Old but new again
Unfortunately, while reading Parashites I couldn't help thinking it was something I'd seen before. Yes, it is a new twist on a old horror genre but I didn't see it moving passed that point.

The characters were well written (especially Gary, whose character I enjoyed) and there were some interesting variations on the theme. But push comes to shove I found myself losing interest in the screenplay half way though.

Overall I think it was a good try and a good effort and look forward to reading more work from this writer to see what else he can do. Good writing for a first or second try.

I would have killed for at CUT TO:, FADE IN: or FADE OUT:... read

    (This review contains spoiler alerts!) I like this screenplay. The characters were real although Haley was a little on the annoying/tease side ( at least for my tastes). Paul was very well done. I like the fact he lost interest in life after his wife died and became a pain in the ass at work, but at the same time was in therapy. This shows he was/is aware of his condition... read
