That’s French For “The Undead”

La Horde

This one’s kinda confusing, so bear/bare with me: The above movie one-sheet is a French zombie movie called La Horde. If my internet French lessons are to be trusted, that translates to “The Horde.” But slap my butt, you say. The writing on the poster is Japanese! How is that possible? Are the French finally friends with the country that could take them out with one blast from Godzilla’s French-fry-eating mouth?

So, yeah – a Japanese poster advertising a French-made horror movie. And it doesn’t stop there. Other countries are getting in on the act as La Horde is the hot talk around e-Town and is shaping up to be the “go to” zombie movie of the year. And judging from the looks of this thing, we shan’t be disappointed.

Here’s La Horde’s twist-y plot:
“Setting: north of Paris. In order to avenge the murder of one of their own by a group of ruthless gangsters, four corrupt cops go on a rampage in a condemned building serving as the mobster’s hideout. Now trapped, the officers are about to be executed when the unimaginable occurs: hordes of bloodthirsty, cannibalistic creatures invade the building, savagely attacking everyone. Unexpected alliances are made when their lives are threatened by the unthinkable.”

They had me at four corrupt cops on a rampage.

No release date yet, but as soon as I finish this flaky butter croissant and a freshly-brewed Cafe’ Noisette, I’ll make some calls and get back to you.
