Synopsis/Details: 

Death Swap is a cross between HEREDITARY, HELLRAISER and JUMANJI. The story is about a brooding teenager named DUSTIN who’s riddled with guilt and anxiety over the disappearance of his sister two years prior. Dustin heads to his family’s cabin with three friends RACHEL, MARCUS and SKYLER in an attempt to cope with the tragic events of his past. Upon their arrival, the gang discovers a mysterious board game engraved with voodoo symbols. When they play the game, the malevolent spirit MET KALFOU is summoned — an evil Bob Marley lookin’ Voodoo god who aims to prove that he is the true master of the crossroads, the passage way between the human and spirit realms. Skyler becomes possessed by Kalfou and attacks the teens, so Dustin kills her in self defense. Under Kalfou’s spell, Rachel tricks Marcus into rolling the dice, and he too becomes possessed. Marcus peels his face off and runs away into town where he embarks on a head-crushing kill spree. When Rachel is bit by one of Kalfou’s venomous snakes, Dustin spirits her away in a Jeep, but Kalfou causes him to crash the car. In a vivid nightmare, Kalfou explains that Dustin can trade Rachel for his dead sister AMANDA, who played the same game two years ago. Dustin must save his best friend and find a way to prevent the dark spirts from possessing his small town’s population in the epic grande finale, where he faces off with Kalfou and a horde of head-crushed corpses at the crossroads.
