Critic Reviews for The Horde (La Horde)
This latest example of the French new wave of horror does at least have the Romero-like guts to address a topical social problem.
While it's no masterpiece, it's filled with tension and terror and a solid execution.
French-made zombie flick The Horde isn't up there with Night of the Living Dead but still induces some unexpected gulps.
The Horde doesn't waste time on niceties like explanations or characterisation but if you like your action movies served raw and bloody it will not disappoint.
There's some real creativity and energy to some of The Horde's best moments; one can't help but wish they existed inside of a less irritating movie.
Audience Reviews for The Horde (La Horde)
Fun, entertaining and gory French zombie film that will surely appeal to fans of the genre. This is purely a gore film, and if you're looking for great performances, you'll be sadly disappointed. The French are great filmmakers and have made some stunning works of horror, La Horde being one of several films to come out of that country to offer something that horror fans can truly enjoy. It lacks in effective performances, but there's plenty of zombie carnage, which more than makes up for its flaws. The film manages to be very entertaining despite it simplistic concept, and more often, than not, you're able to pull off at lot more with basic elements. There's a good picture here, and it has enough going for it to make for a worthwhile viewing experience. The cast do a good here, and despite some lacking lead performances, there's enough here to appeal to demanding zombie fans. Directors Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher do a good enough job and keeping the plot moving and interesting. Enjoyable overall, La Horde is a different entry from the usual horror films that have come out of France, and there's enough good gore effects to thrill the viewer from start to finish. Even if it's lacking in effective plot development, the film is worth seeing for its mindless zombie kills, which is what this film is all about. France has definitely made a genre picture that should appeal to viewers and fans everywhere. The gore is great, and that's all that matter in the long run. Don't look for a great story, because you won't find it. This is purely a mindless horror romp, and it does it very well.
I'm tempted to use the term "gore-fest" but the word 'fest' implies something enjoyable.
"I wanna get out of here alive, our chances are better with you." An end of the world battle between gangsters, cops and zombies.
