The Bay (2012) Movie Image

If this first clip from Barry Levinson’s “The Bay” is to be believed, human being have yet to master the simple task of shooting a home video without moving around like a spastic on meth. Of course, to accept this conceit, you would also have to live in a world where every single consumer video camera, from the cheapest, bottom-basement brand to the most expensive, don’t all have standard stabilizing functions. Or the fact that even my 7-year old nephew knows how to shoot a camera without giving the appearance of a crackhead looking for his next hit. Having said that, please to watch the first clip from “The Bay”, a Found Footage movie about a coastal town infected by a killer virus.

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. From Oscar(R)-winning director Barry Levinson and the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes this nerve-shredding tale of a small town plunged into absolute terror. 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 though people’s iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, webcams, and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge.

Starring Will Rogers, Kristen Connolly, Kether Donohue, Frank Deal, Stephen Kunken, Christopher Denham, Nansi Aluka, and infecting theaters November 2, 2012.
