A crimson clot of violence from French zombie film 'THE HORDE'

We all know how insane French movies like INSIDE, MARTYRS, HIGH TENSION and FRONTIER(s) are, now the French are doing a full fledge zombie film. As a zombie fan, I have been following news from "The Horde' for quite sometime. I stumbled upon another vicious trailer from BeyondHollywood and it got me even more excited then the first trailer my Rated R eyes had seen previously.  The Horde might not blow anyone away with story but I'm sure zombie fans will be taken upside down by some of the wicked violence this film pumps out. The zombies in this film are the crack-cocaine type, they are sharply fast, this time they are up against cops and gangstas. This film looks like a theme ride at an amusement park and your ticket taker is a pixie dust spreader on a tilt a whirl. IFC has picked up the movie for distribution, no known release date for the US yet, I'll keep you posted as to if and when it becomes available.



On the outskirts of Paris, four corrupt cops go on a rampage to avenge the murder of one of their own by a group of ruthless gangsters, holed up in a condemned building. Once there, the officers’ personal vendetta turns into a nightmare. Trapped, they are about to be executed when the unimaginable occurs: hordes of bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures invade the building, savagely attacking everyone. Running to the roof, the survivors discover that their entire world is in chaos. The streets are filled with massive heaps of countless cadavers and the entire city is in flames. Alone and wounded, despite their mutual hatred, the gangsters and cops have no choice but join forces if they want to survive. They’ll have to make it down thirteen floors full of voracious creatures but the greatest threat lies elsewhere…
