This week on The Bay fanhub, we celebrate - if that’s the right word for it in this case - the world of infectious diseases in thrillers and horror movies. A vampire, a werewolf, a masked murderer or a horde of zombies… All these things we can quantify, we can imagine ourselves, armed with the knowledge of how to kill monsters, surviving the running time.
But when the threat comes from within, when the invading army passes into you as you sip from an infected coffee cup in a cafe or via a cool breeze and you’re on borrowed time… Well, that’s a different, more horrific kind of nightmare.
The Bay is at the real-life terror end of the genre. Using police camera footage, local news broadcasts, SMS messages and Skype chat to weave a tale of absolute social breakdown in the face of rapidly replicating parasitic take over. Other films in this list range from the lowly exploitation movies to major Hollywood disaster flicks but they all share one common trait…. The horror is inside you.
