Opening in select U.S. theaters and on VOD/digital Friday, May 6 from Scream Factory, BITE is the latest from Chad Archibald, director of EJECTA, THE DROWNSMAN and NEVERLOST. Written by Jayme LaForest, it won an Audience Award at Montreal’s Fantasia festival and stars Elma Begovic, Annette Wozniak, Jordan Gray, Lawrene Denkers, Denise Yuen, Tianna Nori and Caroline Palmer, with icky makeup FX by Jason Derushie. The synopsis: “While on her bachelorette party getaway, Casey [Begovic], 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.”
