If you like wormy monsters, zombies, practical special effects, and hot babes in your horror movies then you’ll want to watch the trailer for the new creature feature Parasitic and see what happens when a nightclub gets infected by an infectious space parasite that turns its victims into zombies.
After a strange meteor destroys a communications satellite and crashes into Tampa Bay, a sickly looking fish finds itself the meal of a beautiful nightclub bartender named Val. Moments later, as the bar is closed and locked tight, the infected Val becomes ill and all Hell breaks loose. Hidden from the others, the parasite she has unknowingly eaten rapidly grows, bursting from her throat and becoming the puppet master for the chaos ahead. With no possible way to reach help or escape, the trapped club-goers must fight to survive and plan to destroy the creature before it is let loose into the world.
The ambitious low budget sci-fi horror is the creation of writer/director Timothy Martin, who has extensive experience with special makeup and creature effects from his work at Stan Winston Studio and Amalgamated Dynamics, Inc. That experience clearly pays off as you’re guaranteed to take notice of how high quality the practical make-up and prosthetic effects work is in this teaser trailer for Parasitic. Look for it on the festival circuit soon.
You can find more production stills from Parasitic at Undead Backbrain. Thanks to Avery Guerra for the tip.
