R | | Drama, Thriller
An unhinged war veteran holes up with a lonely woman in a spooky Oklahoma motel room. The line between reality and delusion is blurred as they discover a bug infestation.
According to Lynn Collins, director William Friedkin never took more than four takes to get a scene in this film, and in fact worked so fast that the actors sometimes had to beg him to do a second take when he thought they'd nailed it the first time.

The location of the motel is supposed to be in Oklahoma yet the telephone number on the room's telephone has a 504 area code of the filming location in Louisiana.
There is a short scene after the first part of the credits, a telephone rings during the credits, and a brief shot after the credits end.
