Get your last gulps of water in because after you catch Barry Levinson’s “The Bay,” you may never indulge in the tap again – unless you have a heavy-duty purifier.
“The Bay” focuses on the town of Claridge, Maryland. Located right on the Chesapeake Bay, the town’s Independence Day festivities include a dunk tank, swimming, crab-eating contest and more, with some water guzzling in between to beat the summer heat. Too bad their neglectful mayor opts to brush the mysterious death of a pair of oceanographers under the rug, otherwise citizens might have been able to avoid ingesting what’s actually a toxic breeding ground for deadly isopods.
Just before unleashing the nightmare on the New York Comic Con crowd, Levinson sat down for a quick one-on-one chat. Check out what he had to say about the story’s horrifying factual roots, only using consumer cameras, one young actress’ evolution from day player to prime character and more.
