‘Sometimes beauty is the beast’

Lifeform is a 2019 science-fiction horror feature film written, produced and directed by Max Dementor [as Brian Schiavo] (The Shriven). The movie stars Peter Alexandrou, Virginia Logan and Joe Amato.


Hadrian Beckett, a molecular biologist working to bring his wife, Samantha, back from a brain dead state, creates transgenic super stem cells that are capable of repairing cellular damage.

The cells save Samantha’s life, but Hadrian and Sam discover that she is slowly being transformed into a creature of pure instinct, one that is able to alter the shape of its body at will. Hadrian must find a cure before her sense of identity is completely subsumed by the beast within her…


“While it’s a big overlong with some useless subplots and some rather underwhelming CGI, the fact that there’s still a lot to like elsewhere here is enough to raise it up enough to get above some of those detrimental issues. Give it a look if you’re a fan of these indie creature features or if the premise is intriguing…” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation
