Can’t get enough body horror? Can’t get enough Barbara Crampton? Don’t sweat it, we’re all in a similar boat… that we wish Barbara was in as well.
Okay, I’m getting side-tracked. Here’s what’s important: Norbert Keil is directing a super promising body horror flick with a handful of neophytes along with seasoned veterans, and it looks absolutely awesome!
The movie is making the festival rounds now, so we don’t know precisely when we’ll see the picture hit discs or VOD, but it’s definitely a movie to keep an out for.
Dig on the trailer directly below:
Here’s some valuable 411 from the official press release:
Following its World premiere at Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival where it received a Melies D’Argent nomination for Best European Fantasy Film, German director Norbert Keil’s neo-noir body-horror REPLACE will receive its North American premiere in the Nightfall section of LA Film Festival.Co-written by genre icon Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devils) and starring Rebecca Forsythe (daughter of William Forsythe) and Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), REPLACE is a Bathoryesque tale of a beautiful young woman afflicted with a disease that rapidly ages her skin. After seeking the advice of a dermatologist she discovers she can replace her skin with that of other girls and aided by her lover, she abducts and kills a potential donor. But when the disease returns, she is forced to find more victims and soon becomes the target of a police investigation.
Young and Beautiful Kira is afflicted with a strange disease: her skin starts to age rapidly, dry out and crumble away. When she discovers that she can replace her own skin with somebody else’s, she has to choose: watch her own body wither and die – or give in to temptation – whatever the price.
