A psychological thriller in which a deadly virus infects a small Ontario town.
Witty and restrained but still taut and funny, this Pontypool is a different breed of low-budget zombie film.
This low-budget picture is a little too claustrophobic, and it grows tedious. The ominous, overbearing musical score tries but fails to jack up the tension.
For a while, this claustrophobic little horror movie is a dark little treat.
Alarmingly intelligent and deeply disorienting, Pontypool plays as a radically different film upon subsequent viewings, its metaphor-filled dialogue seeming to shift and alter in meaning with every scene.
This cerebral horror movie plays Scrabble with the genre's cinematic lingo.
If you're a devotee of the deranged mind of Canadian indie auteur Bruce McDonald, then I can just tell you that he's made a horror movie (kind of) and that Pontypool is it.
A winning combination of shuddery suspense and intelligent observations.
However shrewdly contrived to keep its budget low, Pontypool, set almost entirely in a basement radio station, is a zombie flick sans bite.
A horror flick that's all talk and (almost) no action? The risk pays off better than you'd think.
As a horror fan, this high-minded Talk Radio of the Living Dead left me as cold as a Pontypool winter.
