You can tell by my list of vomit enducing summer movies that I'm not too keen on the serge in horror movies that has taken place over the past couple years.
But, the film Bug has caught my attention because...
(1) Ashley Judd has gotten rave reviews since this film was shown at the Cannes Film Festival earlier in the year.
(2) Michael Shannon (pictured right, with Judd) was a standout in World Trade Center (as the marine) and I think his career could begin to take off.
(3) The story seems intriguing (although reminds me somewhat of the opening scene in A Scanner Darkly)
A paranoid war veteran sees invicible bugs crawling everywhere.
The film is directed by William Friedkin (who won an academy award for The French Connection and was nominated for The Exorcist).
The film comes out in limited release December 1st, 2006. The preview for the film can be viewed here.
