A group of crooked cops, malevolent gangsters and a horde of walking dead are the centre point of this gruesome, action-packed, tale of retribution and escape. Penned in like animals, on the top floor of a deserted high-rise, these two opposing gangs find they're not alone in the lair of bloodthirsty zombies stalking the corridors of death. Joining forces to survive, they must reach the ground level together or perish. Loaded with a bad ass attitude, guns, axes and extremely creative hand-to-hand combat need to survive, being caught up in the wrong place at the wrong time.Written by
The short 'Rivoallan' is a prequel/prologue to the film 'La Horde'; introduces some of the characters and narrates what happened before the events of the movie. Makes no sense on its own if you don't watch the full-length film below. See more »
After one of the cops was executed by a gangster you can see him still breathing in a later shot. See more »
The version released in Germany is cut by ca. six minutes to secure a "Not under 18" rating. See more »

Brains! Sautés au beurre, s'il vous plaît.
There is always an argument among zombie purists. Should the walk slow as in most zombie films, or can they run? This is the running type, so the purists may be disappointed.
Yes, there was blood and gore - plenty of it. No self-respecting zombie movie can exist without it, just as no self-respecting vampire movie would eschew blood for glitter.
It was non-stop action from start to finish. As you would expect in real life, it was loud, very loud. These people were literally screaming for their lives.
The ending was predicable, but effective nonetheless. Just could not take my eyes off Claude Perron (Amélie) throughout the film. She did a superb job, as did Eriq Ebouaney (Lumumba, Hit-man, Transporter 3).
