Storyline

After winning 50 million dollars in the lottery, Matt Walker thought that he'd found the perfect woman one evening when he met Karen Bristol...she was smart, gorgeous and wanted him for his body...only trouble was that's all she wanted from him. Upon waking the next morning Matt discovers that his mind has some how be transferred into Karen's body...and that the being now in his body explains that he has lived throughout the centuries moving from body to body whenever the mood strikes him. Now, forced out onto the street, the new 'Karen' discovers that she is penniless and wanted by the police. In desperation she turns to her lecherous best friend Brian and ex girl friend Lisa, but unless he can find a way back to his own body, Matt will have to live the rest of his life as a true victim of Identity Theft. Written by James Ward

Great
17 December 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Obviously a low budget film, but this allows it to explore a story a mainstream wouldn't dare consider. Usually these body swap type films involve some weak comedy gimmick and a happy ending - making them predictable and boring. Luckily this film is not bound by such constraints.

Hollywood take note and look over here for some inspiration!

This also took just 7 days to reach the UK in the Christmas post which was great.

This is the first film I have felt the need to make an account on IMDb for and rave about, so that should tell you something. Keep up the good work guys!
