Directed by Luca Boni and Marco Ristori (House of Evil; Zombie Massacre 2: Reich of the Dead; Morning Star; Apocalypse Z; Eaters: Rise of the Dead). Produced by Alexia Melocchi and Mario Niccolò Messina. Executive produced by Valentina Cau.

The Extreme Video Snc-Lorebea Film co-production stars Michael Segál, Désirée Giorgetti, Aaron Stielstra, David White, Ottavia De Vivo and William Gambini.

“The problems here are multiple, first they show their monster right away. Second they go for CGI instead of something practical, because in low budgets, practical effects look good and grow old even better while CGI does exactly the opposite. Continuing with the bad, the plot is paper thin, not one likeable character, and the longest dialogue scenes I have ever witnessed.” 3/10, Patient 444

“Some decent effects, some poor effects. 2/3 of the cast are awful. The leading lady was written to be far too weak. Side plots went nowhere.” Platypus Chow

“The design of the creature is fairly neat looking, but the lousy CGI is just the final nail in the film’s coffin. I was hoping Dark Parasite would at least be an enjoyable diversion, but the absence of the alien for most of the film and the lack of any kind of action to make up for it very quickly turned it into a chore to sit through.” ★ Voices from the Balcony
