‘Parasyte The Grey’ Review: A gripping premise held back by pacing issues

Did you ever wonder what it would be like to share your body with an alien parasite? Netflix's new series, ‘Parasyte: The Grey,’ explores exactly this unsettling concept.

Netflix’s latest offering -- ‘Parasyte: The Grey’ -- takes viewers on a chilling ride through a world besieged by alien parasites. This Korean sci-fi horror, based on Hitoshi Iwaaki's manga, 'Parasyte', boasts a unique premise and a compelling central duo, but uneven pacing and underdeveloped side characters prevent it from reaching its full potential.

The series excels in its initial world-building. The arrival of the parasitic ‘Body Snatchers’ is unsettling, with the show opting for practical effects and body horror that effectively conveys the threat. We're introduced to Jeong Su-in (Jeon So-nee), an unassuming supermarket worker, who becomes an unlikely host when a parasite fails to take full control. This sets the stage for a fascinating dynamic: Su-in and the parasite, Heidi, co-exist in a constant struggle, forced to cooperate for survival. Their internal battles are a constant source of tension, with excellent performances by Jeon So-nee, who portrays Su-in's growing defiance, and the voice acting for the parasite, which perfectly captures its calculating intelligence.

Seol Kang-woo (Koo Kyo-han) is another standout. Driven by the disappearance of his sister, likely infected, he becomes a ruthless parasite hunter. The bond between him and Su-in is a slow burn, adding a layer of emotional complexity to the narrative.

However, ‘Parasyte: The Grey’ stumbles in its pacing. The initial episodes are gripping, but the middle section drags. The formation of ‘Team Grey’, a task force dedicated to handling the Body Snatchers, introduces a slew of characters who don't receive enough development, except for the character leading them - Choi Jung-kyung. Their backstories and motivations remain largely unexplored, making it difficult to connect with them. The series attempts to delve into the moral ambiguity of fighting a parasitic threat, but these explorations feel shallow due to a lack of character depth.

The pacing is rather erratic. The first episode starts with a promising burst of energy, drawing viewers into its world of mystery and peril. However, this momentum is quickly derailed as the narrative slumps, with episodes feeling sluggish and meandering. Characters wander aimlessly, plotlines lose their sense of urgency, and viewers are left wondering when the story will regain its footing.

The action sequences are another mixed bag. While some are well-choreographed and suspenseful, others fall flat due to shaky camerawork and editing choices. The reliance on CGI for the parasites is hit-or-miss, with some scenes achieving a convincingly grotesque effect, while others suffer from a slightly dated feel.

Despite its pacing issues, ‘Parasyte: The Grey’ manages to deliver moments of intrigue and tension, particularly during its more tightly paced segments. The dynamic between Jeong Su-in and the parasite coexisting within her offers a fascinating glimpse into the complexities of survival in a world overrun by hostile forces.

Visually, the series maintains a consistent level of quality, with atmospheric cinematography and striking special effects capturing the bleakness of its post-apocalyptic setting. The grotesque transformations of the parasitic creatures are rendered with chilling detail, heightening the sense of dread and unease that permeates the story. However, the visual flair alone cannot compensate for the narrative shortcomings that undermine the overall viewing experience.
