Dating Apps Get Deadly in Other Halves; Available on VOD Next Month


Dating apps are already pretty damn creepy so the idea of a horror film based around the subject sounds pretty damn nifty. Other Halves (review) comes to VOD next month so read on for details.

From the Press Release:
In less than one month, Other Halves, the horror film about a killer dating app, will be streaming to laptops, cellphones, and internet-connected TVs around the world, starting October 4th. Viewers should beware; just look at what happens to Devon (played by Lauren Lakis) when she uses the app:

Other Halves stars Lauren Lakis and Mercedes Manning as programmers who develop a revolutionary new dating app called Other Halves. On the night before the app is set to launch, they discover it causes strange side effects: Users lose all self-control, becoming amoral, lascivious, violent, evil. They consider shutting the app down, but… Evil is profitable.

Watch the brand new trailer:


After a successful circuit of horror festivals, including Other Worlds Austin, Another Hole in the Head, and ZedFest (where it won Best Micro-Budget Feature), Other Halves will now be terrifying general audiences.

Shot on location at a real tech startup, the filmmakers sought authenticity in their depiction of coders in San Francisco. The writers, Matthew T. Price and Kelly Morr, consulted with actual programmers to ensure the dialogue was as realistic as possible. They also chose to focus on a team of women creating an app, a field that is traditionally dominated by men. The tech industry has been making a conscious effort to foster gender equality, and the creators of Other Halves wanted to reflect that.

To hear more about the women of Other Halves, here’s a behind-the-scenes video featuring stars Lauren Lakis and Mercedes Manning and writer-producer Kelly Morr:


Other Halves, from One Oh One Radio Pictures, is the feature film debut for writer/director Matthew T. Price and writer/producer Kelly Morr. The film is also produced by Curt Chatham and features Lianna Liew, Sam Schweikert, Melanie Friedrich, Megan Hui, and Carson Nicely.
