Film Review: ‘Bad Match’

Film Review: ‘Bad Match’
It’s a sign of how little most movies channel contemporary experience that the manners and habits and attitudes of the age of Tinder have remained a relatively off-screen topic. This past January, the Sundance drama “Newness,” directed by Drake Doremus (it has yet to be released), was a designer soap opera that had a few telling observations to make about what it feels like to live your life in a digital meat market. As a movie, though, it didn’t quite take hold. The new pulp thriller “Bad Match” is darker, grimier, and more entertaining. Written and directed by David Chirchirillo, who co-wrote the scurrilous violent hipster comedy “Cheap Thrills” (2013), the movie is “Fatal Attraction” for the age of the revolving-door hook-up, and in its fevered low-budget way it’s just clever enough to do what it sets out to do. It gives toxic masculinity its just desserts.

'Bad Match': Film Review

David Chirchirillo, co-writer of 2014's vicious black comedy Cheap Thrills, turns his attention to online dating in Bad Match, the tale of a hookup gone very, very wrong. Blending contemporary concern about the dehumanizing effect of app-enabled sex with much older tropes, it isn't quite the crazy-spurned-woman exploitation flick it seems to be. Though it's no Fatal Attraction, the modest thriller should play well with younger viewers in its limited run.

Jack Cutmore-Scott plays Harris, a broadly drawn cad who sees nothing dickish about his habit of bedding as many women as possible and never contacting them again. When more...

Frightfest 2017: Bad Match Review: Dir. David Chirchirillo

Bad Match Review: The dangers of internet dating are revealed as womaniser Harris starts dating the slightly off-kilter Riley. Bad Match Review

In the wave of Friend Request, Unfriended, and Ratter, films that have all explored the horror of social media, there’s clearly a market for a film such as Bad Match. The film offers a new slant, one with a smaller body count, that analyses the modern dating arena, asking whether love can exist in this new climate.

In the last few years the world of dating has changed dramatically. Rather than going to bars and such to find potential suitors, many people have replaced this ritual with internet dating sites and apps. The most prevalent of those is of course Tinder, and it’s a Tinder-like app that causes all kind of chaos in Bad Match. Harris (Jack Cutmore-Scott) works hard at his job in marketing, but

Frightfest 2017: ’68 Kill’ Review

Stars: Matthew Gray Gubler, AnnaLynne McCord, Alisha Boe, Sheila Vand, Sam Eidson | Written and Directed by Trent Haaga

Seemingly inhabiting the same universe as Cheap Thrills, the film he co-wrote with David Chirchirillo, 68 Kill, Trent Haaga’s second feature as director (his first being Chop) is a similar deep-dive into the fringes of American society – an underbelly that walks the fine line between morality and depravity. A world where people will do anything for money. Or so it would seem.

Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak, the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord and her rather extreme mood swings. So when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan.

Frightfest 2017 Interview: David Chirchirillo talks ‘Bad Match’

Time for another Frightfest 2017 interview as our host Stuart Wright talks to writer/director David Chirchirillo, whose film Bad Match has its European Premiere at the festival on Friday 25th August.

An Internet-dating playboy’s life spirals out of control after meeting a woman online in a darkly funny, yet disturbing horror suspense thriller. A look at modern dating techniques and the way people use the Internet to inform and often needlessly complicate their lives. From director David Chirchirillo, the writer of Cheap Thrills, a postmodern Fatal Attraction for the Tinder Generation, which builds upon expectations, and then completely shatters them. No one is who they seem, nothing plays out the way one thinks it will, and by the shocking end, one is left questioning their own lives as a result.

The Horror Channel Frightfest takes place August 24th – 28th 2017 at both the Empire Cinema and Prince Charles Cinema in London’s Leicester Square.

17 films to catch at Horror Channel FrightFest 2017

Den Of Geek Aug 22, 2017

Horror Channel FrightFest takes place in London this weekend. Here's our pick of films to look out for...

Summer’s almost over and what better way to welcome in the spooky season than by hiding from the heat in a darkened room, with five days of wall-to-wall horror? Yep, it’s August Bank Holiday and that means the 18th annual London Horror Channel FrightFest is upon us. For some, this is a familiar pilgrimage. Veterans will be used to bloodshot eyes, numbness in the spine, a lack of nutrition and an acute anxiousness every time there’s a loud noise. For others, it may be their first visit and these are things to look forward to. Either way, FrightFest promises probably the biggest, purest, uncut dose of horror you can endure without going insane, complete with special guests, world premieres, live events and at least a couple of parties.
