Se habla Espanol?

"Pontypool" is a creepy sounding Canadian horror movie in which certain words in the English language turn people into zombies who must "chew their way through the mouth of another person."

It's based on a book "Pontypool Changes Everything," and apparently Pontypool is a town in Ontario. And also a really fun word to say.

The only cure for the zombieism? Speak French! Somehow I wonder if this thing wasn't written by the Bloc Quebecois. (Heh, the Village Voice makes that joke too, only better.)

I'm so glad you posted this. My flatmate in university was from Pontypool and believe you me we used to mock her for being from such a backwater town. Now we have even more ammunition!
