Parasite (1982) Typical 80s 3-D movie where the Ds stand for drab, dated, and downright dumb. Could also stand for Demi Moore, who had to start somewhere. TIL: C.S. Lewis described evil not as the opposite of good, but as spoiled goodness, a parasite living off the real thing.

And finally, a couple of items of interests. Universal has announced plans to release their Complete 30-Film Classic Monsters Blu-ray Collection on August 28. Over 46 hours of monster movies spanning 25 years, including the original Spanish version of Dracula which was filmed simultaneously with the Lugosi classic. The price tag is a steep $150, but will probably go on sale at some point.

Meanwhile, Shudder has released a trailer for The Last Drive-In, a 24 hour marathon of 13 horror films hosted by the one and only Joe Bob Briggs. Tune in July 13th for what will likely be the last chance to see Joe Bob do his spiel.
