Yes, just like United 93
and Snakes on a Plane
are copycats because they both involve passenger jets.
Or was that just a reason to post a link in your promotional thread for The Bay
back to your promotional thread for Contagion
which you used as a promotional thread for a bunch of other peripherally related movies? I don't know why, because you don't actually post any sales links, but I always get the feeling like you're trying to get me to buy Blu-Rays and DVDs.
I'm surprised to see Barry Levinson directing this. I guess his most comparable film would be Sphere
, but that was more cerebral scares (literally) than straight up horror (it was also not very good). But maybe his involvement can elevate this above the usual level of found-footage horror films.
