Bite Me! (2004) from Tuna
Bite Me: Big Bugs with Bad Attitudes is the latest EI
Independent Cinema release. I have talked much more in the past
about their "Seduction Cinema" soft-core offerings, but they also
maintain a "Shock-O-Rama" label which includes an interesting
mixture of B movie low budget horror that they produce in-house, and
horror classics that they acquire the rights to. This one was
written, directed and edited by one of their in-house auteurs. IMDb
suggests that this is a horror movie, but you'll be disappointed if
you expect either a straight up horror film or a soft core sex film
with a horror backdrop. It actually is quite a brilliant little
horror comedy. The by-line hints at its appeal -- everyone in the
film has an attitude.
I really don't want to give away anything, but this
is the sort of humor that had me in hysterics. Stripper Erika Smith
will not wear her glasses on stage, not because of vanity, but
because she gets too nervous if she can see the crowd.
Unfortunately, she is nearly blind without them, and falls right off
the stage into a customer's arms. When another man picks a fight
with him, he tosses her to the floor with a thud. The female
bartender ends up kicking the crap out of both men and a few others.
