The first trailer and poster for director Barry Levinson’s (Rain Man, Good Morning Vietnam) found footage horror film The Bay have landed online.  The pic centers on a small Chesapeake Bay town where an unprecedented biological disaster is unleashed from the bay’s waters.  The trailer plays like a cross between Paranormal Activity and Contagion, with a little Dawn of the Dead thrown in for good measure.  The jump to the found footage genre is an unexpected move from Levinson, but the horror film actually looks pretty affecting.  In the place of fake jump scares and “shadow ghosts” prevalent in most found footage pics is a real, tangible terror that wreaks havoc on the city.  Fair warning, if bed bugs and such give you the creeps, you may or may not be slightly terrified by this trailer.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer and poster.  The film stars Will Rogers and Christopher DenhamThe Bay will be available in theaters and on iTunes on November 2nd.

Here’s a synopsis for The Bay:

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.
