Mare, come on.

No chatting.

Say goodbye to your friend.

He's not my friend.

I don't even know him.

[ giggles ]

Oh, no.

Is this that site

Where it just chooses

who you talk with?

Yeah, hideandgochat.

Yeah, you really

shouldn't be on this site.

It's for people

that do gross things

to other people.

People do other things.

Yeah, like what?

I don't know.

Be silly.

Make friends

all over the world.

You know,

you can even meet

a cute guy.

Heh. Really?

People use this

to find dates?

Yeah, a lot

of guys do it.


Some of them even do it

with their pants off.

Okay, see, that's why you

shouldn't be on this site.

It's way too sketch.


I'm serious, though, mare.

You really

Shouldn't put yourself

out there like that.

What? Like someone's

gonna go smiley on me.


You know,

the urban legend,


No. Who's that?

You start a video chat

with somebody

Who you don't even know,

And you type in

"I did for the lulz"

three times.

And then

this guy with a knife

appears behind them.

And what?

They die.

Why do they

call him smiley?

Because he stitched

his eyes shut

And carved a smile

onto his face.

[ laughing ]


You need to stop

being creepy right now.

But it's fun!

That doesn't

even make sense,

'cause how can

one person, smiley,

Just show up behind people

all over the internet?

You'd be surprised.

I think that's

Just--[ screams ]


What's crazy, daddy?

That you're still up. Go.

Go brush your teeth.

Go to bed, you,

before I get you.

I'm sorry

that I was late.

Um, would

a check be okay?

[ woman singing opera ]

[ opera music fades ]



[ opera music resumes ]

[ screaming ]

Wow. It's big.


Sure you're

gonna be okay here?


You can still

stay at the college

If you like.



Got everything

you need?

I think so.

Need some money?

Dad, you give me

plenty as it is.

I know, but I just want to

make sure that you're okay.

I promise, I'm fine.

I know.

But if you need

another year at home--

It won't be

like last time.

I'm ready

for this now.

Yeah, I know.

Look at you,

all grown-up.

You're sure you don't

want to be closer

to your classes?

Daddy, campus is

literally a block away.

You don't have

to worry so much.

Well, I'm a father.

I--it's part of my job.



We're both

gonna be okay.



We got this.

I love you.

I love you back.

[ both laugh ]

Get in there.

Text me if you

need anything!

I think I'll just call.

Probably a good idea.

[ laughs ]

Proxy, this house

is so nice.

Thanks for picking me.


Hey, I was just psyched

to meet someone normal

When my roommate bailed.

You know, it's weird.

There's so much online,

I kind of feel like

I already know you.

It's just so cool

that your parents

Bought this house

for you.

Um, my parents

bought it four years ago,

And they can't sell it,

so might as well

Have your daughter

live in it instead of

paying dorm fees, I guess.

Yeah, I really didn't

want to live in a dorm.

Yeah, they're small.

They're gross.

Dorm parties suck.

Speaking of which,

Um, I have a party

to get to.

Well, it's actually

kind of more of like

a little get-together.

Hey, I mean, you wouldn't--

You wouldn't want
