If you’re like most of us, you’re probably going to catch a cold this time of year. Maybe the flu, a nasty cough or just some low-grade annoying fever that keeps you on the fence about calling in sick to work. Face it, you’ve got a good chance of coming down with a nasty bug this winter. But if you’re lucky and end up with the ever-so-trendy Zika Virus, at least you’ll get some screen time on your local news.
Of course, that’s not the government’s fault, right? Zika Virus wasn’t designed and released by a shadowy network of world leaders to thin the world’s population, right?
Maybe we’re the subject of dangerous biological testing? And now these GMO-tweaked mosquitoes are running amuck, spreading Zika Virus across the world! Perhaps other experiments are still going on and microscopic bugs have invested our bodies and are replicating! Burn everything!
Or maybe it’s all in your head?
Join an unhinged drifter recently discharged from the military and a down-n-out waitress dealing with a wreck of a life as they form a freakishly intense bond when dealing with an invisible infestation of intelligent killer bugs.
Directed by Hollywood legend William Friedkin (The French Connection, To Live and Die in LA, The Exorcist), and featuring the massive talent of Michael Shannon supported by Ashley Judd and Harry Connick, Jr., Bug delivers a tight psychological thriller that smolders for a bit then leaps in psychotic fits and starts taking you on an uncomfortable journey into paranoia and madness.
Grab some tinfoil and enjoy the show.
