Plot – Spoilers:
France is overrun with zombies. Cops seeking revenge for a dead friend are forced to cooperate with the people they were trying to kill when the zombies come calling. That’s about it. La Horde follows the tropes of earlier legendary zombie movies with the inner strife within the group battling zombies theme.
There is some good gore and also unwittingly funny moments like when a heroic martyr cop runs through a swarm of zombies like he were trying to play a game of rugby. Also, just because the zombies are French doesn’t meant they speak French. They just grunt and scream like your average zombie.
