Synopsis for Barry Levinson’s ISOPOD released
The words Barry Levinson and eco-horror don’t really go hand in hand, do they?
Well, as the GOOD MORNING VIETNAM director begins prepping his upcoming eco-horror film, ISOPOD, STYD has a synopsis for the film, which clears a few things up:
"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."
The film is allegedly going to be built out of neo-found footage, and with the team of Oren Peli, Steven Schneider and Brian Kavanagh Jones producing (the same team behind PARANORMAL ACTIVITY), this is looking like it’s going to be relatively low on the quality end visually. I absolutely adore this premise, and while I wasn’t a huge fan of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, or a lot of these found footage horror films, this one does really sound like it could be quite an interesting little project. It goes without saying that Levinson is a gifted filmmaker, so hopefully this can be as impeccable as it sounds.
