[tabby title="Bite"] Body horror films are a type of flicks that do their hardest to gross you out, be it through teleportation mishaps (The Fly), to sex with a man who has sex with dead people (Contraction).

Bite is a fairly simple film, with only a few people and very limited set pieces. Obviously, this is due to the scale of the budget, but it does hurt the film some. Some viewers are going to feel cheated when they realize not much is actually going to happen. There are a total of around five characters in the film and not much character development is done on them, even Elma Begovic 's character is paper thin for the most part.
