"Bugs are a fairly common delusion among paranoids... Bugs, spiders, snakes... spiders." Bug is one hell of a motion picture experience, a nail-bitingly intense and thematically heavy piece of work guaranteed to polarise audiences. Based on the acclaimed play by Tracy Letts, who also provided the screenplay, this is not some cheap fright-fest about extra-terrestrial bugs; instead, it's a claustro... read more

Very Cool movie that I had no idea existed, starring Ashley Judd of all people. But its the lead male that steals the show. His performance is truly brilliant. (Shes great in it too, its just that this guy was SO damn good) I guess this was adapted from the stage, and the leading man in question performed it for months, but man that would be one wierd night at the theatre. Bug is expertly directed... read more

The critics gave this one pretty good reviews and I thought I would try it out. Ouch, I could have missed this one and been better off. I rarely want to leave in the middle of a movie, but I did in this one. The longer the movie went the more absurd it became. If you want to watch a couple of really mentally unstable people fall further and further out of touch with reality, watch this movie. ... read more

At a rundown desert motel, Agnes (Ashley Judd) begins a tentative relationship with a newcomer named Peter (Michael Shannon). He has a strange charisma, one that offers fearful and unstable Agnes a flicker of hope. When Peter reveals that the military deliberately infected him with a bug and that he has tiny insects crawling under his skin, paranoia begins to envelop the desperate pair.

" Peter Evans "It's a surveillance tool. It's a microchip that's been implanted in the skin of every human being born on the planet since 1982. The test group for the prototype was the People's Temple! And when the Reverend Jim Jones threatened to expose them, he and every member of his church were assassinated!""

"3. katselukerta. Äärimmäinen kuvaus äärimmäisestä skitsofreniasta. Niin pitkälle vietyä hulluutta, että siitä tulee totta: Michael Shanon on loistava. Hulluuden lisäksi teemoina parisuhteet, tottumukset, parisuhdeväkivalta, crack (?), altistuminen mielettömyydelle... eli se että myös hulluus voi tarttua hieman kuin flunssa..."

The 50 Greatest Horror Movies of the 21st Century (50 movies items)

"Bug, an intense little chamber play of blossoming madness, allowed William Friedkin to put his characteristic screws to both his characters and his audience while nearly achieving a poignancy that only heightens the horror. Your enjoyment of the film may depend on whether or not you buy how quickly Ashley Judd succumbs to paranoia and insanity. I didn’t buy it, but the film’s relentlessness overcomes the occasionally stagy absurdity. In one of his first key roles, Michael Shannon looks a lit"
