Prescient Pontypool

Pontypool changes foresaw everything.

I watched this indie Canadian movie a long time ago.  So long ago that I rented a DVD of it.  It was an enjoyable and well done take on the zombie genre.

I saw it advertized on the CBC app as a tie-in to Hallowe'en and thought I would watch it again.  It stood up well as a piece of entertainment.  But the message of English being infected by specific words and idioms which cause those affected to turn into zombies mindlessly attacking others is very much on the mark in 2018.Recommend this Post
