Dead Air (2009) Poster

Logan Burnhardt is the ego-king of the airwaves, but his unflappable persona is put to the test when a terrorist bio-attack unleashes a plague of flesh-ripping maniacs on Los Angeles.

| PONTYPOOL mixed with 28 DAYS LATER
After reading a brief description of this film I thought someone had remade PONTYPOOL already. Well it is not a remake...but it really, really, borrows heavily from it. It also borrows quite a bit from 28 DAYS LATER.

Terrorist simultaneously detonate chemical bombs at major sporting events across the United States. The chemicals turn people into highly contagious, rabid, homicidal maniacs. A radio talk show host (Bill Mosely) and his crew are broadcasting live while the events unfold.

Most of the events take place at the radio station ala PONTYPOOL. Luckily the virus is man-made and not verbal (a plot point of PONTYPOOL that, while original, just didn't work for me). The infected have bleeding eyes, run fast and can infect you with just a scratch ala 28 DAYS LATER. So basically this movies takes the best parts of both films and mixes them together for its own purposes.

Over all I thought this was a great, entertaining movie. It moves along quickly and has some truly disturbing and horrific moments. Unfortunately the similarities to the other films was a bit of a let down and will probably turn some people off.
