I first saw Parasite when I was roughly 7 or 8 years old. For years all I could recall was a catfish like monster and the film's climax. After revisiting it, I find it still pretty enjoyable. It's your standard monster movie with some interesting elements. The post-apocalyptic setting is unique and promising. The film's major highlights are effects by Stan Winston. Demi Moore stars in her first major role as well. It was directed by the legendary Charles Band, who does a pretty solid job in the director's chair. A sequel had been planned but never materialized. The score was composed by Richard Band.
REVIEW: Parasite seems to be beaten and attacked unfavorably quite often which I find quite sad. Sure it's a b-movie but it's actually not that bad. The effects are stellar and the story is fairly interesting. The dialogue isn't too bad and the acting pretty good for the most part.Read more ›
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 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
