Parasite is lethargic between its terror scenes, making it a test of patience for all but the fanatical followers of horror cheapies.
Uninspired actors intone a banal script, reduced by clumsy pacing to a minimum of suspense.
This is a badly acted B movie without much flair for involving its audience.
This is the proverbial bottom-of-the-barrel; it really doesn't get much worse than this.
Parasite is one of the genre greats and somewhat of a classic, admittedly for all the wrong reasons.
