What if you woke up one day and found your skin had suddenly disintegrated into tiny dried-up flakes? Poof! Parts of your body have now been mummified. Scary stuff. Well, wouldn't you want to find a cure as quick as possible? Wouldn't you be willing to try just about anything to save your precious skin?
That nightmare scenario is at the heart of the new body horror "Replace," starring Rebecca Forsythe (We Are Your Friends) as a young woman who resorts to extreme measures when she discovers her body has been spoiled by a rare, bizarre skin-aging disease.
The indie film, which also stars horror icon Barbara Crampton as a mysterious medical researcher, is the feature directorial debut of German-born filmmaker Norbert Keil, who, strangely enough, co-wrote the screenplay with cult genre filmmaker and legendary madman Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil).
"Replace" doesn't have an official release date (our guesstimate is that a festival run could be lining up for 2017). In either case, the makers of the film have released a promo trailer online. Watch it above.
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.
