Neon has a new dark-comedy thriller on the way called “Parasite,” scheduled to release on October 11th. Directed by Joon-ho Bong, the movie stars Kang-ho Song, Sun-kyun Lee, and Yeo-jeong Jo, and hits theaters just in time for Halloween.
The studio released the trailer on social media on Wednesday morning, telling followers, “Act like you own the place.” Neon called the film a “pitch-black modern fairytale,” and fans of the genre can watch the video below. The story follows the wealthy Park Family and the poorer Kim Family. The two houses are brought together, and the Kims see a chance to increase their standings. The character Ki-woo decides that the Kim children should work for the Parks as a tutor and art therapist, in order to better integrate themselves with the wealthy Parks.
The studio added, “Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks.”
