Barry Levinson throws his hat into found footage arena with ‘The Bay’ trailer

With a repertoire of directing credits under his belt that includes films such as Rain Man, The Natural, Wag the Dog, and Bandits, Barry Levinson is not a director many people associate with the horror genre, and even less so with the found footage sub-genre. However, he aims to change that with his latest venture, The Bay, which explores the effects of a viral outbreak in a small town. The movie is penned by first time writer Michael Wallach, and stars Kristen Connolly, Anthony Reynolds, Jane McNeill, and Christopher Denham. A trailer for the movie, which will be screening at TIFF 2012 during the Midnight Madness part of the festival, has now been released, and can be seen below.

If there’s one movie fact I’ve learnt after all these years, it’s that Employee of The Month is to Office Space what fast food is to fresh fruit.
