Casey (Elma Begovic) and her two besties take a bachelorette vacation in Costa Rica where they swim in a secluded pond. Casey gets bit, hence the title. This opening sequence was done in "found footage" mode, but ends after the credits. Casey comes back to Jared (Jordan Gray) who is "good looking, investment banker, and probably good in bed" as his mother doesn't want Casey to "soil" her son prior to the wedding. She lives in an apartment without a deadbolt inside.
We know Casey Has a tan line where her engagement ring should be, Jared wants kids, Casey can't have kids, and she needs to tell him about that "other thing" we find out later but isn't hard to deduce. Casey undergoes a transformation, as you can guess from the DVD cover from "the bite."
As a prospective Mother-in-Law, Lawrene Denkers was over-the-top, making Agnes Moorehead look good. I loved the special effects and wished the token hot Asian chick (Denise Yuen) had a bigger role, but that is just me. I thought the plot was fine, if not predictable for a horror story. The characters needed a little more depth, but for a "B" horror, it was passible. The film attempted to be cute with some lines, which may work on some people and turn off others. Why Casey needed to "talk" to a doctor by phone instead of seeing one didn't make sense, considering the issues, but that would have been another scene shooting and another character on the payroll. The decontamination scene was ad hoc with everybody wearing different level protective clothing with some oddly wearing a filter mask inside an enclosed suit. Clearly the production just bought a bunch of stuff and had people just wear what they wanted. Worth a watch. Soft 4 stars.

After returning home with cold feet, Casey tries to call off her wedding but before she's able to, she starts exhibiting insect like traits. Between her physical transformation and her wedding anxiety, Casey succumbs to her new instincts and begins creating a hive that not only houses her translucent eggs, but feeds on the flesh of others.
