Ok, so who has seen this movie? And is it really all that? I'd never heard of it before it swept the major Oscar categories last night.

I heard of it, but unfortunately I have not seen it. There was a "Parasite" out in theatres back in the late 70s or early 80s that was supposed to be in 3 D and really good, but I didn't get to see it due to that dreaded desease "Empty Wallet and Bank Account Syndrome." I would like to see both the original and the reboot.

Do you think the Korean one is a reboot? It won best original screenplay. Maybe the title is just a coincidence.

Good point. There have been a few movies that had the same title of older movies, but were totally different stories. "The Changeling" is one example. I have the classic 'haunted house' story that was out in theatres back in the early 80s. I have seen 'direct to dvd' movies that had the same title, but the story had nothing to do with the 80s flick what so ever.
