Pontypool ★★★★

Hooptober Se7en – disease-based film (2/3)
I’ve wanted to see Pontypool for awhile now and glad I finally had a chance! The film focuses on an early morning radio show hosted by a “take no prisoners,” cowboy hat wearing guy who got fired from his last job, his two partners running the fort and logistics in their secluded radio station, and Ken reporting from the Sunshine Chopper (aka his car parked on a hill). They begin to get word of strange happenings in the town of Pontypool and our host Grant Mazzy must put it all together while on the air and away from the outside world. Pontypool does a fantastic job of creating an anxious and claustrophobic mood just through audio reports of the events going on outside of the station.
