Agnes has finally escaped her abusive ex-husband Goss, who has recently been released from state prison. Agnes is a lonely waitress with a tragic past who moves into a sleazy, run-down Oklahoma motel room with her lesbian co-worker R.C. She, in turn, introduces Agnes to Gulf War veteran, Peter, a peculiar, paranoiac drifter and they begin a tentative romance. However, things don't always seem as they appear and Agnes is about to experience a claustrophobic nightmare reality... as the bugs begin to arrive.

This movie left the station right on time, everything was running smoothly... Then it just derailed; went right off the tracks. Crashed and burned.

The acting was good but I wasn’t interested in the story. This movie is based on a play and perhaps it just didn’t translate well to the big screen.

I think if I were as high on the same drugs these guys were, I might have "got" this movie! I kept watching hoping the point of this movie might show itself. Nah....Don't waste your time.

Ashley Judd is a trouper in this misguided film. Though I enjoy Michael Shannon, he's annoying here in the role he created off Broadway. I get the point of the movie but I wish Friedkin wasn't married to self mutilation to tell a story of paranoia. I hope Judd gets a better vehicle someday soon, she's very talented.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box.

William Friedkin, famous for The French Connection, The Exorcist, The Boys in the Band does very few films nowadays. Bug is a film with characters that you want to get away from as they seem worse and worse as time goes by. Since the characters started getting kinda creepy, I didn't like any of them by the end. Good riddance! Strangely though, I started to see if his next film was on DVD yet.

This movie could have been better, as I found that it was hard to follow at times. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it but it is worth a watch. I would recommend this to fans of psychological thrillers.

Michael Shannon (also in the fabulous movie Shotgun Stories) is pretty brilliant in this film. I expected a cheesy horror film, but the movie takes a different turn. smart, unexpected, and good acting.

Sexual Content: Graphic love scene between Ashley Judd and Michael Shannon. If you've ever questioned the disparity between female and male nudity in films you might appreciate that Michael Shannon gets naked too.
