Luke Bather - 3rd Nov 2016

Some relationships don't exactly turn out for the best, as Josh Thomas and Darcy Prendergast illustrate perfectly in this creature mini-feature for Millington.

It's a simple, common tale of girl meets boy, girl falls in love, boy turns out to be a hideous parasitic creature that fuses to her, impregnates her after a drug-fuelled night and causes terrible amounts of misery and bloodshed.

The video is hilarious and disgusting from the get-go and just when you think you know how it's gonna wrap-up, they serve you a gory curve ball. With some incredible prosthetics and VFX work, mixed in with strong, humourous storytelling, this video (unlike the parasite it follows) doesn't outstay its welcome.
