New on DVD, Blu-ray and streaming this week, summertime action, a horror-comedy for kids, some bootlegging with bruising action, and creepy scares. ...
“I don't want you YouTubing!” the panicked mother snipes at her daughter as they sit in backed-up traffic, trying to escape the summer berg of Claridge, Maryland. “Did you just call it YouTubing?” the embarrassed daughter wise-asses back, adding a note wholly unnecessary for the plot but rather indicative of how 'The Bay' goes that little extra step from being just another gross-out horror pic.
'The Bay' had a small but noteworthy presence at New York Comic-Con 2012, and, along with the folks behind 'Carrie,' 'The Walking Dead,' 'Silent Hill' and the like, held a panel where the crew chatted about the upcoming horror flick and premiered new footage.
While the IGN theater at the Javits Center was filled to the brim with eager fans, folks could check out the happenings directly from the online live stream, but the featured footage was only available to those in attendance. Thankfully, said footage is now available for you to watch.
A few months ago, Comic-Con 2012 in San Diego was packed with comic book nerds, cosplayers, TV and movie fanatics, and members of the press, all of whom were bustling from location to location trying to see as many events and panels as possible. Though we aimed to give you the best possible recaps of everything that happened during the private panels for 'The Walking Dead,' 'Game of Thrones,' Marvel Studios and the like, it sure would have made our jobs a lot easier to watch them streaming live from our laptops. That's something New York Comic-Con is trying to do better this year.

Now, a new clip from the film has made its way online.
