Harry Connick Jr. was cast when he happened to be sitting across from William Friedkin at a Las Vegas hotel opening, and started to "put him on" in a way that reminded Friedkin of the character of Jerry Goss. See more »
Throughout all the scenes in the motel where the bathroom is visible, we see that the bathroom door is a regular standard door. But in the scene when Peter is removing a tooth, as he goes to enter the bathroom the door changes into a double louvered door. Then changes back to the regular door in later scenes. See more »
The movie "Bug", by William Friedkin, was by far one of the most intense psychological thrillers I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. It truly does make you question almost everything. It really gets inside you and makes you feel a certain sense of paranoia. I very much liked the symbol of the "bugs" themselves. The idea that the modern, everyday American can know so little but know everything at the same time, the idea that they question everything and believe so much of nothing at all. The idea of complete paranoia, thats the symbol of the bugs. It gets inside you, makes you feel uneasy, makes you almost crazy, it can even make you kill yourself. This is by far, one of the most inspiring films ever made. To many others it may be just stupid but thats only because they do not understand it truly. Thats my thought on the movie.
