Gruesome shapeshifter Drama
28 October 2018 | by PairicSee all my reviews

Lifechanger: A tale of a shapeshifter who takes on the identities and bodies of those whom he preys on, leaving behind the husks of their old bodies. one of his victims was a farmer and thus he has a handy place to dispose of the dessicated corpses. We see him assume many identities, a woman who has been reported missing has to kill her concerned husband and then take on the identity of a detective who arrives. He then preys on a dentist who in turn carries on the spree.

Things are not as they used be for this ageing body changer, now the bodies decay quicker so he has to find new victims more often. Using cocaine speeds up the process if he has to change fast, antibiotics slows down the decomposition. He has also fallen in love with a woman and visits her in many different guises at the same singles bar.

Pretty gruesome at times with stabbings by various instruments including a corkscrew, dismembering of bodies, burning of a house in an attempt to cover up evidence when a quick escape is necessary. A compelling new take on the Shape--shifter/Psychic Vampire genre is written, produced and directed by Justin McConnell. 8/10.
