With Breakthrough Entertainment and Black Fawn Films’ latest shocker, BITE, all set to premiere at this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival, the very first trailer has crawled onto the internet with a viral outbreak impending.
Further to the success of The Drownsman and Ejecta comes director Chad Archibald’s creature-feature/body-horror BITE. Penned by Jayme Laforest (Gods of Accident) and starring Elma Begovic, Annette Wozniak, Denise Yuen, Jordan Gray and Lawrene Denkers, Bite sees Casey (Begovic) – the bride to be – gets a seemingly harmless bite from an unknown insect whilst on her hen party holiday. 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.
Commenting on the film, Begovic said, “Working with Black Fawn Films has allowed me to be part of a scary, and at times sexy film, and director Chad Archibald truly gave me the opportunity to stand tall and proud behind my character.”
Whilst the film is all set to premiere at Fantasia it has also already been confirmed to screen at Film4 FrightFest in London and Fantasy Film Fest in Germany so there’s really no escaping the infection. Get ready for some seriously goopy, icky, sexy and dauntingly creepy horror and enjoy the first trailer for what looks all set to leave plenty of bite marks on the festival circuit and beyond:
