Pontypool will be having it's world premier at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival (and we should have a review for you, yeah!) and is directed by Bruce McDonald (The Tracey Fragments), so I'm quite hopeful even though it sounds like another "hey we're stuck in a building surrounded by zombies" film. "It's set around a small radio station in Pontypool, Ontario. One day our hero, Grant, a talk radio DJ starts to get reports of strange, unnerving acts of violence that are happening in the area. They come realize this because the English language has been infected with a virus." So far so good, now let's get down to what he actually said about the "zombies", or what McDonald's calls "conversationalists". "There are three stages to this to this virus. The first stage is you might begin to repeat a word. Something gets stuck. And usually it's words that are terms of endearment like sweetheart or honey. The second stage is your language becomes scrambled and you can't express yourself properly. The third stage you become so distraught at your condition that the only way out situation you feel, as an infected person, is to try and chew your way through the mouth of another person." So the only way to feel better is to chew through someone elses mouth? Awwwww, you had me at zombie! More details as they come. UPDATE: Stills which show absolutely nothing here.
