The Horde (2009)

aka La Horde (France)- Genuinely suspenseful and intense, the Horde is easily on a level with the Dawn of the Dead remake and 28 Days Later. Driven by extreme violence and gore, the French film is balanced by deep drama, not to mention socio-political issues (“i’m a f*cking NIGERIAN!”). There are a few laughs, but overall the Horde shows the vengeful side of humans that have nothing left to lose. The Walking Dead can suck it. [rating: $9]
