– USA, 2016


screen-shot-2017-02-14-at-17-57-29Think twice before you swipe is a 2016 American horror thriller feature film produced and directed by Chip Gubera (Song of the Dead; Academy of DoomMil Mascaras vs. the Aztec Mummy) from a screenplay co-written with Chelsea Andes for MuchoMuchoMucho Productions and Firefly Films.

The film stars Ben Kaplan (ADDicted, Wingman Inc), Morgan Carter, R.A. Mihailoff (Death House; SmotheredHatchet II), Jewel Shepard (The Return of the Living Dead) and Delious Kennedy.

At a time where online dating could prove fatal, Jack and Kristy decide they’re ready to meet in person.

Aiming for an adventurous first date, they plan a weekend getaway to the woodlands of rural Missouri. While discovering each other, they soon learn of the terrorizing horrors that the forest has in store…



“Biting her lip and gyrating in a perpetual state of orgasmic ecstasy, the uproarious Shepard is sexy, yucky, and all kinds of weird as she spits barbed double entendres and – yep – masturbates with a swanky silver spoon. And then feeds an unwitting Jack and Kristy mouthfuls of homemade casserole with it […] Suffice to say, subtle the film ain’t. But with a bawdy schlock pile-up like, that’s half the fun.” Matty Budrewicz, The Schlock Pit


“It actually wasn’t too gory until the Ice Pick Incident, but after that things got noticeably bloodier. Things quickly got crazier, too, but in a very fun way where I occasionally found myself rooting for a murderer. Even these days, when movies are often filled with antiheroes, that still feels a little strange sometimes. But it was a blast watching every character do their best to come out on top.” Blue Took, The Slaughtered Bird

“Overall, I was highly surprised by and completely satisfied by the film, even more so by the absurd ending. Not every day do you stumble upon an independent horror movie that shocks you like this! Although it’s low-budget, it has everything a horror fan needs and loves: a great story, awesome characters, blood, gore, and full on nudity – that’s always a plus, right?” Toru Danielle, Horror Geek Life


“The trouble is, I could handle this being a homage to Tobe Hooper’s masterpiece, but I couldn’t fathom if this was an actual piss take or a genuine attempt at being a scary film.  The atrocious acting doesn’t help either. Quite a few times I had to put a cushion over my face as I cringed with embarrassment  and the attempt by the makers to overcome this by filling the film with nudity still didn’t work…” Ross Hughes, Horror Cult Films

“This film isn’t about subverting preconceived ideas, it’s about obliterating them in a putrid concoction of sweat and blood.  There are twists within twists that are both hilarious and sickening, the best of which is how the viewer’s expectations are preyed upon, corrupting every possible B Movie cop out with gratuitous sequences of sexual mayhem.” Kyle Jonathan, The Movie Sleuth

” …the film seems to exist for the sole purpose of showing a number of violent murders, but even those are horribly edited and choreographed. Oftentimes, the film feels like a shot-on-video production from the early 2000s that was edited for television. The filmmakers try to salvage this by throwing in two twists during the final act — one of which isn’t really even a twist — but it’s too little, too late.” Blair Hoyle, Cinema Slasher

“The movie’s redeeming qualities were the over the top, overly sexualized, evil cabin keepers played by the before mentioned Mihailoff and Shepard. They’re straight out of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre family, over the top crazy. Of course it’s 2nd rate crazy but they do have whatever was going on with that spoon.” Jason Minton, Without Your Head


” …once things get nasty they indeed get nasty, this is a long way from PG-13 horror […] it has a good dose of blood and the kind of twisted sexuality you’d find in vintage Eurosleaze horror.” Jim Morazzini, Beneath the Underground

“A low-budget shouldn’t necessarily be a restraint for a slasher and it can actually benefit from it but in this case the movie is just a tad bit too cheap and amateur-like looking. Not just the camera-work but also the editing, the special effects, the sound-quality, the music, the acting. It’s all below average…” Frank Veenstra, Boba Fett1138


ITN Distribution released in the United States on DVD on March 7, 2017.
