A babysitter with a clever and violent ward. A patient who mistrusts the doctor's orders. A young woman haunted by a malevolent presence. And the terror that ties them all together: BUGS. On their own, spiders, parasites, and bedbugs hold their own private horror for those who are beset by the quiet scuttles and slurps of inhuman creatures. But for Diane, Hannah, and Elena, three varied yet eerily similar women, these bugs represent the larger horrors of paranoia, helplessness, and abandonment. The Bugs Trilogy explores the inequality of the watcher and ward, relationships between mothers and their children, and the measures we are willing to take to protect ourselves from dangers we do not want to comprehend.Written by
Horror anthologies are a lost art. When I was really little I read "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" in repeat, then as I got into TV I'd watch "Twilight Zone" reruns and quickly graduated to "Creepshow" and "Tales from the Crypt". I love the idea of watching multiple shorter horror tales that can be completely different. It is the rush of meeting the characters and knowing something is going to happen very soon. The lengths vary, the characters, and settings. There is something so exciting, and keeps you so off guard. These are not stories told in three acts or over the length of a movie's runtime.
"Bugs: A Trilogy" is an anthology movie that takes me back to the old days of horror anthologies. I went in not knowing what to expect - except for the inclusion of bugs - and I'm happy that I went in fresh. What I discovered was three very different short horror stories with a central theme (and some shared casting). The horror is not in your face gore (although there is some grossness), but more of a psychological build through the stories with a underlining sense of dread. If you want a clean straightforward movie, this isn't that; this is a true horror anthology that will leave you questioning some of what you just watched and will make you come to your own conclusions.
