Parasite Wins Best Foreign Language Film at NYFF

Parasite has taken the horror movies market by surprise. Several media outlets are hailing it as the best horror movie ever made. While that could be hyperbole, the movie has won the award for the Best Foreign Language Movie at the New York Film Festival, giving it credibility like never before.

It’s heartening to see that horror movies are now coming to the mantle and taking a piece of the pie. Earlier, horror and superhero movies weren’t even on the radar of the organizations that organized these awards.
