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.

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...
