Q: I only remember a minor scene from this movie

AllenI’m assuming it’s sci-fi horror, I’m pretty sure it surrounds alien/parasites. There’s a scene of a man in bed, and he’s talking to a parasite in his stomach. It moves, and he tries to calm/control it. I know at one point he says “Atta boy” but that’s all I can muster up.

Q: Manhwa in which the male lead goes the main character back in time?

Q: When are Rose Jars first properly introduced?

AncientSwordRageThe concept of how rose jars function (even if how they work is unknown) seemed integral to False Value, and I know they have been referenced at least once in a main novel, but I can't find a story reference.
