A young woman narrates the opening of The Bay by introducing us to the town of Claridge, Maryland and what it used to be like...before. Yet, the inciting event remains hidden. We're told that the confiscated footage on the events of July 4th have finally been recovered thanks to a website that goes after government leaks. Sadly, the scenes of sweet small town life run too long. It's an attempt to make the viewer care--or at least feel concern--about the town and it's inhabitants. But, really it just delays the mystery and slows the pace. The woman's voice also has a pitch that grates on the ear. When we get into the meaty part of the plot, it's revealed through interspersed footage from different sources. It's not easy to follow...until the screaming starts.
