Panic feeds on fear


The producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious have set the scene to yet again freak the living daylights out of countless millions in their new cringe worthy film, The Bay.

Superbly directed by Barry Levinson, written by the exceedingly talented Michael Wallach, The Bay stars Kristen Connolly, Jane McNeill and Christopher Denham, in roles which will really have you wondering if they are paid actors or real people in a truly terrifying documentary. However I am happy to report that, although there are snippets from real news reports used during the opening to this film, this is definitely a mocumentary of epic proportions.

The Bay, depicts the horrific happenings in the small town of Maryland, on the 4th of July 2009, when a nightmarish ecological disaster occurred and we soon find out that nobody was safe.

Almost all the footage within the film is gathered together from home movies and security footage from that dreadful day, when hundreds lost their lives and many more were left traumatised from the unimaginable horrors they were witness to.

In one of the most sinister "Death From The Deep" films to be made in a long time, all the fish in the bay are floating dead in the water, the birds have dropped out of the sky and most of the population of the town have fallen ill with legions and severe pain, which looks like some kind of flesh eating bacteria. However after amputating countless limbs and watching all his patients slowly fall apart while complaining of feeling something "crawling" inside of them and eventually watching them all die, Dr. Jack Abrams discovers that there is an unimaginably dark secret lurking in the so-called paradise that is Chesapeake Bay and it's about to claim him too!

The Bay is a brilliantly disturbing horror thriller mocumentary, which is almost too believable, as it deals with a situation, which could really happen someday, and I for one really hope it doesn't!

The Bay has yet to be classified in Australia, however the recommended classification is MA 15, for disturbing violent content, bloody images and languages.
