The psychological thriller was first released in South Korea back in May 2019, and stars Song Kang-ho, Lee Sun-kyun, Cho Yeo-jeong, Choi Woo-shik and Park So-dam.
It follows the Kim family, who are struggling to make ends meet while living in a small basement apartment.
When one of them finds work with the much wealthier Park family as a tutor, the rest of the family decide to de-camp and gradually infiltrate the Park's home - a plan that soon unravels as things quickly take a dark turn.
The film was a huge hit during this year's awards season, having even scooped the highly coveted Best Picture accolade at the Academy Awards.

Along with picking up the Best Foreign Language Film and Best Original Screenplay Oscars, Bong Joon-ho also won himself the Best Director gong.
In his acceptance speech, the 50-year-old honoured the four other filmmakers nominated in the category - Sam Mendes, Todd Phillips, Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino - and said he wanted to 'split' the award with them.
He said: "After winning Best International Feature, I thought I was done for the day and was ready to relax.
"Thank you so much. When I was young and studying cinema, there was a saying that I carved deep into my heart, which is that 'the most personal is the most creative'.
"That quote is from our great Martin Scorsese. When I was in school, I studied Martin Scorsese's films. Just to be nominated was a huge honour. I never thought I would win.
"When people in the US were not familiar with my films, Quentin always put my films on his list. He's here, thank you so much. Quentin, I love you.
"And Todd and Sam, great directors that I admire. If the Academy allows, I would like to get a Texas chainsaw, split the award into five and share it with all of you. Thank you. I will drink until next morning, thank you."
Parasite will be added to Hulu on 8 April.
