Trailer Talk: Other Halves, about a strange dating app that causes strange and evil side effects.

April 2, 2015


Other Halves features Mercedes Manning (Strictly Sexual, Zipper) and Lauren Lakis (Hybrids, Gun Woman) as the developers of 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…and evil. They consider shutting the app down, but…EVIL IS PROFITABLE.


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


The first teaser video features Jasmine (Mercedes Manning) recording a pitch video for the Other Halves dating app.  Right away I felt like Manning captured a very candid, very real character.  The acting seems good.   The very honest budget is clearly low, but that doesn’t hinder our ability to see that there is something strange going on with this app…as if the app itself was possessed.  Here’s the first teaser:


In the next teaser video (below) we see a commercial for the Other Halves app featuring Devon (Lauren Lakis).  During her presentation, again, something sort of goes wrong with the app and it seems that another world with another version of her character is being tapped…a more evil and seductive version.  Here’s the second teaser:

I’m curious to see this film and I’m not scared by the low budget.  As long as filmmakers don’t try to do that which cannot be done effects-wise with their budget, things tend to go fine for good directors working on good scripts with capable actors.

This one looks like it has the potential to get pretty raunchy.  That doesn’t mean it can’t be good, though.  I’ll certainly give it a chance when it comes out.  I hope you will, too.
