This was a lot more fun as a kid, but there is still many things to like about this film. It's about an alien experiment which is unleased on a campus by two nerds. The result is a parasite which makes zombies out of it's victims. It's very much like "Shivers" meets "Slither" meets '50s sci-fi. Once it gets going it's really entertaining, but getting to that point can be a little trying which is why I can't really give it a higher rating. Still if you are patient this is worthwhile and it does pay off, it's just not exactly scary in any particular way nor is it gory particularly. It's just a fun little play on the parasite zombie idea that should please most.
