We seem to be on a trend of technology / social media inspired horror and Other Halves definitely would fit in to that category. In a day and age when "there's an app for that" is the norm Other Halves is a film that will get you thinking about how we use technology as a means to interact with and bring people into our lives.
Other Halves, the horror film about a dating app with murderous consequences, released a brand new film poster on IMDB! The poster features actress Lauren Lakis (Hybrids, Gun Woman) naked, covered in streaks of blood, staring at her phone. Swiping the Other Halves dating app, perhaps?? Behind her are jumbled lines of red computer code, implying app induced carnage awaits.
In the film, Lakis plays Other Halves CEO Devon Reid who, according to her bio on the app’s webpage (www.OtherHalv.es), likes “popsicles and unicorns,” foreshadowing a love of sharp objects?
Other Halves stars Mercedes Manning (Strictly Sexual, Zipper) and Lakis 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...
The Red-Band Trailer recently debuted to much acclaim. Two previous teasers gave us a clever glimpse of the evil properties of the app, the first disguised as a “Start-Up Investor Pitch” and the second teaser announcing the “Public Beta” of the revolutionary dating app. “Other Halves” will make you think twice before you swipe right.
Other Halves, from One Oh One Radio Pictures, is the feature film debut for director and co-writer Matthew T. Price, and co-writer Kelly Morr.
