Netflix continues adding to its ever-expanding K-horror library (Korean Horror). The latest addition is the series “Parasyte: The Grey,” based on the acclaimed manga “Patasyte” by Hitoshi Iwaaki.

A Legacy of Horror

Originally published from 1989 to 1994, the manga garnered widespread praise for its masterful blend of complex characters, philosophical themes, and a unique combination of body horror and dark humor. This is not the first time the manga has been adapted; it has previously been transformed into a popular TV anime and two live-action films.

Drawing inspiration from the source material, “Parasyte: The Grey” introduces a new narrative and characters. The series follows a group called “Team Grey,” a clandestine organization dedicated to fighting a terrifying threat – parasitic creatures.

At the Helm

At the helm of this new adaptation is director Yeon Sang-ho, renowned for crafting captivating and intense horror narratives. You have probably seen his series “Hellbound” and the global phenomenon Train to Busan. He was behind both, proving his talent for transforming stories into live adaptations.

“In my twenties, ‘Parasyte’ was a cornerstone for those of us passionate about manga and animation. Having the opportunity to build upon it and create something new is not only a great honor but also a dream come true from my younger years.” Sang-ho has stated.

A Must Watch

With its fresh narrative and talented cast, “Parasyte: The Grey” promises to be a thrilling and thought-provoking experience for sci-fi and horror fans. Netflix will unleash the new series on April 5th, 2024.

Whether you are a long-time fan of K-horror or you are just now discovering it, Netflix has a massive library you should check out. From Sang-ho’s killer series “Hellbound” to the hit series “Squid Game” and “Gyeongseong Creature,” Netflix does K-Horror right.
