I have never heard of Growthuntil just now. After watching the trailer, which can be viewed after the jump, I was instantly reminded of the movie Slither and that one scene in Evolution where one of the alien bugs sneaks its way under Orlando Jones' skin, resulting in a near-miss involving the bug and Mr. Jones' genitals.

Directed by Gabriel Cowan, Growth "begins in 1989, when a breakthrough in advanced parasitic research on Kuttyhunk Island gives scientists a jump in human evolution, endowing subjects with heightened physical and mental strength. But the experiment went horribly wrong, producing a lethal parasite that mysteriously killed off three quarters of the island's population, with the survivors fleeing for their lives. Twenty years later, Jamie Akerman, who lost her mother in the outbreak, returns with her boyfriend, step-brother, and best friend to sell the family property. Once there, they uncover the key to Jamie's disturbing past and the horrifying secrets long suppressed by the town's leader Larkin. When the past seems to be finally buried, a new strain of parasite emerges and threatens the island once again. They can slither into – or out of – any orifice in the human body. The final step in evolution has begun..."
