Mrs. French's cat is missing. The signs are posted all over town. "Have you seen Honey?" We've all seen the posters, but nobody has seen Honey the cat. Nobody. Until last Thursday morning, when Miss Colette Piscine swerved her car to miss Honey the cat as she drove across a bridge.

I saw this movie not too long after it was released. As a fan of the zombie/apocalypse/scary disease genre, I was looking forward to this movie but had pretty low expectations. Afterall, for every great movie we often have to sit through a dozen bad films. Pontypool did not disappoint and greatly exceeded my expectations.
To begin, if you watch horror films solely for the blood and guts, then this isn't a movie for you. This movie doesn't follow the typical format of a band of survivors battling their way through hoards of zombies. In fact, you might not even call the infected in this film zombies. Most of the movie takes place in the same location but the concept is innovative and the suspense is brilliant. Basically, the disease in this film isn't some random virus or parasite. The disease is language. The way this is done is really creepy and if you watch it, you'll see what I mean.
As I said, if you want violence and blood and guts, then you might not appreciate this movie. But if you're looking for a psychologically terrifying experience then check out Pontypool. And if you work for Comcast, please put this movie on OnDemand!
