Shock Till You Drop has posted a video interview with Academy Award-winning director Barry Levinson (Bugsy, Rain Man, Diner) about his new found-footage horror film The Bay.
Here's a synopsis: It's the 4th of July in the small Chesapeake Bay community of Claridge, Maryland and people are starting to die as news reporter Donna Thompson (Kether Donohue) recounts the horrifying details of a viral outbreak as they unfold.
The film was produced by Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) and the Strause Brothers (Skyline). This is the first horror film for Levinson, whose only come close with the sci-fi film Sphere.
His film premiered at the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto International Film Festival, where the interview takes place. He also talked about his decision to make a horror movie, the found footage format, his long-delayed Gotti: In the Shadow of My Father, the HBO Phil Spector Biopic starring Al Pacino (which has already filmed) and The Day The Laughter Stopped, an HBO movie about silent actor Fatty Arbuckle.
The Bay will be released in select cities by Roadside Attractions, and on VOD on November 2. It will also play at the 50th Annual New York Film Festival on September 29th, as part of their new Midnight Movies track.
