The Bay (2012)
Barry Levinson directed this found footage horror story. A ‘journalist’ pieces together footage to reveal what happened on July 4 2009 in a small seaside resort town. Sure this has bad acting and cheap make up but it also has eco horror, boils, vomiting, the cute Dr Abrams (Stephen Kunken), a parasite outbreak, screaming, killer sea lice, an official cover up and an utterly abandoned town. This was good.
“He actually used to run a vacuum-cleaner shop. And then one day he just up and got everyone to vote for him for Mayor.”
“I think it’s every girl’s dream to be Miss Crustacean.”
“He would actually end up treating over 350 patients over the course of that day. And he would die later that night.”
“Are you making this up? This looks photo-shopped.”
“I’ve got a town full of dead bodies.”
“A small town.”
