Before it arrives in theaters November 2 from Roadside Attractions, Bloody Disgusting’s Mike Pereira caught the world premiere of Barry Levinson’s The Bay at the Midnight Madness portion of the Toronto International Film Festival. The pic is a Found Footage thriller where a biological disaster is unleashed from the waters of the Chesapeake Bay causing a mass infection.
“One has to applaud Levinson for stepping out of his comfort zone… Unfortunately what brings the movie down is his novice approach at horror tactics such as jump scares and tension-building. While it may work on the average folk who have never seen a horror film in their life, it won’t fool a hardcore fan by a long shot.
“The Bay is an admirable but ultimately dull thriller.”
