Bite

In Chad Archibald’s low-budget, low-inspiration slime-athon, a bride-to-be (Elma Begovic) heads to Costa Rica for a blackout bachelorette party and returns with more than just a hangover. A tropical-insect bite turns her into a female version of Jeff Goldblum in The Fly. There’s some nice gooey body-horror makeup F/X, but Bite doesn’t know what to do with the themes it raises (infidelity, betrayal). It seems to exist merely to spoil your appetite. C+
