La Horde
La Horde
A band of rogue cops set out to avenge the death of one of their own by tracking down the badass Nigerians responsible for the hit. Holed up in a condemned apartment block on the outskirts of Paris, the Nigerians thwart the raid and look set to violently despatch the cops when an unexpected zombie outbreak focuses everyone's attention on the need to join forces if they're to survive.

Dahan and Rocher's full-tilt, hyper-stylised debut feature further distinguishes itself from the genre pack with an impressive cast brandishing solid arthouse credentials: Claude Perron (Amelie), Eriq Ebouaney, recently seen in Clare Denis' 35 Shots of Rum, and Aurelien Recoing, so memorable in Laurent Cantet's Time Out (L'emploi du temps) from 2001.

"97 minutes of sheer awesome. Throws you head first onto a rollercoaster ride of bloody mayhem. It's a gore and 80s-style action fan's wet dream"
