Watching 'Pontypool' is an experience akin to being raped in the ears whilst achieving Nirvana; the pain is horrendous, but the whole experience is just too unique to not be beautiful. With 'Pontypool', you marvel at it's claustrophobic storytelling, but soon you find yourself loosing your precious sanity as both the diegetic repetition of words and the mimetic repetition of scenes fills you with fury at how easily and justifiably the filmmakers are getting away with disorienting you. It's constricted narrative conveys a central theme that things loose their meaning when they are perpetually repeated, which suggests that as the film looses meaning it gains more of it. It's practically checkmate against nearly all types of detraction.

I kept waiting & waiting for something to happen & it never did.You know through the whole movie something is happening outside & I guess the 1 good thing about Pontypool was that it kept me watching & waiting to see if something is going to happen on the inside but it never does.That's what was so disappointing

An interesting take on the zombie genre. This time it's the English language that cause people to turn into mindless killers instead of biting. Although most of the action remains off-screen, don't reject the film. It's very tense and claustrophobic; make sure to stay through the credits too!
