How to Bug a Lesbian,
This review is from: Masters of Horror: Lucky McKee - Sick Girl (DVD)
This volume of Masters of Horror is a strange hour-long film by Lucky McKee. The action centers around two young women. One is a shy lesbian who works as an entomologist at a natural history museum (Angela Bettis). The other is a more out-going artist (Erin Brown aka Misty Mundae). The two begin a relationship but not until the first receives a strange bug in the mail. It seems to be unlike anything currently known and it is unknown who sent it.
The bug escapes just as the two women embark on their relationship. Thing really spark between the two even though they are both unsure just how to proceed. Then one of them gets bitten by the bug and begins to change emotionally. But while that happens, the other is unaware of what is going on bug-wise. But the changes escalate and things start to get a little less idyllic. Eventually their status in their building becomes affected. It is at this point that we really start to learn what is really going on and why.
This is an interesting film with a good build-up and acting. The bug is seldom actually seen and we never really get a clear view of it. But it is the ending that is less than stellar. After a wonderful start and many tense scenes, the ending is like one of the goofier episodes of Tales From the Crypt (watch it and you will see what I mean). The film still works but just not in the way one hopes based on the beginning. Check it out.
