Reel World: Rewind #029 – Pontypool

On this episode of Reel World: Rewind…
A cerebral zombie movie taking place at a small, local radio station in rural Canada about the zombie-like infection being spread by language has perhaps been the most difficult episode ever to record in the history of Rewind. Not one, not two, but count it, three times, Josh Crabb and Blake Collier have tried to record an episode on Bruce McDonald’s 2008 horror movie, Pontypool. If you are seeing and hearing this, make sure to check out your window for a zombie apocalypse. If everything seems normal and safe, then listen to Blake and Josh talk about this movie’s prophetic foretelling of the social media echo chamber, the power of words to destroy or redeem, and how the words we use are shaped by and shape meaning.
