Bug ★★ 2006 (R)

Girl (Judd) meets boy (Shannon). Girl and boy have one night stand. Boy goes insane and takes girl with him (maybe). Thriller based on a play and marketed as a horror film because its director is famous for “The Exorcist.” If you like dark psychological movies shot almost entirely in one room where people talk and slowly lose their minds, this film is for you. If you were expecting a gory traditional horror movie, you will likely be disappointed. But you'll probably be somewhat happy that Ashley Judd briefly gets naked. 101m/C DVD . US Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon, Harry Connick Jr., Lynn Collins, Brian F. O'Byrne; D: William Friedkin; W: Tracy Letts; C: Michael Grady; M: Brian Tyler.
