Format: DVD
This film inspired me. I think if I hit the lottery, I'm going to go into some gentleman's club, hire a bunch of girls and bouncers and make a movie. I would just wing it. No script.

Tim Martin, special effects man, wrote, directed, and played a bit part in this film. The dialouge was semi-hip low brow and I enjoyed it at times such as when the reporter described the meteor as a "fiery something." This meteor had some alien slime and makes a case not to eat raw fish out of the Atlantic Ocean. Our alien becomes a parasite (title plot spoiler).

The action takes place in a nightclub that has more band members than customers. When they clean up the place, Val (Bianca Holland) the manager, locks the place up tighter than a garment factory in the third world. At this point our parasite is free to travel from bad actor to bad actor. The highlight was when Amber played by Isle Gallagher, got infected. At this point she didn't have any more lines which improved the film's acting by a factor of 2. Blonds named Amber always confuse me.

There was zero character introduction. There were plenty of missed opportunities such as the fantasy sex scene could have been made inane. The guys could of had clever geek dialouge instead or being horn dogs. Truly a wasted effort.

Frequent F-bombs, sex, major silicon nudity (Bianca Holland)

Parasitic (Tim Martin, 2012)

After I watched the ridiculously bad Poker Run (q.v., elsewhere this ish), I thought I had pretty much hit the bottom of the barrel for the week's viewing. It turns out I couldn't have been more wrong, and the reason for that is Parasitic, a brutally bad attempt at a horror film whose average rating on IMDB right now is a woeful 2.0. If it had enough votes to appear in the IMDB Bottom 100, that would rank it somewhere between #11 and #31. If you're looking for a second opinion, head over to Rotten Tomatoes. There, it has the distinction of being one of only a handful of films whose audience rating is zero percent. (Note: these numbers were mined on Feb. 14, 2013.) If it helps you to gauge how entirely awful this movie is, other films with 2.0 ratings at IMDB include Glitter, Track of the Moon Beast, and House of the Dead. Even the legendarily awful Bill Cosby flick Leonard Part 6 has a 2.2 rating. Yes, it's that bad. Normally, when it comes to movies that have been uniformly savaged by the crowds at IMDB and/or RT, I will attempt to find some small facet of that movie worth defending. I've even tried to defend Manos: The Hands of Fate. (Come on, catfights!) But Parasitic is a movie so awful that I cannot find a single thing--not one minor acting performance, not one camera angle, not even a snippet of the soundtrack, that makes this dog anything less than one of the worst movies ever made.

Plot: A strip club has closed for the night, and the late-night crew are trying to get cashed out and go home. Problem is, owner Val (Bianca Holland in her first screen role), who's a control freak and insists on cashing everyone out, is nowhere to be found. See, she went to the restroom and was attacked, and infected, by some sort of space parasite.

Format: DVD
Every once in a while, you rent a straight-to-DVD horror flick, and get surprised with a decent movie. Parasitic, on the other hand, is so awful that I can't imagine how it even wound up on DVD in the first place.

Parasitic is the story of what happens when a group of night club co-workers are trapped in a building as they become infected by an alien organism. And while the story itself isn't very original, it may have actually been spun into a good movie, as opposed to the total train wreck that is Parasitic.

Tim Martin, the film's writer and director, has served on the special effects crew of over two dozen major movies. We're talking X-Men, Spider Man, Hellboy, AVP, Apocalypto. So it's hard to understand why someone who has been involved with so many blockbuster movies could be responsible for such an awful horror flick.

First off, the "acting" in Parasitic is so bad that it's painful to watch. 90% of the cast had never appeared in film or television before, and it shows. Virtually all of the cast is from the Tampa area, I can only imagine that they were friends of the director, and appeared in the movie without getting paid. The exception is Bianca Holland, who I actually recognized as a fairly established Hip Hop video model. Based on her appearance, it's also no surprise that less than 15 minutes pass before Bianca's character has removed her shirt and bra (because she wasn't feeling well).

The eye candy couldn't save this movie, though. The sound quality was horrible, and I was constantly reaching for the remote to adjust the volume. The lighting was bad, and the cinematography was equally dismal.

As if it couldn't have been any worse, there were the plot holes.

Absoulte waste of time. No redeeming quality whatsoever, bad acting, bad editing, sofcore porn used early into the film and often in a poor attampt to stimulate interest. The viewer would have to be brain dead for any of the films contant to be interesting. I wish I could give it ZERO stars.
