I don’t know about you, but I hate these live action versions of the animated Disney classics. I will admit that Cinderella was beautiful, but I don’t think it needed to be made. Since it did well in theaters that means that Disney is going to make more of them. The next one in the series is Beauty and the Beast. Today, they released the first trailer for the film that comes out on March 17th and it’s not for me. I will admit it looks like a real beauty, but I am sure it will be a beast.
But I am impressed that they made a rose so gorgeous that anyone woman would marry a man who gave it to her. I know I would.
If you are like me, then you are sick of horror movies about Zombies, Vampires, haunted houses or items and possessions? Well Bite is a throwback to when horror movies were scary and CGI wasn’t used. In other words, you will be having nightmares for weeks after watching this film that is out now on VOD, OnDemand and playing in select theaters.
Cassey (Elma Begovic) and her two friends, Jill (Annette Wozniak) and (Denise Yuen), go to Costa Rica to celebrate her upcoming nuptials to Jared (Jordan Gray). While they are there, they meet some guys who tell them about this beautiful spot that tourists don’t know about. They convince the guys to tell them where it is, so that they go there and see it for themselves. As soon as they arrive, they play in the unique beautiful water. That is when Cassey’s life is changed by what seems to be an innocent bug bite.
When she gets home, she starts to feel sick but isn’t too worried. First, she pukes up a strange clear sticky substance. Then the wound won’t stop oozing a thick puss. Even her hearing starts to improve. Yet, she doesn’t do anything about it because it is just a bug bite. Even the clinic doesn’t seem worried and tells her to get some over the counter medicine. It’s just a bug bite, right?
But then, she can’t ignore it anymore. Not only is her skin starting to change, so is her apartment. It’s slowly turning into a hive for her and her eggs. That’s right, millions of eggs.
She doesn’t really understand how much of a transformation she has been through until her bitchy and controlling future mother in law comes to see her. When Cassey loses her temper, she spits an acid like substance onto her lover’s mom that dissolves her face. That incident changes her, but is it too late to save her?
One by one her friends and her fiance’ try to help her, but not all of them are going to make it out of there alive. Who will survive? You will just have to watch this petrifying movie to find out. Well as much as you can because your hands will be over your eyes for most of it.
Bite is paced out perfectly, not too fast and not too slow. Slow enough to creep you out, but fast enough so you don’t get bored. It is just like how the classics knew how to perfectly time out a film.
Another element that plays into the terrifying factor is that there is little to no CGI in it. You feel like you are watching her transform and not seeing a computer do it for us.
But it is the story that is the scariest factor of it all. No one thinks a bug bite will turn you into a bug, but what if it did? That is what this movie answers.
Even though I won’t be sleeping for a week after watching this, I can’t wait for them to come out with a sequel to this terrifying tale. Yes, wait until you see how they leave the door open for that possibility.
If you love to be frightened, but haven’t found a movie that can satisfy this need. Then you are going to want to watch Bite as soon as possible to cure what is missing from your life.
I don’t know about you, but I am so over Comic Book movies. They are the same thing, but with different characters in different color suits. It’s like how many times can you destroy the Earth, while a few people in their underwear try to save it.
These movies have for the most part been doing well in theaters, but X-Men: Apocalypse makes me think enough is enough. There is nothing new in it, so it is time to let Hulk Smash them all to smithereens.
Are you as over Comic Book movies as I am?
I love horror movies, but these days most of them aren’t that scary. That is all about to change next month with Bite. A young woman goes to Mexico for her Bachlorette party and comes back with a bug she just can’t get rid. Actually she gets bug bite that transforms her into a bug.
It’s like this is what The Fly should’ve been. Not that the I wasn’t afraid, very afraid of the Jeff Goldblum/Geena Davis horror film, but this seems to take it to a whole new level of terrifying.
At least that is the impression I got off of the trailer. Well, what I could watch of it without my hands over my eyes. I am not scaredy cat, but this scared the crap out of me.
If you are like me and can’t wait to see it, then you only have to wait a few more weeks. Bite will be available in select theaters, OnDemand and VOD on May 6th.
Personally, I despise The Purge movies and think their message is disgusting. But when I saw the title for the latest sequel, I thought that it might be even scarier than what we Yanks are going through this election year. I didn’t think that was possible, but I guess that it is.
Will I see the movie on July 4th, hell-to-the-no. Will you?
There is a Trolls movie coming on November 4th, but they don’t look like the sweet little dolls that we rubbed on their hair for good luck. They still have the long hair standing above their heads, but they don’t have those awwwdorable faces we love so much. I don’t know why, because that is what helps to make them so lovable.
Is that enough to turn me against seeing the movie? No, it looks like it will be very enjoyable. I will just wait until it is on Netflix.
Several sites have edited together a look back at the biggest movies from 2015, but only Toscano Bricks did it by using only Lego. Since I didn’t see a lot movies last year, I only caught the Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoiler (I still haven’t seen it, but everyone keeps spoiling that one key plot point for me) and the elevator scene from Fifty Shades of Grey. Which movies did you spot?
Even though, I haven’t seen most of those movies, the build up (get it) makes me want to see more of them. Seriously, how brilliant is this video? I thought it was pretty amazing what kids can do with Lego today, but this shows that even adults can create masterpieces with them too.
In 3 days, it will be 8 years since Cloverfield came out and on March 11th the much anticipated sequel that no one knew was coming is coming out. That’s right, 10 Cloverfield Lane will be stomping into theaters in less than 2 months. It’s hard to tell how good it will be from the teaser, but since it is a J.J. Abrams film you know it is going to be good.
On January 24th, get ready to rock with Sing Street. A movie about a 14 year old boy in Dublin during the ’80s trying to land his dream girl by forming a band. In return, he formed so much more in what looks like sweet movie that can be enjoyed over and over again.
What really stuck out for me in this trailer is how much one of the actors looks like a young John Cusack, did you see it too or is just me?
The bad news, he is directing one more. He told Rolling Stone, “Transformers, I still have a great time. It’s fun to do a movie that 100 million people will see. But this is the last one. I have to pass the reins to someone else.”
Am I the only person who didn’t know there was still an interest for this franchise? I thought Mark Wahlberg killed Transformers like George Clooney killed Batman.
