The Horde

Some days are just doomed to be bad.  A band of cops decide one night to go rogue and seek vengeance for a fallen friend.  They know that the gang responsible are using a condemned building as a base.  So one night they put on ski masks and go in shooting.  Things don't turn out well, and look dire in fact.  They are captured and wounded and are about the be tortured.

Then the zombies come. 

Like I said, some days are just doomed to be bad.  Now crooks and cops have to form a short term alliance and find a way out of the building and through the sea of hungry dead.  It won't be easy.  People turn fast after being bitten and the zombies here are fast and strong.  They get unexpected aid from an old military veteran who's half crazy but has his own home made explosives. 

This french film is fairly by the numbers plot wise but some of the images are great.  There's the first zombie attack where the zombie is wearing a black plastic bag over its face and I thought I was going to pee my pants!  The view from the top of the building of a Paris in flames is powerful.  Definitely worth a watch if you are a horror or zombie fan!


  1. Looks like a cool movie. I still want to holler "BRAINS, BRAINS!!" whenever I see zombies.
