” …several choices in terms of editing and cuts — as well as character motivations and reactions — left me scratching my head […] Still, The Bay of Silence is a fun popcorn thriller at times, even if the film is uneven. Bang is quite interesting to watch, whether he’s got great source material to work from or not.” Screen Anarchy


In the UK, Signature Entertainment is releasing The Bay of Silence on DVD and Digital HD on 28th September 2020. Order via
