The Horde - New Info About French Zombie Film

I have mentioned French zombie film, The Horde, several times in the past. Heck, the first post was in April of last year! Well, we are finally getting close to seeing it.

The Horde will be released in its native country of France next month. I know, I know... in France. BUT it already has already been picked up for distribution stateside by IFC Films. So, hopefully, we will have the opportunity to pick up this DVD in a few months.

Long-time readers will know I'm a fan of French films. Want to watch some great cinema? Rent High Tension, Martyrs, Them, or Frontier(s). Yannick Dahan who directed Frontier(s) is also the director of The Horde.

Bottom line: I'm excited and you should be too.

The Horde synopsis:

A posse of crooked cops, malevolent gangsters and a horde of walking dead as the centre point of this gruesome, tight, action packed, claustrophobic tale of retribution and escape. Penned like animals, on the top floor of a deserted high-rise block, these two opposing gangs find that they are not alone in the lair of bloodthirsty corridors of death. Joining forces to survive, they must reach ground level together or perish. Loaded with a bad ass attitude, guns, axes and extremely creative hand-to-hand combat sequences that project the fears and paranoia that are the fighting forces behind the need to survive, when caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  1. awesome, awesome film. Saw it at a Zombie Film Fest in Nov last year, 'reservoir dogs meets 28days later' it was tagged as. Not far wrong.

  2. Glad to hear it was good. Let me know if you'd like to write a review!
