Barry Levinson’s The Bay Actually Looks Pretty Good


I can’t say I’m a big Barry Levinson fan.  He’s made some decent films over the years but I’ve never really been able to get into many of his movies, so normally when I see his name attached to a new film, I don’t really think anything of it.  That being said, after watching the trailer for his new found footage creature feature, The Bay, I have to say that I’m rather intrigued.

The film stars Kristin Connolly, of Cabin in the Woods fame, and is about a town whose water supply becomes toxic.  The mayor refuses to let the town know of the contaminated water and, as a result, a plague breaks out that allows mutated parasites to take control of the town residents’ bodies and minds.  Sounds a bit like a riff on Invasion of the Body Snatchers, huh?  Either way, I’m interested in checking out.  Maybe Levinson will make a fan out of me yet.

The Bay opens on November 2.

    You’re welcome. You may be familiar with some of Levinson’s previous films like Good Morning Vietnam, Rain Man, Sphere, etc.

    This isn’t a film I’ve heard of (nor am I familiar with Barry Levinson) but it does look good. I quite like the style, and the plot sounds pretty good too.
    Reminds me of The Crazies; another good idea which I felt didn’t quite work as well as it could have done.
    Hopefully The Bay will be a success. Thanks for bringing it to my attention 🙂
