Two People Reportedly Passed Out Watching BITE - See The Trailer Now
Bite unquestionably looks like a low budget riff on The Fly, but that doesn't mean it can't be an effective, visceral piece of filmmaking on its own.
At the Fantasia International Film Festival earlier this month, the movie earned a bunch of publicity because two people reportedly fainted while watching it, while another threw up (in the barf bags that were handed out to audience members before the screening), and yet another fell and hit his head. This is the kind of thing that seems like it may be drummed up by plants in the crowd solely to generate pieces like this one, and if that's the case, then well done, you got me. But if those reactions to the film were real and natural, then Bite may be something worth checking out for those of you who are looking for the next potential cult horror movie to support. As far as I can tell, there's no word on an official release date yet.
While on her bachelorette party getaway, Casey, the bride to be, gets a seemingly harmless bite from an unknown insect. After returning home with cold feet, Casey tries to call off her wedding but before she's able to, she starts exhibiting insect like traits. Between her physical transformation and her wedding anxiety, Casey succumbs to her new instincts and begins creating a hive that not only houses her translucent eggs, but feeds on the flesh of others. As her transformation becomes complete, Casey discovers that everything can change with a single bite.
