After a decade-plus of shakycam flicks, I am sure I am not the only one who feels like they have seen it all. From creepy trees, to bigfoot, trolls, ghosts, locked asylums, distorted demons, and doors closing themselves, if you can name it – it’s been done (to varying degrees of success). However, a new thriller opening at TIFF this Fall looks to take us somewhere we at UTG never saw coming.
The Bay chronicles a tiny Maryland town that falls victim to a mysterious water-based flesh eating virus in the Summer of 2009. Instead of following a single person or group through this health emergency, viewers are given a view of the entire town’s struggle through the use of security cams, confessionals, and various handheld devices. I don’t want to give too much away, but I will say this is not going to be a film for the faint of heart. You can view the trailer after the jump.
If the film is even half as interesting as the trailer, The Bay will likely find nationwide distribution before Christmas. Stay tuned for updates, release info, and more in the coming months.
