A psychological thriller in which a deadly virus infects a small Ontario town.
Pontypool is one of the most original take on the zombie genre ever. And the film’s true brilliance lies in cause of the “zombie” infection. Without giving it all away, the revelation it’s absolutely clever, unexpected and thought provoking. Overall this is a well written and original creepy horror, fuelled by a tight direction and great performances. A low-budget horror film that defies all expectations.
