Techno Horror Film OTHER HALVES In Theaters Jan 8

Our friends at OTHER HALVES, the indie horror about a killer dating app, have told us that the film will be playing on the big screen starting on January 8th (Friday of this week). After a successful circuit of horror festivals, including Other Worlds Austin, ZedFest, and Another Hole in the Head, Other Halves will now be terrifying general audiences. The theatrical run begins in Grand Rapids, home town of director Matthew T. Price.

For showtimes and tickets, visit the film's website.

In the mean time, watch a new (NSFW) clip, featuring Lauren Lakis as Devon, one of the lead programmers:

OTHER HALVES, from One Oh One Radio Pictures, is the feature film debut for writer/director Matthew T. Price and writer/producer Kelly Morr. It stars Lauren Lakis (Hybrids, Dr Ken) and Mercedes Manning (Strictly Sexual, Zipper) 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.

The film is also produced by Curt Chatham, and features Lianna Liew (Truth Or Dare), Sam Schweikert (Hart of Dixie), and Melanie Friedrich (Positive: Some Doors Should Remain Closed), Megan Hui (The Gambler), and Carson Nicely (The Conan O’Brien Show).

OTHER HALVES won the Best Micro-Budget Feature award at ZedFest 2015. The Austin Chronicle calls it “part giallo, part techno-horror, part Cronenberg-style Jekyll and Hyde riff, part acerbic sex comedy, and a wry commentary about the addictive nature of technology.” Shock Till You Drop says it’s “a satirical and techno-savvy film laced with more than just a drizzle of Sci-Fi.” For a taste of what these reviewers mean, check out the NSFW red band trailer:
