From Oscar®-winning director Barry Levinson (Best Director, Rain Man, 1988) and the producers ofParanormal Activity and Insidious comes The Bay, a horror story of a sleepy town infected by a deadly menace.  A masterful new envisioning of the found footage genre, The Bay arrives on DVD and Digital Download March 5 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. 


An official selection of the New York and Toronto International Film Festivals, this pulse-pounding tale of a quaint seaside town plunged into absolute terror stars Kristen Connolly (The Cabin in the Woods) and Christopher Denham (Argo, Shutter Island). The DVD includes audio commentary by director Barry Levinson and a featurette, "Into the Unknown: Barry Levinson on The Bay."  The Baywill be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $27.98.


Two million fish washed ashore. One thousand blackbirds dropped from the sky. On July 4, 2009 a deadly menace swept through the quaint seaside town of Claridge, Maryland, but the harrowing story of what happened that Independence Day has never been told - until now. The authorities believed they had buried the truth about the tragedy that claimed over 700 human lives. Now, three years later, a reporter has emerged with footage revealing the cover-up and an unimaginable killer: a mysterious parasitic outbreak. Told from the perspective of those who were there and saw what happened, The Bay unfolds over 24 hours through people's iPhones, Androids, 911 calls, web cams and whatever else could be used to document the nightmare in Claridge. With a screenplay by Michael Wallach and a story by Barry Levinson and Michael Wallach; the film is directed by Barry Levinson.

    Is this a direct to DVD release? I saw the trailer several times in the theater, but I don't recall that it actually ever opened.
    See you at the pah-ty, Richter.
