Lionsgate has released the first trailer to a new found footage horror thriller directed by Barry Levinson (Sphere, Sleepers) called The Bay. This is different kind of film for the director, and it's kind of a mix of Paranormal Activity and Contagion mixed with some creepy bug things. The footage tells a story about some kind of viral outbreak being caused by a crazy looking parasite. Found footage movies are hit or miss for me, this one seems to have an interesting premise, but it can go either way.
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 movie is set to hit theaters on November 2nd, will you be checking it out?
