Plot Summary

A creepy psychological thriller from the director of The Exorcist! A lonely waitress with a tragic past, Agnes rooms in a run-down motel, living in fear of her abusive, recently paroled ex-husband. But when Agnes begins a tentative romance with Peter, an eccentric, nervous drifter, she starts to feel hopeful again - until the first bugs arrive... Probing the blurry lines between paranoia and nightmarish reality, BUG is an intense, mind-bending psychological thriller in which nothing is quite as it seems.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Bug won't get under your skin as much as it will assault you with its ghastly claustrophobic drama and over-the-top performances. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Sep 1, 2007

Fresh: Bug goes exactly where it needs to go -- to a place most filmmakers don't dare go -- and gets there brilliantly. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 2, 2007

Fresh: Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon (who reprises his stage persona) never allow us to categorize the main characters as one-dimensional nut jobs but two emotionally fractured souls who retreat into paranoid delusion. – Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: After nearly three decades of misfires, major and minor, William Friedkin, the creator of The French Connection, The Exorcist and Sorcerer, is back in true form with Bug. – Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer, Jun 24, 2010

Customer Reviews

Icky, which can be good.

There are lots of reasons not to see this movie: you don't particularly like seeing perfectly good lives circling the drain; you're averse to shouty film; you'd rather Harry Connick Jr. settle himself down in front of a piano again and play something nice; you've got a thing about pliers. There's a lot that goes on in the movie's hundred minutes or so that fans of nice won't enjoy, and which fans of Michael-Shannon-as-that-creepy-guy probably will (he had had about a decade's experience with that sort of part by the time Bug was made); Ashley Judd fans' reactions will very much depend on their taste for druggy degradation and/or closeups of nipples.

So… not a date movie, not necessarily a whole lot of capital-F fun, intense, draining, probably leaving you wanting to hug someone when it's all over. Is that worth a rental?


its like the exorcisum of bugs
