FIRST BITE takes place mainly in a women’s restroom at a metal concert with its central character (Catherine Saindon) barfing her guts out. Turns out she hasn’t been able to keep any food down in days.
FIRST BITE is a breezy, but wicked short film that manages to tell a story with very little words or action. Most of the runtime lingers on the lead spewing in an uncleaned toilet bowl, which makes for a rather gnarly watch for those who might get queasy at that sort of thing. But there is a story under all of that retching to be told.
The payoff might be predictable to those who know the horror genre, but it’s an ending done well. Clsing with a punchline that’s sure to cause a laugh. FIST BITE makes this simple scene a vivid watch with some solid camerawork, decent acting, and a truly grimy environment.
It looks like this short film has been making the rounds at the fests and it just recently was released online (watch it below!).
