If you listened to the most recent episode of the FearShop.com Horror Podcast, you would know that I was blown away by Barry Levinson’s The Bay.
From Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man) and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes The Bay, a horror story of a sleepy town infected by a deadly menace. The Bay arrives on DVD and Digital Download March 5 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
An official selection of the New York and Toronto International Film Festivals, this tale of a quaint seaside town plunged into absolute terror stars Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods) and Christopher Denham (Argo, Shutter Island). The DVD includes audio commentary by director Barry Levinson and a featurette, “Into the Unknown: Barry Levinson on The Bay.”
“Two million fish washed ashore. One thousand blackbirds dropped from the sky. On July 4, 2009 a deadly menace swept through the quaint seaside town of Claridge, Maryland, but the harrowing story of what happened that Independence Day has never been told – until now. The authorities believed they had buried the truth about the tragedy that claimed over 700 human lives. Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing the cover-up and an unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak. Told from the perspective of those who were there and saw what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours through people’s iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, web cams and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge.”
