Pontypool

One of the things that often helps horror movies is when certain moments and images are left up to the imagination. If something is left up to the imagination rather than being displayed (however graphically) by the camera, it’s a lot creepier because each individual viewer is going to picture the horrific image in a different way depending on what he/she finds scary. This is why it’s so great... read more

Shock jock Grant Mazzy has, once again, been kicked-off the Big City airwaves and now the only job he can get is the early morning show at CLSY Radio in the small town of Pontypool which broadcasts from the basement of the small town’s only church. What begins as another boring day of school bus cancellations, due to yet another massive snow storm, quickly turns deadly. Bizarre reports start piling in of people developing strange speech patterns and evoking horrendous acts of violence. But there’s nothing coming in on the news wires. So… is this really happening?

My Top 20 Halloween Favorites: Zombies (20 movies items)

" In the snowy small town of Pontypool, there's something in the air colder than the winter chill. Something that's transforming all the townspeople into the walking dead. A different take on the zombie genre, that for me personally stretches a bit thin in terms of believeabilty (even with the buffer of suspended belief}, but still, the efforts in it's unique approach {along with Stephen McHattie's strong camera presence) was enough to warrent a place on this list.

Amazing Underrated Obscure Bizarre Films PART 11 (50 movies items)

"See the thing is I absolutely love the first hour. It's irrefutably original and brilliant but the final 30ish minutes tries to be too smart for its own good and ends up being dumb as shit. Great premise: a zombie film but from the perspective of the radio station that receives all the bizarre reports of people eating people and the mayhem that follows. Flick is a must see just for that first hour though. "

Best Horror Movies Of 2009 (30 movies items)

" Pontypool's setup verges on brilliance: a radio DJ (Stephen McHattie, in a star-making performance), who makes his living with his words, must contend with a deadly virus that's somehow spread through the speech. Furthering the irony is the fact that the only way he can find out what's going on outside is through audio reports by the station's roving reporter. It's a lyrical, intelligent, admirably restrained film that turns viewers' imaginations upon themselves as they picture the mayhem that"

Dear Cinema Diary - Vol 3 E2 - February 2012 (34 movies items)

" Well, for a horror film that all the action takes place inside a radio station... it isn't bad and I did actually manage to find some interest in the film. Ah but your time might be better spent else where and NO this is NOT a zombie film. Gah... do people even know what zombies are anymore or have they gone the way of sparkly vampires? :P"
