This is not the typical 'found footage' film that it may seem to be. 'The Bay' presents more of a documentary feel, by encompassing footage from multiple viewpoints and times that cultivates in understanding the horrific events that take place in this small bay town. What proceeds is the formation of a new 'creepy-crawly' aquatic formed creature and it's gruesome body count. The explanation of the new parasite is believable in a real-world sense, and it's because of this that the film gets under your skin. Rather than being a routine scare-fest, it takes it's time to build a sense of foreboding dread and unease. This makes the shocks all the more wince inducing.

Their gross-out capability is biting people's tongues off and laying eggs in the stomach. There is actually a real-life isopod that does this but it's perfectly harmless.
Made on what looks like a shoestring budget, "The Bay" does show that entertainment value takes good old-fashioned storytelling and the patience to follow through with it once it...

Don't Drink the Water

I had heard this film described as an eco-horror film with a found footage aspect. Considering how disappointed I have been in most of the so-called "found footage" films that have been released recently, I was skeptical coming in. However, the fact that Barry Levinson (who directed Rain Man, Sleepers and Wag the Dog amongst many others) was behind the camera made me feel a bit better about the film as a whole.

When it comes down to it - Levinson has a much better vision than other directors when it comes to found footage. He manages to make things feel fresh - using just about every kind of camera: security cameras, police car dash cams, handheld camcorders, Skype, cell phones, video diaries, live blogs, news footage - and he uses it in such a way that this feels more like a documenta...
