The Bay 2012

In cinemas near you November 2nd 2012

I decided to take a break on the weekend to write about this movie, which has been anyways lurking in the back of my mind since a couple of weeks now.

The Bay is a new Sci-fi/Horror movie produced by Automatic Entertainment and Hydraulx.

Directed by Barry Levinson

Full cast details etc. Can be found on http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1713476/

Now I am a great Horror, Sci-fi and Action fan, so obviously I’m curious, but the thing that strikes me the most on this movie was already in the Poster! The human skull under an X-ray and a weird bug in his mouth, now I’m a bit disappointed already since like this they give away all fun from the movie.

Because from this you can already imagine what is coming, a lot of people are afraid of this but or should I say Parasite, yes there is a Parasite like this in our WORLD, but it mostly infests fish!

Its name is Cymothoa Exigua. Now the best way to describe this bug, in its raw face and details I leave to the people on this page who grasp the full nature of this Parasite and other creatures, even maybe in a funny way!

But basically again yes this Parasite really exists, but no it does not Infect humans, only fish, there are many funny videos on youtube or fake articles about it being found in humans.

Yes some truth to Sci-fi is always good, but showing it directly in the poster? I see no originality in this, especially if you have a premise such as Sci-fi, you can take it much further than this!

Now in a way I’m sorry for if I spoiled some ones lunch or movie experience! I will still go and see this film, but it better be mind blowing. Plus you can take Cymothoa Exigua to a sicker stage than it already is, as mentioned people some people fear it now! So these people I think will have the most fun!

But once more, its sad that there is less originality in this, I mean half the people probably know this Parasite and will call FAKE while watching the movie, even in Sci-fi premises!

I hope we can dare to be surprised and maybe entertained by this Movie!
