We Got This Covered
There’s something so evil about Bite. Archibald takes a common nuisance in our lives (a bug bite), and turns it into a homewrecking, murderous cycle of events covered in a thick, excreted mucus. Everything ties together, from Casey’s parental hesitation to her “slutty ways,” but even better than Laforest’s screenplay is a gleeful commitment to crazy, bug-eyed freakishness. Kudos to Archibald for imagining this swampy, apartment-tied nightmare, as he once again uses water as a connection to pure evil. It’s not the scariest, or the most serious horror movie out there, but B-Movie fans should certainly give Bite a chance.
