Trailer and poster for Barry Levinson's The Bay features another trip down found-footage lane

09.05.2012

In a very surprising move, Barry Levinson, director of such classics as THE NATURAL, RAIN MAN, and GOOD MORNING VIETNAM, has decided to dip his toe in the found-footage horror genre with THE BAY, an infection flick with all the trimmings; flesh-eating creatures, zombies, 911 calls, shitty hand-held video, and of course, screaming. 

It doesn't look half bad, but it doesn't look like a knock out of the park either.  Although he hasn't had a major hit in a while, I still expect more from Levinson, as he's proven to have more clout based on his reporoirre.  However, I can't begrudge a guy for taking a chance and doing something different, if even just to try it out. There are definitely some genuinely creepy moments, shouldered with some genuinely cliched ones. 

Get infected:

Here's the synopsis:

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.

THE BAY hits theaters and iTunes on November 2, 2012.
