Pontypool

Shock jock Grant (Stephen McHattie) has once again been kicked off Big City air waves, so now it's the early shift at CLSY Radio, broadcasting from the basement of the only church in tiny Pontypool.

A day that begins with a litany of school closings due to a massive storm quickly turns deadly. Bizarre reports come in: people speaking in tongues and horrendous acts of violence. But there's nothing on the news wires...

From Bruce McDonald, among Canada's most distinctive filmmakers.

"Numerous critics have described PONTYPOOL as 'a thinking person's zombie flick'...I would also add riveting and wonderfully wei...unquestionably the most original horror idea of the past year - perhaps the past several years." - Uncle Creepy, DreadCentral

"The notion that we are all being driven mad by an incessant verbal deluge makes nasty comic sense." - Holden, NY Times
