Ancestor Parasite

‘Ancestor Parasite’ pictures an encounter with the mysterious origin of biomorphs in the sewage of London between eastend docklands & miry underbelly of Hollow Way ~

synpopsis:

An oriental acupuncturist samples the water in the derelict docklands. She senses a primordial parasitic organism living there. Her patient is subjected to body-fluids control techniques and manipulated to search the bottom of docklands canals. During the low-tide of Thames, he finds a monstrous slug from Far East in the riverbed. The patient feeds it with his orifices. Eventually, he traps the quirky creature in the canalisation connected to the underground river Hackney Brook, under a squatted building in North London. The slug is being tied to the pipes and fed to leeches. Soon, it becomes breeding in dark waters.

Meanwhile, an ancient squid, trapped in the body of a drooling girl, is subjected to another acupuncture therapy. She follows the patient into the sewage, where she joins the slug’s brood awaiting the acupuncturist to feed on their discharge ~
