Barry Levinson’s (yes, the director of Rain Man) ecological/creepy crawlies- found footage horror film THE BAY makes it world premiere tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival, but for those unable to attend the fest fret not as the poster & trailer has just washed up for your viewing pleasure below!
Found Footage criticism aside, it’s beyond cool to see an Oscar winning director making a completely out of left field move to horror. It’s yet to be seen or heard if it lives up to the hype, but nonetheless this looks like an interesting idea filled with some skin crawling moments. You’ll be able to decide for yourself when it hits theaters & VOD November 2nd from Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions.
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.”
