Storyline

An abandoned oil rig in the middle of the North Sea. Dr. Christine Hansen is charged with the task of testing an experimental cleaning fluid which could revolutionize the oil industry. Hired to carry out the tests is Jacob Rasmussen and his rough and ready crew of deconstruction engineers. But within hours one of them is missing under suspicious circumstances. Things go from bad to worse when environmental activist Mickey Hennessey and his hard-bitten associates seize control of the rig, taking everybody on board hostage. But very soon oil workers and environmentalists will be compelled to join forces in an evolutionary battle for survival. For a savage new life-form has made its home on the rig. And it is hungry.

Right, well it is obviously clear that director Andrew Prendergast is a fan of the original "Alien" movie, as most of the things shown in "Parasite" (aka "Hell's Mouth") is either a homage to "Alien" or a blatant rip off.

The story takes place on an oil rig in the middle of the ocean, thus leaving all people isolated and cut off from any immediate help. Where a new and alien life form has made its nest and is preying on the humans that inhabit the oil rig.

A monster or alien movie needs to have proper special effects, that either blow you away, dazzle you or make the creature and the atmosphere work well. "Parasite" didn't have that, and as such the movie was just another B-movie creature feature. The idea and concept of the creature was good, but it wasn't executed to a satisfactory end result.

The acting in "Parasite" was as to be expected. I can't really claim to remember a single actor or actress standing out from the rest of the bunch. But then again, such a movie is not going to be a Shakespearian thespian experience.

"Parasite" is definitely among the top ten of bad monster movies that I have had to sit through in my track record of watching movies. I didn't even manage to watch it to the end, as I had to give up about halfway through out of sheer boredom and a lack of entertainment.

As such, then I am rating "Parasite" a meager one out of ten stars. I am sure that there is an audience out there somewhere for a movie such as this. I just wasn't in that particular target audience.
