Check These Out: Photos from French Zombie Film 'La Horde'
Not to be confused with the other French horror film The Pack, this is its own breed of horror. La Horde, or obviously just The Horde in English, was recently picked up by IFC Films for US distribution sometime this year. In addition to that news, our friends at Arrow in the Head scored a good batch of new photos from the film as well as a look at the French poster (which I've cropped a bit for the photo above). You can watch an early teaser for the film, but I suggest starting with these photos, since they just look insane. La Horde is part of the "political French horror" movement and played at the Venice Film Festival last year. Proceed!
La Horde is set on the outskirts of Paris and follows four corrupt cops who 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. But once they get to the building, hordes of bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures invade, 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. They'll have to make it down thirteen floors full of voracious creatures to escape and survive. This definitely looks pretty damn cool. Thoughts?
