A unique take on body-hopping horror is seen in LIFECHANGER, which sees disc release next month with plenty of special features. Read on for the complete info and the cover art.

Uncork’d Entertainment releases LIFECHANGER on Blu-ray and DVD March 12. Written and directed by Justin McConnell, it stars Lora Burke, Jack Foley, Elitsa Bako, Sam James White, Rachel Vanduzer and Steve Kasan with the voice of Bill Oberst Jr. The synopsis: “Drew has an identity problem. Every few days, 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, 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.” (See our review here.)
