My cable service was offering the movie “Bug” for free over our DVR so I watched it tonight. I actually expected it to be at least entertaining Sci-Fi but it was very lame, boring, and dark. I think just about anybody would agree with that assessment. In other words, it’s not just because I’m biased, it was just bad. It had no real plot or purpose which makes me pretty skeptical on why it was made.
A guy shows up, the bug biting starts, then the crazy “digging them out of their skin” scenes, hundreds of rolls of fly paper hanging from the ceiling and so on. The guy called them “aphids”. Maybe next time Hollywood is asked to make a hit piece on a group they should consult an expert, LOL. Anyway, the guy talks about how the DEA engineered these bugs to spray them on the fields used to make cocaine. Of course, the bugs survive the cooking process and are meant to destroy the drug users since they can’t stop the drugs from coming into the country (destroy the customer I guess). And as you would expect there are crack pipes or whatever all around the place. It was 100% pure out of control madness on the part of the sufferers, real tin foil hat stuff. Of course, the people in the movie are all total losers and life’s washouts.
The guy looks through a microscope at the bugs in his blood. Eventually, the hotel room they’re living in is actually covered 100% in aluminum foil (cool look by the way) to block the signal that the bugs are transmitting to the DEA. The guy eventually rips himself to shreds, pulls his teeth out, just ridiculous. I wont tell you how it ends because it’s just horrible. I have to say Mr. Common Sense gives it two thumbs down.
The movie was way over the top. From a propaganda perspective anybody that has seen the movie would certainly think a Morgellons sufferer is totally nuts. I really don’t recommend anybody actually watch this movie (not that you would, but I was curious).
