Review

Zombie films are a popular genre among horror films these days, subject to constant re-interpretation. The Horde falls under the category of modern re-tellings inspired by George Romero’s ‘The Dead’ series, while striving to differentiate itself through likeability and level of ution. Yannick Dahan co-worked with Benjamin Rocher to imbue their film with a pop-like sensitivity. The film does not portray how or by what route the zombie virus spread but, instead binds together two rival groups, the police and a gang, in a frantic game of survival, where human gunshots are as terrifying as the chattering of zombie teeth. In a twist, the film centers on a female warrior protagonist and through her eyes, the audience is left to reflect upon the zombies’ indiscriminate bloodlust versus the humans who oppose them and their own murderous ways. Sharing affinities with Danny Boyle’s 28 Weeks Later action series, the film veers wildly between extremes of cruelty and hilarity, with a rock-n-roll sensibility.
