Uncork’d Entertainment will be releasing the upcoming body horror movie Lifechanger on January 1, the first day of 2019.
Drew is a shapeshifter….but an involuntary one. If he doesn’t take on another form every few days, he’ll drop dead. As bad as it is to be Drew, it’s even worse for everyone who isn’t Drew: if he picks you to change into, he’ll steal your identity, memories and everything, and YOU’LL drop dead. It gets worse……there’s this girl.
It’s hard to make a good impression on your crush object when you literally become a different person each week, and you’re also kind of a serial murderer. Can Drew and Julia work things out, or are these kinds of differences irreconcilable?
LIFECHANGER was written and directed by Justin McConnell, and produced by Avi Federgreen and McConnell. It stars Lora Burke, Jack Foley, Elitsa Bako, Sam James White, Steve Kasan, Rachel Vanduzer, Peter Higginson, Adam Buller, Brian Quintero, Mark Rainmaker, Ry Barrett, Michelle D’Allesseandro Hatt, Uche Ama, Daniel Faraldo, and Francesco Filice.
Drew has an identity problem. Every few days, has to shape-shift, or face a painful death. He has to find someone and make a copy. He takes everything: their looks, memories, hopes, and dreams. Their entire life. He becomes them, and they die horribly. Enter Julia, the object of Drew’s affection. How can he make things right when he’s never the same person for very long? How do you gain back trust when who you are keeps changing? Part psychological thriller, part body horror, Lifechanger follows one shape-shifters’ twisted quest to repair the damage he’s caused, while leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.
