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.
