Bite Reviews

April 19, 2020
It is most definitely worth a watch but gorehounds beware: it doesn't shock as much as touted and it doesn't reinvent the bug movie wheel.

This isn't the new Fly because, let's face it, nothing is or ever will be, but it's an entertaining watch nonetheless and most likely the best body horror movie of the year.

The film is a creepy, gory, and gooey crowd-pleaser, and yes, I think you all can handle it.

This film is a whole lot of wasted potential because with just a little more polish on the story and acting it could have been incredibly subversive and frightening.

This is pure body horror, focusing on the vomit and pus and oozy emissions that accompany Casey's entomological alterations - but it is also an allegory of a young woman's full, monstrous conversion to marriage, maternity and hardcore homemaking.

If you want to see a classic scary monster movie and only have time for one, this is it.

Bite is one of the best indie horror films I've seen all year.
August 15, 2016
Bite is still a wholly ambitious affair and a tenacious effort from Chad Archibald, who proves he has a strong grasp of how to make an intelligent horror movie that often defies genre expectations.

"Bite" is a slimily well-made creature feature undercut by its near-constant divorce from logic.

an expertly rendered gross-out that never takes itself too seriously, although there are times when you wish it had taken itself a little more seriously

Pro tip, ladies: A pregnancy test that comes up positive might just mean you are incubating some exotic fish-bug nasties. Ask your doctor!

At its best, and it gets pretty good after a really rocky start, "Bite" is a clever gorefest with some creative twists and turns.
May 5, 2016
After an opening 10 minutes that promises something depressingly mediocre, the film takes a turn to the atmospheric and gruesome, and winds up being one of the year's more provocative shockers.
May 5, 2016
If you want a well-rounded horror film that has more going on than a serious ick factor, this one comes up a bit lacking.
May 5, 2016
Shame on anyone who falls for the hype.

It seems to exist merely to spoil your appetite.
May 4, 2016
Bite is rife with unfulfilled potential. Even if all you want is to be grossed out, it doesn't push the envelope far enough and lacks the originality and sense of fun that could've made it a cult favorite.
May 3, 2016
What Bite lacks in self-proclaimed grossness, it makes up for with weird, wacky creature antics worth a midnight watch.

Chad Archibald doesn't quite land Bite's transition over from claustrophobic character study into full-blown monster movie.
