You have to stop understanding what you're saying! Do you understand?

This intriguing little film posits us with the situation of our very language, the words we speak, becoming infected and turning us into a kind of zombie. A radio DJ in the small town of Pontypool in Canada uncovers this truth and, as the community falls apart around them, he and his cohorts, as well as a doctor who breaks in, have to try to put a stop to the infection.

A fun film that's as much a brain-twister as a terrifying suspense ride, I recommend this when you're in a particular mood, when you're ready to be challenged.

Try not to understand, okay?
