Episode 294: Pontypool (2008)

Special Guests: Bruce McDonald, Tony Burgess
Guest Co-Host: Maurice Bursztynski

Mrs. French's cat is missing.

In a rather different take on the typical zombie story, Bruce McDonald's Pontypool (2008) has the English language as the infectious agent which drives people mad. Written by (and based on his novel, Pontypool Changes Everything), the film stars Stephen McHattie as Grant Mazzy, a shock jock from the big city now working in backwater Ontario with his audio engineer Laurel-Ann (Georgina Reilly) and producer Syndey Briar (Lisa Houle).

Mike discusses Pontypool with See Hear's Maurice Bursztynski.

  1. Truly one of my all-time favourite horror-films. Unique and tense as hell, with a wonderful performance by McHattie.
    Thank you for this in-depth Episode.
