The Bay

Take a little bit of Paranormal Activity, throw in some Slither and shake it up with Contagion and that seems to be The Bay, the new found footage horror film from Barry Levinson. Found footage fare is hit or miss, but this looks to be unique in that the plot seems to be fairly realistic following some sort of viral outbreak caused by a small bug-like parasite. In addition, I think this is the first found footage film to be directed by an Oscar-winning filmmaker. There's a lot of moments in here that are reminiscent of other horror films, but with this grounded, found footage setting, they might be a little more terrifying. Watch it!

Here's the first trailer for Barry Levinson's TIFF selected film The Bay originally from Apple:

The quaint seaside town of Chesapeake Bay thrives on water; it is the lifeblood of the community. When two biological researchers from France find a staggering level of toxicity in the water, they attempt to alert the mayor, but he refuses to create a panic in the docile town. As a result, a deadly plague is unleashed, turning the people of Chesapeake Bay into hosts for a mutant breed of parasites that take control of their minds, and eventually their bodies. Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Sphere, Wag the Dog, You Don't Know Jack) directs The Bay written by Michael Wallach. The film hits TIFF this month and theaters starting November 2nd.

    It looks interesting and all but this found footagehandheld cam stuff is really off-putting to me by now.
  • I saw this movie when it was called 'Night of the Creeps' parasite slugs taking over peoples minds. so cliche.
  • Chazzy
    So.. does this follow any specific character? Or is it a bunch of random video footage from random sources in the town?
  • My hubby is one of the paramedics in this movie
  • Yep, leave out the zombie bit, but everything has to be spelled out in big bold letters these days.
