Movie Info

Masayuki Ochiai makes his screen debut with this bio-horror flick about killer mitochondria threatening to dominate humanity from within, based on Sena Hideaki's best-selling book. The film opens with a traffic accident that renders the scientist Toshiaki Nagashima's (Hiroshi Mikami) wife, Kiyomi (Riona Hazuki), brain dead on the day of their first wedding anniversary. Grief-stricken, he vows to make her live again and steals her liver from her corpse. While examining the disembodied organ, a sticky goo attacks his assistant, Sachiko (Tomoko Nakajima), and suddenly Sachiko turns into Toshiaki's dead wife. Later, the scientist realizes that his dead wife is in fact a dastardly organization of sentient mitochondria bent on making a new species that will wipe out humanity. Will mankind's cytoplastic foe prevail? ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Parasite Eve


I was quite disappointed to see the lack of real horror in the film. More of a romantic science fiction than body horror. In comparison to the game, this is dull as a wet carrot. But nonetheless, there were a few interesting scientific information to be learnt, also the acting wasn't too bad. 2 hours of running time is a bit too long to be quite frank.

More of a weird love story than horror, and the melodrama felt completely out of place.
