Angry Movie Lurker Review 10: La Horde:(3 STARS)


Watched this last week as I am a bit of a fan of Zombie movies, this is a french one from the director Yannick Dahan.It starts as a revenge trip for 4 corrupt police officers as they attempt to kill the criminal responsible for the death of one of their own, that mission goes bad for them and they are at the mercy of the criminals when zombie hell breaks out literally and they have to join forces to fight off the zombie menace(fast zombie and slow zombies?).This is a grim movie and would be a lot better if you actually cared for any of the main characters but you don't(I did not recognise any of the main actors possibly because they were french and not really known to me),The movie is quick paced and set in the location of a tower block and it just about worth 3 STARS for a couple of good scenes(.30 cal WW2 light machine gun and a corridor full of zombies being a stand out moment).Remember revenge is a dish best served cold and your greatest danger is always going to be other survivors.

By the way watch it in its native language it really helps.

  1. That’s one that fell through the net for me as I follow French movies and horror/thriller type movies. I’ll try to get to watch it. Don’t know much from that director or any of the actors except for Claude Perron who had a small part in “Amelie”(she was the girl running the porn shop).

  2. I just watched the dubbed version (I've heard worse dubbing) and I quite enjoyed it. I agree that most/all of the characters are not exactly lovable but I almost felt sorry for the Nigerian at the end. And the Dien Bien Phu vet was a hoot!
