The French can not be stopped!!
Covering and perfecting many aspects of horror, as seen in the past few flicks put out in France, one topic was still left untouched; Zombies. Through shown a sneak peak of misformed humans who eat other living people's flesh in the film Frontier(s), we have yet to see people die and then come back. Boy, was it worth the wait! The Horde not only tackles and annihilates recent American zombie flicks, it also keeps the rawness to it and portrays characters you love to hate. Opening up with an unsucessful attempt on revenge by three cops (or so they claim) on a gang who murdered they're friend, the group finds theselves looking down barrels of guns and fearing they're lives will end shortly with no justice served, yet before they know it; the two rivals must unite temporarily in order to stay alive from a destroyed town's post mordem creations headed right for them. From the top of the run down apartment complex's roof, the surviving members of both the gang and police see what complete mayhem has ensued over the city. Explosions on a "one after another" basis, and the clouds dark yet lit up with smoke and fire like a fourth of july gone horribly wrong. I really enjoyed this movie, the fact that no one can be trusted at anytime really added to the intensity of the situation they were in. not only must each gang member or cop be aware of zombies from all angles running (yes, the french zombies are fast) towards them, but they must keep they're living breathing enemy in they're sights and make sure they don't fall victim to weakness and surprise. Seeing the survivors after meeting with a great comic relief character on the first floor really put them in the light of similarity to the video game Left 4 Dead. a vet, a black guy in a suit, a woman and a diesel badass.. sound firmiliar? Copies are not availble on dvd for this movie, i actually had to seek outside sources; but if anyone wants to watch this and not wait for it to come out in Region 1, let me know!
