Review of: Parashites

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 really enjoyed this screenplay, it was inventive and fun. It's a great concept. I can't really think of an animated/live action film along these lines. It was fun, inventive, touching and sweet. I did have some confusion throughout the screenplay though over the fact there were none of the standard transitions. I would have killed for at CUT TO:, FADE IN: or FADE OUT:... read
