From Bruce McDonald, among Canada's most distinctive filmmakers. 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...horrendous acts of violence. But there's nothing on the news wires... "Numerous critics have described PONTYPOOL as 'a thinking person's zombie flick'...I would also add riveting and wonderfully weird…unquestionably the most original horror idea of the past year - perhaps the past several years" –Uncle Creepy, DREAD CENTRAL. "the notion that we are all being driven mad by an incessant verbal deluge makes nasty comic sense" –Holden, NY TIMES. From IFC Films.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Witty and restrained but still taut and funny, this Pontypool is a different breed of low-budget zombie film.
