Ah, there is nothing in the world like a nice, close-up poster of a naked, hairy man's chest sliced up a little bit with embossed lettering. That alone is enough to make me curious about Bug, Ashley Judd's latest film. Last September, Jette reviewed it from Fantastic Fest. To recap -- it's a juicy piece of suspense, even if some parts fell flat and others evoked laughter without meaning to. Then in November, Lionsgate pushed back the release date to some time in 2007. The date has now been set -- May 25 -- and we've got a new, full-length trailer to see what all the buggy fuss is about.

Having Harry Connick Jr. in a creepy thriller is intriguing. Ashley Judd, well, it isn't surprising, but isn't bad either. Then to have Petie in a headlining role -- that's just tasty! Or, so I'd think. This is where I get confused. Check the trailer out. How much can we expect from a thriller when we have one of those "Larger. Than. Life. Disembodied. Voices." saying "They live in your blood" and "They feed on your brain"? Watching the trailer, all I can think of is that bit from My Date with Drew where they get the voice-over guy, George DelHoyo, involved. Coming from the director of The Exorcist, William Friedkin, I'd expect a trailer that pushes the buttons of anxiety and creepiness. Not one that keeps making me giggle. If you turn off the sound, it looks all sorts of creepy. However, if you're ready for a laugh, crank that sucker up and delight in the blood and brains.
