Horror Invades Georgetown in The Bay

Published

on

Barry Levinson’s The Bay is shooting as we speak and the ever-so-vigilant DC reader Avery sent us over information on this upcoming eco-thriller to share by the boatload!

The film will star Will Rogers (Happy New Year) as “Alex,” Stephen Kunken (All Good Things, “Law & Order”) as “Dr. Abrams,” Kether Donohue as “Donna,” Frank Deal (“Fringe,” Antibody) as “Mayor John Stockman,” Christopher Denham (Shutter Island) as “Sam,” and lastly, Kristen Connolly (Bicentennial Man) as “Stephanie”.

Levinson will be in the director’s chair working from a script by Michael Wallach. Jason Blum, Oren Peli and Steven Schneider, along with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, are producing.

The news bites come from several different articles which appeared in The Georgetown Times. Dig on them below, and click here for a behind-the-scenes image gallery.

  • Extras from Andrews, Georgetown, Pawleys Island and Myrtle Beach showed their Blue Crab eating skills Tuesday as day two of filming for “The Bay” began on Front Street. As director Barry Levinson called for action, the group of participants ate Maryland Blue Crabs at a fictional festival in the town of Claridge, Maryland.
  • As real Georgetown Mayor Jack Scoville stood near one of the vending booths, Frank Deal, portraying Claridge Mayor John Stockman, shook hands and welcomed people to the festival supposedly held on the Fourth of July. “This is a dream come true, working with Barry Levinson,” Deal said. “It doesn’t get any better than this. I’m having a great time. The townspeople are phenomenal.
  • After that, the action really started as residents of Claridge began to become ill from eating Blue Crabs. The aftermath of the ecological disaster will be filmed Wednesday, production employees said.
  • A frantic traffic jam was filmed Monday night on the bridges leading out of Georgetown.
  • The action on Tuesday featured many local residents, who set up booths during the fictional festival.
  • Many people posed with Levinson for pictures, including Miss Teen Charleston, Keyla Childs. Childs portrayed “Miss Crustacean,” a beauty queen, during the pretend festival. SPOILER: Her mother said Miss Crustacean meets a sad end during the movie, which they just learned this week. END SPOILER
  • Glenn Peison, set director for the film, said part of the movie will center around a “4th of July type fair” which will stretch along a large portion of Front Street. He said he is looking for food and game vendors as well as people who can set up arts and craft tents. Anything you would find at a hometown festival, he said. That will include jumping castles and dunking booths. “We are looking for people to set up tents that sell knick-knacks and T-shirts,” Peison said.
  • One of the scenes being shot will be people having a good time at the festival before the tragic event hits the town. This scene will include a crab eating contest. Then, scenes will be shot showing Front Street and the festival area after the tragedy. “It will be like a ghost town with litter all over the place,” Peison said.
  • Eldridge said the science fiction thriller film is being shot with hand-held cameras and will depict a single day in the town. Much the same as the television show “24” centers around the events that take place in a one-day period.
  • Synopsis
    The quaint seaside town of Chesapeake Bay thrives on water; it is the lifeblood of the community. When two biological researchers from France find a staggering level of toxicity in the water, they attempt to alert the mayor, but he refuses to create a panic in the docile town. As a result, a deadly plague is unleashed, turning the people of Chesapeake Bay into hosts for a mutant breed of parasites that take control of their minds and eventually their bodies. A brutal and harrowing creature feature for the 21st century, THE BAY chronicles the descent of a small town into absolute terror.

    PG-13 or R? The Strangers: Prey at Night Gets Official MPAA Rating

    Published

    on

    Earlier this week we let you guys know that there is a killer The Strangers: Prey at Night fan art competition going on and you can read all the details on that right HERE.

    But today we have some cool (if expected) news that The Strangers: Prey At Night hs officially received an R-rating from the MPAA.

    The sequel has been rated R for “horror violence and terror throughout, and for language” and I think that makes about as much sense as we could have expected.

    For those who are interested in such bits of trivia, the original The Strangers was rated R for “violence/terror and language” so there you go! Impress your friends with MPAA trivia.

    Would The Strangers: Prey at Night getting a PG-13 have affected your enthusiasm for the upcoming film? Let us know below!

    The Stranger: Prey at Night is directed by Johannes Roberts (47 Meters Down) from a script by Bryan Bertino and Ben Ketai. It stars Martin Henderson, Christina Hendricks, Bailee Madison, and Lewis Pullman.

    The film hits March 9, 2018.

    Synopsis:
    A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts directs this horror film inspired by the 2008 smash hit The Strangers.

    Artist Reimagines Superheroes as Tim Burton Illustrations

    Published

    on

    The world of Tim Burton has always been full of imagination and wonder built on a surreal and often horrific foundation. Films like Beetlejuice and Sleepy Hollow capture the imagination with stunning visuals, all based on the mind of the visionary director. Burton’s artwork was also featured in his illustrated poetry book The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy & Other Stories.

    Burton’s work has not only amazed viewers for over three decades, it’s also been an inspiration to countless artists and creators. Enter Los Angeles-by-way-of-Russia artist and animator Andrew Tarusov, whose work has been used by companies such as Cosmopolitan, Disney, 20th Century Fox, Maxim, and more. In a series he simply calls “Tim Burton’s Superheros”, Tarusov took 10 of the biggest comic book characters and gave them a dark twist that is 100% befitting of Burton’s style.

    You can see a gallery of these images below. To see more of Tarusov’s work, head on over to his official website.
