Radnja se odvija u malom gradiću koji izgleda kao da je napušten. Ben koji je tek doselio i nov je učenik u školi upoznaje Granta. Privlačnost ali i nelagoda koja diže seksualnu tenziju pretvara se u druženje sa zlokobnim krajem.
Bugcrush je kratki horor film koji uspjeva da nam napetost i nelagodu drži do zadnje minute filma. Sam kraj filma nije dorečen tako da gledaocima ostavlja mogućnost da sami protumače šta se stvarno dogodilo.
A small-town loner’s fascination with the new kid in town leads him into something much more sinister than he could ever have imagined.
Bugcrush is a short story on film. It details such flowery ideals as infatuation, carnal lust, and sexual naiveté. The work flows on the screen like a poem, skipping along at a deliberate, desperate pace and keeping the audience’s ears tuned in to each subtle nuance and inflection it carries in its message. Bugcrush is also a trip to hell. It wanders down the road less traveled, taking you back to the moments in your life where you could had done something different and taken that chance, and then shows you how it could have gone terribly awry. But what just levels anyone who watches the film is the ripe tension, the imposing feeling of unease that permeates so much of the screen.
