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?

TDcore's Horror Journal 2019: March (14 movies items)

" This little flick has become quite the cult sensation over the years, and for good reason. It's an original, oddly disturbing and incredibly disorienting film. It takes a "Twilight Zone" esque premise and stretches it out to feature length, with varying degrees of success, but remains engrossing throughout. The premise of a "linguistic virus" spread through "infected" words is a stroke of pure genius, and the setting of a radio station makes the whole thing even more brilliant. The small cast "

Film Journal 2019 (225 movies items)

"I've suffered from bi-yearly-ish severe anxiety attacks since I was nine years old. There's no real connection between them in a contextual sense, though they tend to happen more when I've had a monotonous day. The real commonality is the state that I am in when I wake up in the middle of one, which is how they always go. There's that indeterminable feeling that something is wrong with the world. The laws of physics have been broken or something of the like. The only way of self-expression in th"

The 50 Greatest Horror Movies of the 21st Century (50 movies items)

"As rabble-rousing talk radio host Grant Mazzy, Stephen McHattie has a voice like a baritone snake, equal parts silky and sinister, and it’s very pointedly the main attraction of Bruce McDonald’s Pontypool. When his A.M. gig reporting school closings and interviewing clownish local theater troupes is interrupted by reports of unruly mobs tearing people to shreds with their mouths, he and the radio station’s producer and technician must sense of the apparent mayhem brewing outside, the cause"

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: May (17 movies items)

"May 18 "Your friend is sick. I've seen a lot of this lately. She doesn't know it yet, but she's hunting us." I really liked the whole concept of this film. It has a very original storyline and for the most part they executed it well. I found the whole thing to be very intriguing and it does have a very good script and acting to back it up. However, this movie kind of lost me near the end and wasn't sure what to make of it, but for the most part it's a really solid film and it's worth checkin"

350 From The 1st Decade Of The New Millennium (350 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 believabilty (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 warrant a place on this list.
