Doing for backyard swimming pools and tap water what Psycho did for showers and Jaws did for oceans, The Bay is a genuinely terrifying eco-horror tale in which you arenâ€™t what you eat, but rather what eats you. From the combined creative team of producer Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Diner), The Bay uses an ingenious assemblage of news reports, surveillance video, home movies and other purportedly user-generated video to expose the never-before-told story of what â€śreallyâ€ť happened in the idyllic small town of Claridge, Maryland over the July 4th weekend, 2009, when an infestation of deadly parasitic â€śisopodsâ€ť made its way into the groundwater supply, effectively wiping out the townâ€™s population in a one-day frenzy of dripping, ripping terror. Mixing elements of old-school insect invasion movies with modern gross-out effects and the new wave of documentary-style â€śfound footageâ€ť horror fare, The Bay will make you squirm, jump and cower in your seat as it takes humankind down a few pegs on the food chain. (Dir. by Barry Levinson, 2012, 85 mins, Rated R, Roadside Attractions) 35mm
