The horror genre is one that routinely gets beat up by some film critics–so much so that the studios rarely show us preview screenings of most of them (This year’s “The Crazies” being a rare exception.)

If they’re not screening the studio horror flicks, this can make it even more difficult for the horror flicks that don’t come out of the big studio funnel to get seen by anybody, except at genre-specific film festivals. A lot of the time, though, it’s the fringe horror movies that work the best.

Today, contributor Abby Olcese looks at one such film–Bruce McDonald’s overlooked zombie flick “Pontypool,” out on DVD now. Check it here.
