La Horde (2009) - US limited theatrical release August 2010

Zombies have been around for a long time. Every once in awhile we get a refreshing twist on the zombie genre in the way of a deeper story or making them move faster. “La Horde” manages to touch on something new: This is the angriest zombie movie this author has ever seen.

Whenever the apocalypse begins in a zombie movie, the cast is thrown into a situation that defies reality, confuses, confounds and horrifies those who survive the first round of destruction. “La Horde” gives us an angry group of survivors, cops and criminals, who beat the shit out of the undead that threaten their lives. Some techniques prove better than others, but creativity is never far behind. One character starts off administering a fair beating, but nothing says “I love you” like a dropping a refrigerator on someone.

Not only is the action/violence against these zombies entertaining to watch, but the cast of characters is entertaining. An old French war veteran who swears the zombification process is turning the former living French into… the Chinese. BRILLIANT! There are few interesting parallels drawn between the zombie threat and the violence in Africa by two of the brothers in the story. One relives moments in his shady past while the other reminds him that this is not that situation. This movie’s story elements are light on complexity, but heavy on fun.

You’ll root for the living as they kick, punch and throw crap at the dead. You’ll cheer when some of the more drastic scenes happen with all their glory. And if you loved all we’ve mentioned above, you may even love this movie for what it is – and especially what it isn’t.
