This 'found-footage' film is set in 2009 in the town of Chesapeake Bay in Maryland where something has infected the water there. But it's not 100% known what it is or how it is transmitted. But when people start turning up dead and others start to do strange things, fear turns to panic and the town is shut down. The Government confiscate all video footage from every source possible. The Government didn't want you to see this. This is that footage which is put together by a news reporter who was there. Written by

There's an external shot (56:25 into the movie) in total darkness, captioned '8.58pm, July 4th' There's no way it'd be pitch black at that time, on that day of the year in Maryland, where the film is set. The sun only sets at 8.35pm on that day of the year at that latitude. See more »
For a movie that claims to be somehow similar to the Paranormal franchise this is pretty decent. While it still has the obvious flaws (convinience of the "found footage", sound enhancement for some of the horror/shock moments), it does convince with its "story". Plus while it may sound very strange and out there, this is actually more believable than haunting houses, because it actually dives into science (if you'll excuse the pun I'm using).
The acting is OK, the script isn't the best, but overall I liked that it underplayed the main theme, rather than being too on the nose. The effects were good too, characters not acting "rational" is something we almost grew accustomed to.
