Since the world premiere at the Fantasia International Film Festival, Parasites has made audiences and critics scream, earning rave reviews for being both terrifying and thought‑provoking. I loved it and you can see my review here on The Blood Shed! Parasites has gone on to screen at a number of festivals, including HorrorHound, Shriekfest, STUFF MX, the New York City Horror Film Festival, Zinema Zombie Fest and more. Rent or Buy Parasites on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video or on Vudu.
Genre vet Robert Miano (Donnie Brasco) headlines as Wilco, the leader of a band of bloodthirsty vagrants who rule the underpasses and alleyways of downtown LA. When he and his men come across a trio of lost college boys (centered around newcomer Sean Samuels), all hell breaks loose.
Veteran genre director Ferrin (Someone’s Knocking at the Door, Horse) presents one long night on Skid Row as a sadistic re-imagining of the true story of John Colter and his flight from the Blackfoot Indians. The industrial barbarism of downtown Los Angeles is equal parts player and punisher in this survive‑at‑all‑costs tale of a group of friends who get lost in the seedy streets where they encounter a crazed gang of homeless derelicts that captures and maims them one‑by‑one. One lucky man escapes on foot, naked and unarmed, with a pack of depraved transients in pursuit, staying only seconds ahead. Clinging to sanity and reduced to helpless prey, with only instinct to guide him, can he survive this coliseum of horror?
