Trailer for Chad Archibald’s Bite crawls online

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

Chad Archibald is building a very impressive filmography for himself, one which includes credits on several horror movies. He has directed horror (DESPERATE SOULS, THE DROWNSMAN) and produced it (ANTISOCIAL, PSYCHO WARD, SEPTIC MAN), and has more genre entries in store for us in the future.

His latest film as director is entitled BITE and it's currently making the festival rounds, with Film4 Frightfest being one of the events it's scheduled to be shown at.

Starring Elma Begovic, Annette Wozniak, Jordan Gray, Denise Yuen, and Lawrence Denkers, BITE has the following synopsis:

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.

Ahead of the movie's festival premiere, a trailer for BITE has been released online, and you can check it out below. It appears to be a dark, disturbing, disgusting take on a classic creature feature set-up, and looks quite promising to me. I'm not very familiar with Archibald's work, but now I'm thinking I should delve deeper into the movies on his résumé.
