Not since Insidious came out have I been excited for any of the new paranormal type movies that have been released. Well, it just so happens that the producers of Insidious and Paranormal Activity have thrown their hat down on The Bay, a handheld cam horror flick dealing with a viral / parasitic / undead outbreak in a small town USA. Written and directed by Academy award winner Barry Levinson, you know, that guy who did Sphere and Sleepers, I think paranormal and horror lovers are in for a treat this November.
Plot Summary: 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. A brutal and harrowing creature feature for the 21st century, “The Bay” chronicles the descent of a small town into absolute terror.
Release Date: November 2, 2012
Director: Barry Levinson
