A small town is beset by giant parasites. An "Alien" ripoff originally filmed in 3-D, during that technique's brief return in the early '80s. Bad films like this killed it both the first and second times. An unpardonable mess that comes off as a stinky sixth-grade film project.

The 3-D film, Parasite, came out in 1982, with a run time of 90 minutes. Parasite is about a guy named Paul Dean who created a parasite, kind of similar to a leach, which can grow to be huge and multiply. While trying to find a way to destroy a parasite that happens to be in his stomach, he also has to destroy the other parasite that got out in a small town. Will he be able to kill the parasite that’s inside him without killing himself? And will he be able to kill the parasite that’s on the run?
