The Bay

The Bay

Directed by Barry Levinson

When two researchers find a staggering level of toxicity in Chesapeake Bay, they attempt to alert the town before the situation gets out of control. But panic spreads quickly as a deadly plague of parasites is unleashed causing sheer panic in what was once a docile seaside town. Veteran director Barry Levinson (DINER, RAIN MAN) goes full body horror in this underseen eco-terror, cleverly told through found footage.

A deadly plague of parasites is unleashed on a seaside town.

Cast: Will Rogers, Kristen Connolly, Kether Donohue, Frank Deal

I have watched The Bay a number of times and still enjoy it. A solid film for those who are a fan of the infection / virus centered plotline. There's a large thread of environmental / political commentary running through the film though, so I would bare that in mind if films with an agenda aren't really something you like to watch.

I love documentary style found-footage or mockumentary films, something about those long establishing shots with jilted sound bites and weird pauses really adds to the casual everyday horror that they offer. This is a good little film that builds well, does a fairly decent job of exploring the narrative, and isn't too out there to be unbelievable. The acting at times is pretty bad, the ending feels a little cut off but ultimately it's a good creature feature that doesn't disappoint. I could see the bones of the story being a dark TV one-off series with some more production and better actors.

Understated gem, I really enjoyed this! Found footage films can be hit or miss but this worked. Quite a scary view of what we have to come!
