After a really awkward opening sequence, one that, I think, tried to set up how a scientist named Paul Dean (Glaudini) accidentally infected himself with a parasitic organism and escaped from a secure facility, we see him driving around in a van, stopping at an abandoned work camp, encountered some violent, mutated types.Read more ›
Set in the future world of 1992, "Parasite" tells the story of the hapless Doctor Paul Dean. Dean worked for the merchants, or minions of ruthless corporations whose goal is to turn the population of the United States into slaves. The doctor, who wrote a book on parasites, created a vicious type of organism for the merchants. Why? Who knows, but in the course of his work Dean becomes infected with one of these grotesque organisms and runs away from the merchants in order to seek a cure before it kills him.Read more ›
I only know about this pile of dung because Exodus wrote a song about it a couple of years after its release, and because of that I've always kind of half-wanted to see it; I didn't know until I fired it up that it was the breeding ground of one of the eighties' hottest stars, Demi Moore. But neither my abiding love for Exodus (and especially the Pleasures of the Flesh album, from which "Parasite" hails) nor my respect for the eighties acting of Demi Moore could stop me from wanting to pick up the monitor and heave it out the window in order to stop myself from having to watch this monstrosity. And if I could afford a new monitor, I probably would have.
Parasite takes place in a post-war future where food and water are at a premium, but life is cheap. A rogue scientist, Paul Dean (The Princess Diaries' Paul Glaudini), has fled the lab where he worked to a small desert town. Most of the inhabitants are less than welcoming, but the owner of the last surviving bar in town (TV character actor Al Fann, who last appeared on the big screen in Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!) and a local lemon farmer (Moore) don't seem to have any problem with him. Those who do include a local gang, who'd be a biker gang if anyone had gas left, and the Merchants, the evil corporate overlords who run things in this country, and who have sent an agent (Gray Lady Down's James Davidson) to try and recapture the scientist. Because, you see, the scientist is not alone. (I'm pretty sure, given the title of the movie, it's not a great spoiler to tell you what's tagging along.)
Everything about this movie is so bad that really, watching a washed-out VHS transfer is the only way it makes sense to attempt to see this film these days.Read more ›

this is a good 3d movie and it deserves a 3d blu ray release. In that format this movie was quite good for a low budget film circa 1982. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Michael Dobey

I took my older kids to watch this when it first came out. It's only good in 3D and wide screen. Don't bother buying this until it comes out in 3D.Published on August 22, 2013 by David
