DVD review: Parasitic (2012)
A group of friends are trapped inside a nightclub with an unseen terror. Unable to escape, one at a time they fall victim to the ravenous, bloodthirsty beast. The club-goers must fight to survive and destroy the creature before it is let loose into the world. Parasitic is written and directed by Tim Martin. The acting is so embarrassingly bad that it's painful to watch it, the dialogue is ridiculous and there are several characters that are so unlikable and annoying that I sat and wished that they would disappear quickly and hopefully die in a gruesomely graphic fashion. The camerawork and editing is mediocre. Parasitic isn´t remotely scary instead it´s boring and tedious (the bad acting and annoying characters doesn´t help) to sit through. The soundtrack is bad. There´s no gore and the best creature fx appears to late to have any impact. There´s topless nudity courtesy of Bianca Holland and there is an excruciatingly bad sexscene.
This review is based upon the region 1 DVD release from Phase 4 Films.
Rating: 0 out of 7. I can't think of anything positive to say. It´s a horrible, inept creature feature that leaves a lot to be desired. I actually started to contemplate if I should turn the damn flick off or not but I decided to watch it all. Spend your time and hardearned money on something else than this excruciatingly bad flick. I want my 79 minutes back!
