And it’s “inspired by true events,” to boot. Chad Ferrin’s Parasites will be available on VOD January 24th; it received an excellent reception at a number of festivals, including HorrorHound, Shriekfest, STUFF MX, the New York City Horror Film Festival, Zinema Zombie Fest, and Fantasia International Film Festival. Dread Central called it “white-knuckled tension and action that holds its ground.” Here’s the trailer and the synopsis:
Genre vet Robert Miano (Donnie Brasco) headlines as Wilco, the leader of a band of bloodthirsty vagrants who rule the underpasses and alleyways of downtown LA. When he and his men come across a trio of lost college boys (centered around newcomer Sean Samuels), all hell breaks loose.
The industrial barbarianism of downtown Los Angeles is equal parts player and punisher in this survive-at-all-costs tale of a group of friends who get lost in the seedy streets where they encounter a crazed gang of homeless derelicts that captures and maims them one-by-one. One lucky man escapes on foot, naked and unarmed, with a pack of depraved transients in pursuit, staying only seconds ahead. Clinging to sanity and reduced to helpless prey, with only instinct to guide him, can he survive this coliseum of horror?
