Pontypool

 (2008)

Pontypool Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Shock-jock radio D.J. Grant Mazzy has, once again, been kicked off the Big City airwaves, and now the only job he can get is the early morning show at CLSY Radio in the small town of Pontypool which broadcasts from the basement of the small town's only church. What begins as another boring day of school bus cancellations due to yet another massive snow storm quickly becomes deadly. Bizarre reports start piling in of people developing strange speech patterns and committing horrendous acts of violence. But there's nothing coming in on the news wires. So... is this really happening? Before long, Grant and the small staff at CLSY find themselves trapped in the radio station as they discover that this insane behavior taking over the town is caused by a deadly virus that may be spreading as a direct result of their radio transmissions... Now they must shut up or die.

For more about Pontypool and the Pontypool Blu-ray release, see Pontypool Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Stephen McHattie, Georgina Reilly, Daniel Fathers, Lisa Houle
Director: Bruce McDonald

Pontypool Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Presented in an aspect ratio of 2.35:1, encoded with MPEG- AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Bruce McDonald's Pontypool arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Kaleidoscope Entertainment.

The high-definition transfer is very strong. Clarity is excellent, fine object detail impressive and contrast levels consistent throughout the entire film. On the other hand, Pontypool has been drained of most of its colors, and as a result it truly looks quite cold (black and gray are the two prevalent colors). Edge-enhancement and macroblocking are not an issue of concern. I also did not spot any severe aliasing, ringing or banding. There are no stability issues to report in this review either. Finally, the transfer is free of large scratches, stains, debris, and dirt. (Note: Even though this Blu-ray disc is marketed as Region-B, it is in fact Region-Free. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no problematic PAL content preceding its main menu).


Pontypool Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1. For the record, Kaleidoscope Entertainment have not provided optional English subtitles for the main feature.

The audio treatment is very good. Even though the rear channels are not overly active, there are some terrific audio effects that really add up quite a bit of flavor to this film (particularity, after the main protagonists lock themselves up in the audio booth). On the other hand, the bass is strong and powerful, and there are a couple of scenes where it will seriously rock your audio system. The dialog is crisp, clear and easy to follow. There are no balance issues with Claude Foisy's music score either. To sum it all up, Pontypool gets a very respectable audio treatment, which I thought was as important as the film's unique visuals.
