This week I’m reviewing The Horde (2009) for my monthly zombie movie choice. And in February I’m featuring a woman in my choices for Women in Horror Month. Here’s what the movie is about about:
“A posse of crooked cops, malevolent gangsters and a horde of walking dead are the centre point of this gruesome, tight, action packed, claustrophobic tale of retribution and escape. Penned like animals, on the top floor of a deserted high-rise block, these two opposing gangs find that they are not alone in the lair of bloodthirsty corridors of death. Joining forces to survive, they must reach ground level together or perish. Loaded with a bad ass attitude, guns, axes and extremely creative hand-to-hand combat sequences that project the fears and paranoia that are the fighting forces behind the need to survive, when caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Holy FUCK! The Horde is kick ass! Watch it! Can I leave it at that?
I was at the point where I thought I’d seen most of the really good ones, or bad ones considering I like ’em that way. Somehow, this one had escaped me.
Who you really need to keep an eye on is Claude Perron. This lady is the most kick ass of all the characters. Particularly watch for a fight scene between her and a woman zombie. I was screaming my approval at the screen. I loved her so much that I added her to my daily highlighted Women in Horror Month Tweets.
The Horde has a darkness to it that I loved. It also had quite a few hunky and hot French men. Let’s just say nothing could distract me from watching. But seriously, the violence in this movie is believable to a disturbing level.
Make sure you watch the 2009 version, just in case you hadn’t noticed me highlighting the year. You’ll love it as much as me! This one is being added to my best of the best list.
My Rating: 5 out of 5
