"Parasite is lethargic between its terror scenes, making it a test of patience for all but the fanatical followers of horror cheapies."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"About as horrifying as Miss Piggy covered in barbecue sauce."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"Parasite is one of the genre greats and somewhat of a classic, admittedly for all the wrong reasons."

"Uninspired actors intone a banal script, reduced by clumsy pacing to a minimum of suspense."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"This is the proverbial bottom-of-the-barrel; it really doesn't get much worse than this."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"This is a badly acted B movie without much flair for involving its audience."

"Makes Demi Moore's later crappy movies look like Casablanca."
