Agnes White (Ashley Judd) is struggling to keep steady, living in a motel and working at a lesbian bar with her friend R.C. (Lynn Collins). One night R.C. introduces her to Peter Evans (Michael Shannon), a mysterious young man whose theories on life intrigue her. Mad with mutual loneliness, the two hole up together in the motel room. When Peter’s increasing paranoia about being monitored by the government and plagued by subcutaneous bugs seems real enough to Agnes, the frantic body horror and mental anguish threatens to undo her.

In this wild production from director William Friedkin (The Exorcist), Ashley Judd stands out, injecting nuance into what could have been a cartoonish performance. Crawling around a room covered in aluminum foil and lit only by bug zappers, she manifests Agnes as a visceral being whose every tic comes from her core.
