Pontypool Changes EverythingBook - 1998
The island community of Pontypool, Ontario, is a remote, cold, peaceful place where people live relatively uneventful lives day-by-day; Les Reardon, for example is checking his property for poachers while he thinks about tonight’s opening performance of Pontypool Players’ King Lear (directed by himself), and tries not to dwell upon the various personal problems that have recently beset him. A few minutes later, a hunter on Les’ land is having his face chewed off, and nothing will ever be the same again. An epidemic virus terrorizes the inhabitants, causing them to strike out on murderous rampages. The virus is caught through conversation and, once contracted, leads its host on a strange journey into another world where the undead roam the streets of the smallest towns and largest cities, hungry for human flesh.
