Review: Killing Bites
Season Aired: Winter 2018 - 12 episodes
MAL Link: Killing Bites
I watched it at: Kawaiifu
KIlling Bites is an R-rated B-movie.
It's the kind of outrageous sex and violence filled schlocky sci-fi grindhouse you might have found on direct-to-video or late-night cable once upon an age ago.
The kind of show where you see somebody casually pick up their own chopped-off arm and beat their opponent to death with it.
It is filled with brutal savagery and unintended hilarity.
I can only describe it as solid gold trash.
The Plot in a Nutshell:
The show is about a tournament called "Killing Bites" where humans who have been genetically modified with the DNA of an animal fight to the death.
Hilarity ensues when you realize that the main character has been pulled directly from one of the Internet's classic memes: The Honey Badger.
With 93 million views so far, let us review this classic YouTube video of that crazy, nasty-ass Honey Badger.
If you are familiar with the meme, then you know that Honey Badger don't care. Honey Badger don't give a shit.
Yes, our main character has been genetically modified with the DNA of the Honey Badger and, no, they don't give a shit.
Killing Bites is "Good" for certain narrow definitions of "Good". If you are in the mood for a schlocky, R-rated, blood-splattering, action-filled grindhouse romp, then look no further! You are in for a couple hours of solid entertainment.
if that's not your bag, then you will need to look elsewhere because that's what this show has to offer.
I only rate series on how entertained my brain was during the viewing. I would say I was engaged with it all the way through while realizing this ain't no masterpiece. More like a guilty pleasure.
