I still can't fathom that the director of RAIN MAN, Barry Levinson, dipped his toe into the found-footage genre with THE BAY, a movie E. Dubb found quite mediocre. That said, I'm too intrigued to pass it by completely, and if you feel the same, perhaps this home release news for the flick will be of interest.
Word is THE BAY arrives on DVD and Digital Download March 5 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The disc will include an audio commentary with director Barry Levinson, as well as a "Into the Unknown: Barry Levinson on The Bay" featurette.
Starring Kristen Connolly (below), Will Rogers, Kether Donohue and Christopher Denham:
Two million fish washed ashore. One thousand blackbirds dropped from the sky. On July 4, 2009 a deadly menace swept through the quaint seaside town of Claridge, Maryland, but the harrowing story of what happened that Independence Day has never been told – until now. From Oscar®-winning* director Barry Levinson and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this nerve-shredding tale of a small town plunged into absolute terror. The authorities believed they had buried the truth about the tragedy that claimed over 700 human lives. Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing the cover-up and an unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak. Told from the perspective of those who were there and saw what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours though people’s iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, web cams, and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge.
March 5th yo, THE BAY docks at home.
