Screening at MoMA as part of the Canadian Front 2009 Film exhibition.
Pontypool. 2008. Canada. Directed by Bruce McDonald. Screenplay by Tony Burgess, from his novel Pontypool Changes Everything. With Stephen McHattie, Lisa Houle, Georgina Reilly. Maverick filmmaker Bruce McDonald, whose The Tracey Fragments was a highlight of last year's Canadian Front, is back in full force with Pontypool, a taut, smart chamber horror story in which a virus, spread by language, turns listeners into flesh-eating zombies. The action takes place in a radio station whose broadcasts may be a big part of the problem. Courtesy of IFC Films. 96 min.
