The well-reviewed shapeshifter shocker LIFECHANGER now has a specific North American release date, and a new trailer and poster to go with it. Read on for all the goods.

Written and directed by Justin McConnell, LIFECHANGER will hit VOD January 1 from Uncork’d Entertainment. The film, which we reviewed here, 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, plus the voice of Bill Oberst Jr. The synopsis: “Drew has an identity problem. Every few days, he has to shapeshift, 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 [Burke], 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 shapeshifter’s twisted quest to repair the damage he’s caused, while leaving a trail of bodies in his wake.”
