the bay (2012)
a small town on the chesapeake bay has a problem. its the 4th of july and people are getting sick. boils and blistering skin, fevers that won't break and the bodies are piling up. the story of that day is told via skype and found footage by the only reporter on the scene and one of very few survivors. she tells a story of environmental disaster and evolutionary terror that doesn't seem so unrealistic. a third of the way through this movie i put down the work i was doing and just watched, completely riveted. i jumped a few timse, got queasy more than a few times and enjoyed myself. i'm as surprised as you are.
