Parasite is a low-budget monster film which utilizes the 3-D process to amplify its shock effects.

Set in 1992, tale has a skimpy sci-fi peg of scientist Dr Paul Dean (Robert Glaudini) attempting to neutralize a strain of parasite he has developed for the government. Morbid premise is that the large, worm-like parasite is in his abdomen growing while he studies another specimen, racing to somehow avert his own death and save the world from millions of offspring.

Pic’s raison d’etre is a set of frightening mechanical and sculpted monster makeup effects by Stan Winston. Convincing gore and sudden plunges at the camera are enhanced by Stereo Vision 3-D filming. Otherwise Parasite is lethargic between its terror scenes, making it a test of patience for all but the fanatical followers of horror cheapies.
