Pontypool Reviews:

The zombie horror category is an over-saturated one; and it takes something truly original to remind you why you loved them in the first place. "Pontypool" is such a movie. If you think this is going to be a straightforward zombie flick, it's time to think again.The first half of the film moves slowly but efficiently, as a radio host and the two girls in his squad start to realise that something is most definitely wrong in their normally quiet tiny town. With the aid of some unbelievable cinematography and an clever script, the audience is holed up inside the radio station as reports start to filter through of mysterious happenings which are growing ever more threatening in nature.The second half of the story, when the cause of the danger becomes known and our protagonists are forced to protect themselves, will either impress you (as it did me) or fully lose you. If you're lucky enough to experience the former, you'll realise that this film has far more going for it than your standard 'mindless zombies run around eating brains' movie. It's a cerebral horror movie, designed to create you think as you watch.The acting is solid throughout. Stephen McHattie (who had tiny parts in "Watchmen" and "A History Of Violence" amongst others, and whose voice and appearance reminds me of Lance Henriksen) is perfectly cast in the central role, and is backed by nice performances by Lisa Houle and Georgina Reilly. As most of the early scenes of rising dread come from their characters listening to others calling the radio show, their reactions are essential to maintaining suspense and they do a wonderful job.If you're a fanatic of more clever horror fare (such as the earlier work of David Cronenberg), you'd be advised to take a look here. It's a film that defies expectations and provides a refreshing injection into a category of film that has become increasingly tired as of late.Highly recommended.


I saw this movie at the Toronto movie festival, and I gotta tell it was superb. It's a zombie flick that isn't a zombie flick--it really breaks out of the genre. At times honestly hilarious and truly suspenseful at others, it was one of my top three movies I saw at the festival. The IMDb synopsis doesn't do it justice. The main hero loves to throw out references to linguistics and literary critics, and the "transmission" of the virus fits perfectly. Stephen McHattie did a wonderful job, as did Lisa Houle and Georgina Reilly. Even though the "we're stuck in a building surrounded by zombies" is a well-used setup, Pontypool is so various from most zombie films that it doesn't feel hackneyed. Altogether, it's a fully fresh, exciting movie. If you can receive your hands on it, watch it!


Pontypool was an nice movie for a number of reasons.The storyline pays a respectful homage to horror greats like Night of the Living Dead and 28 Days soon without ever becoming cliché. The approach to the mass "infection" was something that I never saw coming. The acting was perfect and I got the genuine impression I was listening to talk/news radio. The authenticity of the radio broadcast and culminating happenings were enough to now draw me into the anxiety that the characters felt,which tells a lot considering the 2-dimensional feel of the majority of films I have seen as of late. I highly suggest this film to any true sci-fi/horror fanatic that is fed up with the standard fair.Also, watch the final frames after the credits! Nice job. 10/10
