I saw it at a screening with McHattie in attendance. I was handed a flyer a week before the screening while in line for the Hot Fuzz/Shawn of the Dead screening.

The panderer said a new horror film was coming out, but the pitch indicated it was starring the actor who played the original Night Owl because at that time we still cared about the Watchmen film.

It’s definitely a neat film. I’ve never read the book it’s based on, but I bought another Burgess book at Word on the Street.

I saw the trailer back around the time it came out and thought it looked neat. I just watched it last night moments after reading this, and I agree, it’s a fairly nifty movie, and I’m not a horror fan, usually.

I loved how they did something that as far as I could tell was entirely new to the zombie genre, and often recommend this to people who haven’t seen it yet.

Out of curiosity, have you seen Session 9? If not, it’s worth seeing.

Pontypool is a good movie, but I think I liked this old episode from the 80′s Twilight Zone on the subject better (which is less zombies, and more… well, I’ll let you watch).

It’s a bit campy and all, but we’re also talking about a segment on a TV show from 30 years ago, in a discussion on “zombie” films. A bit of camp is permitted I’d think.

And I’ll second “Session 9″.

Coincidentally, I put this in my netflix queue two weeks ago after a wiki-walk on tv tropes brought it back to my attention. I think I’m going to have to bump it up to the head of the queue.

I highly recommend the book the movie is based on, it is absolutely nuts http://www.amazon.ca/Pontypool-Changes-Everything-Tony-Burgess/dp/1550228811
