Meet Elmer. He’s your local, friendly parasite with the ability to induce euphoric hallucinations in his hosts. But these LSD-like trips come with a hefty price tag. When young Brian comes under Elmer’s addictive spell, it’s not long before he finds himself scouring the city streets in search of his parasite’s preferred food source – brains!

An all time favourite! What's not to love about this film? It fits in that category of perfect 80's horror. The colours, the characters, Elmer!!!! Obviously connotations of drug abuse but as a non-drug taker, you don't need to have knowledge / experience of the stuff to enjoy this one.
watch it before it's gone, truly amazing!
Spectacular 80s B movie trash. I personally see an analogy to drug addiction, particularly heroin. Either way a good gory romp
