31 Nights of Horror V, Night 6: Pontypool


Three sentence review:

How many times have you seen unforgivable crimes against language in a Facebook comments section or felt nauseated by talking heads on any 24 hour news channel? What if language and a person’s perception of it was the source of a virus that literally turns everyone into mindless zombies? This is exactly what happens in Pontypool, a witty and claustrophobic Canadian film about a radio dj trying to make sense of the public crisis that unfolds right outside of his station while he’s live on the air.

How to get extra nerdy:

  1. Barricade yourself in a church basement and have a pretend radio station
  2. Practice your Stephen McHattie voice impression while singing O Canada
