Last year, Charles Band's 1982 sci-fi horror flick Parasite received both a limited edition VHS release and graced the cover of Delirium Magazine #17, and we've now learned that the toothy monster movie is making its way to Blu-ray courtesy of Kino Lorber Studio Classics.
The release will feature an HD restoration from a 4K scan of the original camera negative, both 2-D and 3-D versions of the film, and a handful of new bonus features.
"In the future, cities are ravaged by atomic fallout and controlled by evil corporations that have developed a mutant pair of flesh-eating parasites. One is feeding inside the man who created it. The other has escaped. Now with the help of a young woman left orphaned in the wasteland (Demi Moore), a scientist (Robert Glaudini) on the run must destroy these horrific creatures before they can reproduce. But the more a parasite feeds, the bigger it becomes. And the more it grows, the hungrier and angrier it gets."
Released to theaters as "The First Futuristic Monster Movie in 3-D," this sick shocker co-stars rocker Cherie Currie (Foxes), drive-in goddess Cheryl ‘Rainbeaux’ Smith (Caged Heat) and Broadway legend Vivian Blaine (Guys and Dolls). The film also features juicy creature effects by Academy Award-winner Stan Winston (The Terminator, Aliens).
Parasite makes its way to Blu-ray on October 22nd!
