Product Description

Chesapeake Bay is a seaside town that relies on water and the dockside tourism it brings to the community. When two biological researchers find a staggering level of toxicity in the water they attempt to alert the mayor before the situation gets out of control. However, the mayor refuses to raise the alarm in fear of creating a panic among the citizens of 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. Taking control of their minds, and eventually their bodies, the parasites soon cause the town to descend in absolute terror as they quickly realise the harrowing reality they are faced with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must See Horror Movie! 22 Mar 2013
The Bay is one of those horror films that just needs to be seen by every horror fan! Mixing Shivers with 28 Days Later and Jaws, The Bay is a fantastically realistic and powerful movie that's very heavy on it's eco message. This film stands heads and shoulders above other horror films, which comes as no surprise when you realise that the director behind Rain Man and Good Morning Vietnam is responsible for the film. Whilst the found footage genre has become tiring and saturated now, The Bay offers something completely different - giving the genre a much needed fresh boost.

Full of gross-out moments that are bound to get your skin crawling, this is a horror film for those who not only like a film with a message, but also for people who enjoy a fun, gruesome and disturbing roller-coaster ride of a movie!

Highly recommended - go and check it out!

3.0 out of 5 stars Still or sparkling?.... 15 Jan 2014
2009, the town of Chesapeake Bay in Maryland. Something has infected the water, but it's not known what it is or how it is transmitted.

But when people start turning up dead and others start to do strange things, fear turns to panic and the town is shut down.

The Government confiscate all video footage from every source possible. This footage which is put together by a news reporter who was there......

Another month, another found footage movie, but this time there is a twist, it's an actual prolific director who has made it, and its not as bad as you would think, being that the main selling point on the poster is 'from the makers of Insidious, and Paranormal Activity' which to honest puts me off now.

The film isn't particularly scary or very effective with its message, but its different like last years Chronicle, and doesn't need a poltergeist, Witch, or alien to have a gimmick to enthuse people.

This is a film about people getting sick, and the cost of pollution.

It's a strange way to get a message over, but it does, albeit a little heavy handed.

It's not as good as some critics have stated, but it isn't as bad as you'd think.

Just an average, forgettable movie, with a little bit of gore, and a few good jumps.

3.0 out of 5 stars Above average eco-horror mockumentary 28 Aug 2013
Occasionally i'll rent or buy a film, despite negative reviews, on the hope it will be better but invariably being disappointed. The Bay is one of those rarities where I was expecting a train wreck but actually turned-out to be pretty decent. I wouldn't go as far as to say 'great' but it's a worthwhile Saturday night flick.

The idea behind the film was solid, and evidently had some thought gone into it. The central premise being Chesapeake Bay's main contributor to the local economy (intensive chicken farming) has wrought serious havoc on the marine eco-system. This in turn has let loose a mega-parasite which has made it's way into the human food chain. This puts a real dampener on their July 4th celebrations - apparently it's hard to enjoy yourself when you're being eaten inside out by wee beasties.

The premise is that media intern, Stephanie, happens to be covering the celebrations, which accounts for her footage as she documents the town's swift descent into chaos and general blood-letting. In tandem with her quasi narration, we also have the found footage of two (since deceased) marine biologists whose research helps to bring the viewer up to speed insomuch how the parasites came to be.

The effects themselves are pretty decent, with a fair bit of CGI thrown in. So where it's short of blood and guts it compensates with a creeping dread, the inexorable fear that nothing will stop the parasite.

Where The Bay didn't work so well was the media student, who I found rather grating at times which made it hard to identify with her as the lead character. Also I found it 'convenient' how the chaos occured too abruptly; I though it would have worked better if tracked over a longer timescale than just 24 hours.

Otherwise, it was a watchable and sobering lesson in how mother nature has a habit of retaliating.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horror Trunk Review: Found Footage Fatigue. 7 Mar 2013
The Bay is a mockumentary of 'found' footage narrating the breakout of an infection at a seaside bay, during the 4th July celebrations. The main character narrates the footage, she becomes like an annoying directors commentary, boring and unnecessary for most. The Bay reminded me of a sedated version of Jaws; cue the obnoxious town committee, the height of the holiday season, and widespread terror, minus the shark and all the gore.

Instead I suggest you wait until the weather warms, and head to your local seaside town, as there are many real life terrors to be seen there.......and for free.

4.0 out of 5 stars They Came From Within! 30 Jan 2013
The Bay [Blu-ray]

Message movies are tricky things. A movie is meant to entertain so striking a balance can be tough. Get it wrong and you risk overloading the narrative with preaching or making a joke of the thing you're trying to raise awareness of.

If, as we see in The Bay, you can get it right, the results can be memorable. The Bay uses a found footage documentary style to record an outbreak of flesh eating parasites as they gorge themselves on the population of a small American town on the 4th of July.

Using police footage, CCTV, SMS messages, Skype calls and panicked phone calls, director Barry Levinson weaves a truly terrifying scenario in which all authority breaks down, simultaneously critiquing mans abuse of the natural environment and governmental callousness in response to natural disasters like Hurricane Katrina.

Thought provoking without preaching, awareness raising without lecture and packed with enough gore and sickness to satisfy demanding splatter fans even if they couldn't care less about polluted waters and impending environmental calamity.
