From The Press Release
When she returns from her tropical bachelorette party getaway, a young woman begins to succumb to an insect bite in the palpably disturbing film Bite. Witness the skin-crawling chronicle of one woman’s truly terrifying descent into madness when the visceral body-horror feature Bite debuts in select U.S. theaters May 6th, 2016. Directed by Chad Archibald (The Drownsman), Bite had a sensational premiere at the 2015 Fantasia International Film Festival in Montreal, where it won an Audience Award, and has recently played at numerous top international genre film festivals.
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.
