Directed by Barry Levinson

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.

I was fully engaged throughout the entire movie. Very good use of visuals, remarkable found footage film. Well paced, well played and most importantly, utterly terrifying.
Usually the problems with found footage films is that they require a lot of improv skills and someone that has a clear vision. Enter Barry Levinson, someone that has an impressive career at every genre, to make a deceptively simple found footage that ends up being a very solid and chilling and thanks God pulpy affair, at his 70s
My second mist hated movie of all time, only surpassed by Take Shelter. This us just dreadfully hirrible and not in a good way.
the bay is one of my all time favorite movies because of its use of real life horrors and found footage aesthetic. i love marine biology so this really hits home for me with its use of the real tongue eating isopods. the only problem i have with the movie is that the main girls voice can get a little annoying considering she is the main announcer for this film but i got over it very quickly. 5/5 skulls for me :)
