27. Pontypool -- 2008 -- starring some people.
This is a Zombie movie. I generally don't watch zombie movies, a few unique ones, but overall, I skip the undead as I find them predictable and boring. ha! Anyway, this movie kept coming up in my list on Netflix, so decided I would give it a go.
It wasn't bad. Zombies, humor, weirdness as it is based on a book by Tony Burgess (Anthony for A Clockwork Orange.) Any of you who have read clockwork know it's a futuristic language mind f. I was perturbed at the first half of the book as I thought Burgess was making fun of readers by making up this language and knowing the sheep out in the world would buy it and call it art. BUT, by the time I got to the second half of the book, I realized how amazing this story was. Fantastic and weird. Oh Dana Jean, ye of little faith.
Pontypool is also about language. People are turned into zombies by a virus infecting the English language and it starts in the small town of Pontypool in Canada. A shock jock and station manager try to figure it out to save the world.
