Bug (Released May 19, 2006) 7.5 of 10 on the Gash-O-Meter
Director: William Friedkin
Starring: Ashley Judd, Michael Shannon, Harry Connick Jr.
Running Time: 102 minutes Rated: R
Budget: $4,000,000 Gross: $8,047,800

A psychological thriller helmed by the director of The Exorcist that is nearly completely staged in a tiny motel efficiency. Michael Shannon is excellent and Ashley Judd follows in step as he leads her into his paranoia. Few, but effective special F/X enhance the experience. Harry Connick, Jr also gives a great performance in the surprising role of the abusive ex-boyfriend. A well-made, underrated film that gives viewers a little something different. Nicely done.
