Afflicted with a dermatological disease that causes her skin to crumble away, young and beautiful Kira discovers she can replace it with the skin of other girls.

Accompanied by her lover she embarks on a murder spree so she can have a constant supply of donors.

It's too bad that the plot devolves into predictable sci-fi fare fairly early on, seemingly sealing its fate as a direct-to-VOD release.

Replace starts off shakily but soon settles in to its own groove. You've seen some bits of it before but it's got enough twists and turns to keep you interested until the end.

Replace is a bloody cautionary tale about both the human condition and the inevitable reach of science. See it before you're too old to appreciate its warning.

For those who dig on mystery-infused psychological thrillers, be sure to see Replace as soon as you can.

merging the tradition of Countess Elizabeth Báthory with a more modern quasi-vampiric quest for eternal youth, and tragically tracing the double standards in our differing attitudes to the ageing of men and women.

Kira's decaying skin [as] figurative and literal metaphor on aging and vanity is enough to build from. Adding an amnesia subplot [is] a clichéd excuse to hide secrets.
