Critic Reviews of "Pontypool"Hollywood ReporterDecember 17, 2009
This low-budget picture is a little too claustrophobic, and it grows tedious. The ominous, overbearing musical score tries but fails to jack up the tension.Time OutOctober 16, 2009
This cerebral horror movie plays Scrabble with the genre's cinematic lingo.VarietySeptember 01, 2009
However shrewdly contrived to keep its budget low, Pontypool, set almost entirely in a basement radio station, is a zombie flick sans bite.Newark Star-LedgerJune 05, 2009
For a while, this claustrophobic little horror movie is a dark little treat.Salon.comJune 05, 2009
If you're a devotee of the deranged mind of Canadian indie auteur Bruce McDonald, then I can just tell you that he's made a horror movie (kind of) and that Pontypool is it.New York Daily NewsMay 29, 2009
A horror flick that's all talk and (almost) no action? The risk pays off better than you'd think.rec.arts.movies.reviewsApril 30, 2016
Tightly scripted (Tony Burgess) and directed (Bruce McDonald), but Stephen McHattie's Mazzy is the star!Little White LiesDecember 01, 2010
Alarmingly intelligent and deeply disorienting, Pontypool plays as a radically different film upon subsequent viewings, its metaphor-filled dialogue seeming to shift and alter in meaning with every scene.sbs.com.auAugust 09, 2010
A winning combination of shuddery suspense and intelligent observations.Georgia StraightJuly 06, 2010
As a horror fan, this high-minded Talk Radio of the Living Dead left me as cold as a Pontypool winter.Movie MetropolisJanuary 30, 2010
Its a mighty strange beast, an intellectual B-movie that offers equal parts semiotics and projectile gore.Seanax.comJanuary 27, 2010
Laurie Anderson would be proud: language is a virus in [this] zombie(-esque) thriller set almost entirely within the walls of a basement radio station.
