‘I think the whole thing was a money laundering operation’ – An interview with Bad Match director, David Chirchirillo

Featuring on last year’s FrightFest schedule, David Chirchirillo has taken on the world of internet dating and all its glorious possibilities with his debut horror film, Bad Match.

Exploring the potential for just how terribly things can go wrong when we live our lives online, Bad Match is a contemporary look at just how scary the internet can get when it seeps into the real world. Following Harris (Jack Cutmore-Scott), an internet playboy without a care in the world for how he treats people, we watch as his life spirals out of control from meeting up with the seductive Riley (Lili Simmons). I managed to get a hold of writer and director David Chirchirillo to talk about his inspiration behind the movie, his experience in the film industry, and most importantly – his own online dating experiences.

Daphne and Velma are getting their own live action film… fighting zombies?

Have you ever thought “Hey, I’d really like to see the women of the Scooby Doo star in a live action zombie movie”? No? Well luckily for you, Ashley Tisdale has.

That’s right, the ex-Disney star has utilised her own production company with sister Jennifer (aptly named Blondie Girl productions) to create the Scooby Doo spin off that no one knew they needed until hearing the ridiculous concept. And, with a team of Sarah Jeffery as Velma and Sarah Gilman as Daphne, the fever dream only gets better and better.
