Storyline

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.

Bugs A Trilogy: Certainly gets under your skin
11 December 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The curiously titled Bugs: A Trilogy is a horror anthology with the recurring theme of insects. At time of writing this hyper obscure independent crowd funded project has only 33 ratings on IMDB and was released in October.

With no wrap around to speak of it instead has very graphic imagery of insects, and even for a person with no related phobias it doesn't make for the easiest viewing.

The first story was tense and fairly interesting, the second was kinda gross and I didn't see quite what the appeal could possibly be and the third was the worst of all.

I respect indie movies and their filmmakers, but this skin crawling trio simply weren't very entertaining. It wasn't devoid of entertainment after all I didn't mind the first story but from there it was all downhill.

In making my skin crawl and feel generally uncomfortable it certainly succeeded, in providing an enjoyable 60 minutes not so much.

The Good:

First story was passable

The Bad:

Too much filler

2/3 was just not enjoyable

The music though fitting got old fast

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

Glasses are so yesterday, now people drink from jam jars

Coffee makes the world go round
