Imposter President, 10 March 2016
Author: AaronCapenBanner from North America

Sydney Blackmer stars as U.S. presidential candidate William Lyons Selby who seems to be a shoo-in for the upcoming election, but unfortunately this makes him a target of a rogue, unnamed Asian country run by a dictator(played by Richard Loo) who has plans to conquer the States by proxy, as one of his top scientists has developed a serum that somehow makes the skin and features of a human face plastic, making it easily molded into anyone they choose, and they have selected their own candidate to be an impostor, but not if the Vice President(played by Philip Pine) can expose them publicly... Daring if far-fetched story is interesting but such lax security around Selby is astonishing!
