William Friedkin's 'Bug' trailer

Based on Tracy Letts stage play.
Hopefully a return to form for Friedkin. He's made a lot of garbage recently, but he's also made some of my favorite films of all-time (The Exorcist, Sorcerer, The French Connection, To Live and Die in LA and yes, Cruising).

Saw this trailer yesterday. Doesn't fill me with any kind of excitement. Looks like a pretty standard horror flick. I hope he'll suprise me cause I think Exorcist is the best horror film ever. I'll wait for reviews.

Now I read this is based off a play? And it barely qualifies as a horror film? My low expectations just dropped a bit more.

Wow. So two pieces of trailer trash get bugs in their blood stream in a motel? Sounds thrilling...

I think there may be a bit more to it than that.

Though the voice over in the trailer really annoys me. It's the "In a world where..." guy.

Having said that, the play in considered a pretty powerful piece.
Contains spoilers, so proceed at your own caution.

I was afraid this would be marketed the wrong way.

Having read the play, I would say this is more of a "suspense/thriller" kind of movie than a "horror" movie. It's about extreme paranoia and obsession...and if the acting and direction do justice to the script, this will be one hell of a movie. I wouldn't write it off yet.
