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.

La Horde has to be the best zombie film, or action film for that matter, that I've seen in a long time.
The story starts out with bent cops out to avenge the killing of another policeman by gangsters. The tension and action were so good from the outset I was almost wishing it wasn't about to become a zombie film. When it did, I wasn't disappointed.
The action is fast and brutal and is broken up with genuinely funny, but very dark, humour. The pace of the film doesn't let up by not getting bogged down in explaining the reasons or cures for the zombies, instead focusing on the tensions in the uneasy alliance between the police and the gangsters.
My single criticism of the film is that it shouldn't be openly advertised as a zombie film, leaving their arrival as a surprise. But this doesn't stop this being the one of the finest action or zombie films around, I highly recommend it. See it as soon as you can!
