THE BITE (1989) Frederico Prosperi's Monstrous Cult Film
THE BITE (1989) Frederico Prosperi\'s Monstrous Cult Film

Rare, Uncut Version of Frederico Prosperi's Monstrous Thriller

director: Frederico Prosperi (as Fred Goodwin)
starring: Jill Shoelen J Eddie Peck Jamie Farr Savina Gersak Sandra Sexton Bo Svenson

Shot in Arizona by Frederico Prsperi and his (mostly) Italian crew, here is the totally unconventional story of a young man who - after getting bitten by a radioactive snake - begins to transform into a murderous serpent. The FX are far beyond the norm, designed by the irrationally good Screaming Mad George (best known for RE-ANIMATOR). The weirdness is confidently orchestrated by young director Frederico Prosperi, a filmmaker who learned his craft while working under his father Franco Prosperi's stern eye (serving as assistant director for such classics as GOODBYE UNCLE TOM).

A young couple, Clark and Lisa, are enjoying a road trip in Southwest USA. Enroute to Albuquerque, they decide to take a shortcut through a remote section of the Arizona desert. They weren't aware of it, but this part of the wilderness was being used for nuclear testing and snakes have been severely infected. During a flat tire incident, Clark is bitten. He soon begins to hallucinate and experience bouts of violent rage... but the worst: his arm, where he's been bitten, is starting to transform into a snake!

An Italian production; original fullscreen, totally uncut version (94 min.), in English or French language, import DVD encoded for ALL REGION NTSC, playable on any American machine. Extras include various trailers and composite.
