Bite is a 2015 body horror film written and directed by Chad Archibald and starring Elma Begovic, Annette Wozniak, Denise Yuen, Jordan Gray, Lawrene Denkers, Barry Birnberg, Daniel Klimitz, Tianna Nori, and Caroline Palmer. It was produced by Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment. The plot is about a young woman who is bitten by a waterborne insect while in Costa Rica and suffers horrifying yet transformative consequences.
Casey (Elma Begovic) celebrates her bachelorette party with her friends Kirsten and Jill in Costa Rica. Casey gets bitten by an insect at one point during the trip, but is too preoccupied to take note, thinking of it as an ordinary bite. She is second guessing her impending wedding to her fiancé Jared Kennedy, and exasperated with Jared's mother, who happens to be Casey’s landlord. After returning home, her body mutates gradually, her senses get worse, she is no longer able to feed herself, and she is plagued by nightmares. When she wakes up one day, there are insect eggs in her apartment. Jared's mother invades Casey's apartment to angrily challenge her about her plans to marry her son, but Casey kills her by spitting acid. Her friend Kirsten is very worried and visits Casey, but Casey also kills her when Kirsten finds the body of Mrs. Kennedy and panics.
