Storyline

Three college students get lost in the seedy streets where they encounter a crazed gang of homeless derelicts that seizes them and one-by-one, horrifically kills all but one man. The surviving man escapes on foot, naked and unarmed, with a pack of depraved transients in pursuit, and only seconds away from capture.

See this provocative motion picture!
21 February 2017 | by TimothyHalpinSee all my reviews

PARASITES has been bullied upon and unfairly tarnished by some of the reviews here. Seems to me if a picture was so bad as described therein, it would not generate any review at all; but that is not the case. Quite the contrary, PARASITES has had some extraordinary positive things said about it worldwide and PARASITES is at least an unforgettable and thought provoking story, whether you are open for it or not. It saddens me some so-called "reviewers" would go to the extreme measure of spoiling the films ending, for whatever reason, probably out of spite that the film actually got under their skin and bothered them; they do not know how to handle it, so they strike out like a spoiled child woken from a nap. Real adult viewers will be enriched by it all and be able to digest it for what it is, a bold, brave and perhaps true piece of great low-budget American film making by a promising director.
