As Canadian horror film fans, we have a strange affinity for body horror films, owing much of course to our forefather Mr Cronenberg. As such, there is a crop of young Canadian horror filmmakers out there that just love making us squirm uneasily in our seats as they put their characters through the genetic wringer.
Adding to that horrific chorus is filmmaker Chad Archibald (Antisocial, The Drownsman) and one of his latest films, Bite, which will have its World Premiere at Fantasia on July 29th in the Salle J.A de Sève.
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.
There is a new trailer to share with you along with a collection of stills. I tell you what, that dead stare from Casey (Elma Begovic) at the end of this trailer is enough for me. I'm creeped out already.
