Okay can I start by saying this was WILD!!! And way better than I thought it’d be (I thought the premise sounded interesting but
d a m n… I was not prepared for how tense and exciting this one is!)

A low budget thriller film with an fresh premise, Bad Match is suspenseful, modern and twisted – a more than adequate choice for some tense viewing that’s sure to have you on the edge of your seat.

Bad Match follows the life of internet playboy Harris (Jack Cutmore-Scott) – an online dating addict who hooks up with as many girls as he can.

A one-night-stand-gone-wrong story, Harris gets involved with clingy girl Riley (Lili Simmons) and before long his life is spiralling out of control.

A cleverly shot, written and directed film, Bad Match is thrilling from the opening credits to the end sequence.

With an increasingly large number of people using online dating sites to meet their significant others, Bad Match is modern and relevant – and should appeal to a wide audience.

It’s dark and mysterious and oddly relatable at points (I can’t be the only one who limits the age range and distance on social media to find certain people…),Bad Match is enough to make you ditch your online dating profiles and start up a conversation with a stranger in a coffee shop…maybe…er probably not…erm where’s my phone?
