Ferdinand de Saussure meets Canadian zombie movie - uh, sure ... why not? A shock jock discovers there's some sort of attack underway outside of his studio caused by a 'word virus' in the English language (one way to avoid it: speak au français!) that causes its victims to lose it. It isn't scary and, since it's basically confined to one room, comes across as a filmed play (echoing Eric Bogosian's Talk Radio) instead of Romero's Night of the Living Dead, but it can't be faulted for not attempting something new with the already exhausted genre. Here's a tagline they could have used: You could shoot the affected in the head, but why not swap signs and signifiers instead?
