So the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious have teamed up with writer Michael Wallach and director Barry Levinson (Wag The Dog, Rain Man) to bring us this pretty real to life documentary style horror called The Bay. Leaning heavily on the Blair Witch, Paranormal Activity vibe this film or at least it’s trailer delivers some pretty significant frights.
Synopsis @ Den Of Geek : 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 film will showcase at TIFF this month and releases nationally on November 2nd 2012.
