Shapeshifters have long been an obsession of cultures around the world, werewolves in particular. There's just something about being able to become a more powerful version of something that has always appealed to fans. But what if a shapeshifter had to become someone new every few days, or risk dying?...
...That's the premise behind Lifechanger, the new horror film coming soon from Uncork'd Entertainment and Raven Banner. Written/directed by Justin McConnell, Lifechanger appears to take its cues from other body hopping films such as Fallen and The Hidden, but with a more dramatic, human twist.
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.
Lifechanger is produced by Avi Federgreen and McConnell. Executive producers include James Fler, Andrew Thomas Hunt, Keith Leopard, Michael Paszt, Pasha Patriki, and Marvin Waxman. Produced by 9 Light Entertainment in association with Federgreen Entertainment and Unstable Ground.
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, and Daniel Faraldo star.
Lifechanger changes your life when it hits VOD on January 1rst, 2019.
