There's a sex scene with breasts shown. Full frontal female nudity, as well as some male nudity (backside and some glimpses of frontal).

A man stabs another man in the stomach repeatedly, he screams, we see blood on his shirt and mouth, and he falls on the floor; he is then stabbed repeatedly in the back, then in the stomach again, and a woman screams (we hear crunching, yelling, groaning and we see a lot of blood).

A man uses a wrench to pull a tooth out of his mouth: his mouth bleeds profusely, he continues to pull and he screams loudly, and more blood pours from his mouth while a woman tries to stop him.

A woman uses a staple gun on a man's hand to keep him from getting into her room (we see blood on his hand).

A dead body is shown lying on the floor of a room, covered with blood.

A man and a woman pour gasoline around a room and on each other and then light a match (the room is engulfed in flames and it is implied that they burn as well, but we do not see them).

A man pokes his finger with a pin, smears a drop of blood on a glass slide and looks at it through a microscope. A man looks at a bloody tooth through a microscope and sees many bugs swimming through the blood. Blood is smeared on the floor from a man's bloody wounds.

A man and woman have scratches and sores from scratching and trying to remove "egg sacs" from under their skin.

A man strikes a woman in the face, she falls to the floor, and we see her bloody nose and lip. A man breaks a door open, holds a gun to a woman's face and pushes her into a chair.

38 F-words and its derivatives, 3 sexual references, 19 scatological terms, 6 anatomical terms, 9 mild obscenities, 4 derogatory terms for homosexuals, name-calling, 7 religious profanities, 19 religious exclamations.

We see people cutting cocaine in a couple of scenes and it is implied that they have ingested some, but the act is not shown, a woman smokes marijuana, and a man smokes a drug from a pipe (it's not clear what type). A woman throws away several empty bottles of wine, opens a full one and pours a glass (we do not see her drink from it), and people drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes in a bar scene. A woman smokes cigarettes in several scenes.

Bug has a very deep psychological undertone to it. Based on the play, it tells the story of how a normal woman met a man who was overly paranoid, and thereby driving the woman to that level of paranoia as well (which ends in them both committing suicide). Viewers will start to believe the paranoia is true, and the element of the paranoia can be very frightening.

Rated R for some strong violence, sexuality, nudity, language and drug use
