Synopsis:
Tiny creatures called "Parasites" have arrived on Earth with the sole purpose of taking over human bodies and preying on mankind. One such Parasite latches on to ordinary high school student, Shinichi Izumi. Fortunately, he is able to fight it off before it reaches his brain. But unfortunately, it is now stuck within his right hand. Shinichi cannot reveal his terrible secret to those around him, but a strange relationship develops between himself and the creature he calls "Migi". Before long, they begin to encounter other Parasites which launch savage attacks against them and endanger the life of his childhood friend, Satomi.
When Shinichi's beloved mother is killed and taken over by a Parasite, it becomes an all-out war between humanity and the Parasites. But nothing is black and white in this struggle. Why were the Parasites created? Are they here to cull our numbers? The planet needs to be preserved, but we also want to protect our loved ones. Amidst this conflict of values, Shinichi and Migi have no choice but to hurl themselves into the fight against the ever more complex attack of the Parasites.

Parasite pt 1 - Parasyte: Part 1 review by porky

Spoiler Alert
27/05/2018

Very Quirky, Original, Well made ,Great Effects ,Gorey and Funny.

I would say it was the Best Movie ive seen from Japan in a very long time. and certainly one of the Best Movies from Anywhere ive seen this year .

Definitely worth more than the one viewing . possibly even worth purchasing, its an unusual one and well worth looking out for Part 2 .

Worth a watch! - Parasyte: Part 1 review by HH

Spoiler Alert
15/10/2018

Very unusual film, although I would class it as a sci-fi comedy rather than a horror, but there is lots of gore if that's your thing. Japanese horrors don't usually appeal to me at all (including The Ring) so I wasn't sure about this film until I'd watched the first 25 mins, but I'm glad I stayed with it as I really enjoyed it. The special effects are great and the story is good. Recommended.
