On this week’s Horror Podclass we are doing a deep dive into the 2008 zombie horror movie Pontypool, language, philosophy, and rhetoric. Recording this was way more fun than watching the State of the Union, that's for darn sure. Pontypool is easily one of our favorite movies, but not everyone liked it. As evidenced by our anonymous Amazon reviewer, not everyone thought it was a zombie movie. Whether you liked it or hated it, the movie does offer up some very interesting critiques on language and at least makes you think.
Connect with us Tyler and Mike at:
Tyler is currently reading Kinfolk by Matt Kurtz.
Recommended by both Thomas Ligotti and Jeff VanderMeer, read The Society Tiger by Jean Ferry on Weird Fiction Review.
Haig Bosmajian not only has a cool name, but he wrote the textbook on using language to enforce power structures.
So, Mike totally nerds out and talks about tabletop role playing games. Eclipse Phase is without a doubt, one of the coolest.
Next Week: Overlord and the horrors of war.
