Other Halves is the story of a team of programmers who create a new kind of dating app. Instead of having you fill out a form about your likes and dislikes, the app examines your internet history to pair you with someone similar.
Unfortunately, the app has some unforeseen side-effects. Users lose all self-control, becoming violent, lascivious, evil. The team considers shutting it down, but… evil is profitable.
Director Mathew T. Price, opened up about the core inspiration for the film;
The very genesis of Other Halves came from Stephen King’s formulation of the three basic horror monsters: the vampire (embodied by Dracula in the classic canon); the un-killable monster (Frankenstein’s monster, naturally); and the werewolf, or the monster-within (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde). Vampires have been done to death, and the un-killable monster has morphed in the last decade or so into the zombie horde, but it seemed to us that there hasn’t been a good Jekyll and Hyde story in a long, long time.
Other Halves stars Lauren Lakis (Hybrids, Gun Woman), Mercedes Manning (Strictly Sexual, Zipper) , along with 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 film was was directed by Matthew T. Price, written by Matthew T. Price & Kelly Morr, produced by Kelly Morr and Curt Chatham.
