Halloween Movie Blog #24 Parasite Eve

Have you ever played a game that you said to yourself "What about the source material?" Well that is what you get with the 1997 movie parasite eve. This movie is the one that inspired three very good survival horror games...well two good ones.
Toshiaki Nagashima is a biologist who is doing major research on mitochondria. When his beautiful young wife is tragically involved in a car accident which leaves her brain dead, in desperation he steals her liver from her body in order to recieve the mitochondria from it to resurrect his wife from the dead. The killer mitochondria takes the form of his assistant who then uses the biologist for the host of a terrifying new species that is threatening to take over the world.

The doctor from this movie is the one that follows up in the game. It was a nice little japanese horror film that gives you good background in the game. I am not really that impressed by the CG effects or the "scares" but one can feel that the writing in this game is sound.
The setup for this story and then the follow up as the main character goes to the united states. I would suggest that you check it out.

Creep Factor - 6/10
Entertainment Value - 6/10
Scare Factor - 6/10
