Reports of Viewers Vomiting Just From Watching the Trailer
The upcoming horror movie, Bite, is so gruesome that early viewers have had extreme visceral reactions. Lots of movies make this claim but few live up to the hype. If you have your doubts, check out our list of movies that truly met the criteria of being so disturbing you only watch them once.
Then, come back and watch the trailer below…
I was like you once. Whenever I heard murmurs about some entertainment being so disgusting that audiences had extreme physical reactions, I chalked it up to machinations from the media hype cycle, in which I am now a cog. Then, in 2005, came word that people were fainting during Chuck Palahniuk’s live readings of his latest collection, Haunted. Scoffing at these stories as too-perfect publicity fabrications, I read the short story “Guts” on a subway ride from Queens to Manhattan that summer, and emerged in Penn Station a changed man, thoroughly rattled. I hadn’t fainted or thrown up, but only because once the urge to do both simultaneously enveloped me like a fog, I quit reading and tried to think about not being stuck on a tin caterpillar trying not to puke.
This preamble is all to say that when I hear the kind of hype that the movie Bite is currently generating, I’ve learned to respect and fear it as a real thing that might harm me.
Plot: 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.
So there you have it….Don’t say you weren’t warned:
