You’ll probably remember how much we loved Chad Archibald’s (The Drownsman, Ejecta) Bite when we caught it last year, so it makes us very happy to report that Shout! Factory also love it. They love it so damn much that they’ve secured the North American distribution rights and plan to release Bite theatrically this summer.
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.
Bite is an unashamedly icky and unforgettable horror flick and definitely something you should be excited to see if you love relentlessly gross body horror. It gets us itching just thinking about it!
Check out our 4.5* review of the film right here, and keep your eyes out for Bite when it is unleashed later this year.
