Pontypool (2008)



A zombie movie without zombies ( well 5 minutes at the end ain't much )

30 minutes into the movie , nothing was happening and i almost stopped it . Yet i'm glad i didn't because that was one of the most cerebral horror movie i watched in a while.

Based on a book that was adapted into a radioplay , this film is great on an atmopheric level. It's not gory or scary in the old meaning of traditional horror movies but it brings "uneasy" to a new level.

Basically , the movie is all about a zombie invasion felt thru the eyes/hear of a local radio station. The camera almost never leaves the radion station so you kinda get drawn into their own spiraling madness.

In an oversaturated genre , this movie was a breath of fresh air.

Bonus point because it's canadian and actually takes place in Ontario

8/10
