Shinichi and his “parasite­kick” Migi have to find out that all the endured hardship was but a mere taste of worse to come. Although PARASYTE: PART 2 is just as action­packed as the first offering, it also delves deeper into the philosophical implications of the manga it is based on, walking the thin line between bloody thrill ride and sociopolitical satire.

Director Bio
Born in Nagano in 1964, Takashi YAMAZAKI began his film career as a special effects artist for commercials in the 1980s. In 2000 he was given the chance to direct his first feature film JUVENILE, based on his own script. The phenomenal success of ALWAYS – SUNSET ON THIRD STREET (2005 /NC '06) firmly established him as an expert for intelligent big budget productions.
