Six singles take the plunge into the world of blind love, each matched with not one, but two potential suitors. But here’s the catch — they can only communicate through text messages and phone calls.

“Totally Killer”

Every October, we anticipate a slew of horror films, only to be let down by uninspiring plots and uninspired scares. However, this year, there’s hope with “Totally Killer”. This Blumhouse comedy-horror film takes us on a time-travel adventure with Jamie, played by Kiernan Shipka, as she tries to prevent a murderous spree in 1987.

Forced to navigate the unfamiliar and outrageous culture of the 1980s, Jamie teams up with her teen mum (Olivia Holt) to take down the killer once and for all before she’s stuck in the past forever.
