Synopsis :

Shock jock 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. 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 wire. 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 being caused by a deadly virus being spread through the English language itself.
