A poor mouse is persecuted by a gang of nihilistic cats and gets treated to vicious experiments. A mystic plague is also thrown into the plot in this twisted, yet amusing, animated short. British director Ben Hibon’s distinctive and raw stale bares traces of such classic as Fritz the Cat. A political undertone is also notable beneath the surface. Parasite is like those flash animations that have become so popular on the Internet, such as Joe Cartoon – totally insane.David Hagen
