So after reviewing Word Wars last week, we totally had words on the brain. What better to follow up a documentary on Scrabble than to jump in to a FREAKING WEIRD movie about word zombies?
Canadians come up with the oddest zombie flicks, so sit back and watch what you say, the "virus" is spread through understanding...
Special thanks to fans Dale Lloyd and @Alexlyons for recommending this flick!
Our review caught the attention of Mr. Tony Burgess (the writer of Pontypool Changes Everything and the screenplay for the Pontypool film), and here's what he had to say about us!
best review of Pontypool I have heard yet. The difficulty in `getting it', `liking it', even recommending it is supposed to be the pleasure. Especially the question over whether everything works or nothing works and the choices you have to make as a viewer to determine one over the other. It's a pleasure i look for when i hunt a specific kind of film and it was definitely something I thought while writing 'er.
so thanks for the awesome review. I don't normally pop in doctor thru a window style on reviewers but this was so good.
Woot! He likes us! He REALLY likes us!
