Spasms

Death Bite

1983

William Fruet
Director

Vengeful hunter gets his prey, a locallly worshipped deity, caught and brought home...what could go wrong?

Low budget 80s horror with some big budget trappings. For those of us that grew up in the golden days of rubber monsters and Fangoria magazine, here's one of the cover stars, a beastie and its mayhem produced by Carl Fullerton, Stephan Dupuis and the legendary Dick Smith. Pity it is required that most of the action takes place in poor lighting. Ollie Reed delivers a staggeringly good performance (especially at the end).

A theme by Tangerine Dream and a gratuitous shower scene fulfill the rest of the required trappings for the genre.

Never released on DVD.
