I knew less than nothing about this movie going in. I say less than nothing because for some reason, I thought it was a horror movie and not - what it was.
I'm not sure what it was. I think it was listed as a comedy, and it was funny in the best kind of way (characters do in character things that are funny to the audience but not necessarily to them), but it was also highly tragic and somewhat horrifying.
All the while, it was captivating.
Check out The Host, it's by the same director. Go into it thinking it's a horror movie (it even has a monster) and it's not.
It's really good. I've seen several of Bong Joon-ho's work and his movies are quite good.
Maybe that's why I thought Parasite was a horror movie. Some TV voice probably said it was a "follow up to The Host" but my brain heard sequel - or something.
I'll definitely check that out.
