Wait what? Is this a sequel what?
17 February 1999 | by Peggy-7See all my reviews

Okay, I'm glad the only thing that this and the first film have in common is they both have scenes with REALLY REALLY REALLY religious people. While this one is a little better than the CURSE it is not a great film, it should have been titled something else, maybe then I could enjoy it more. Maybe just The Bite, or do that Hollywood thing and put THE BYTE! But then people may think it's about a computer!

On a scale of ONE to TEN the CURSE II:THE BITE gets a 5! Because it's the sequel of the movie with the guy from Stand By Me in it!
