New On VOD - Gruesome French Zombie Flick “La Horde” Starring “Lumumba”

I initially profiled this French zombie flick, titled La Horde, back in May of 2010.

Soon thereafter, IFC’s new genre label, IFC Midnight, acquired it for USA distribution, with plans to premiere the film simultaneously in theaters (limited) and on VOD in August, with an eventual home video release later.

Well… it’s later.

A quick recap… You should remember Eriq Ebouaney… his highest profile role likely being in Raoul Peck’s wonderful 2000 film Lumumba, as the titular character.

In, La Horde (The Horde), co-directed by Frenchmen Yannick Dahan & Benjamin Rocherhe, Ebouaney leads a pack of crooked cops and malevolent gangsters in a life/death battle against a horde of the walking dead – aka zombies.

Stuck on the top floor of a deserted high-rise block, in this gruesome, tight, action-packed, claustrophobic tale of retribution and escape, two opposing groups (the crooked cops and the gangsters) find that they are not alone in the lair of bloodthirsty corridors of death. Joining forces to survive, they must reach ground level together or perish!

I just learned that the film, as of this week, is now available to watch via Netflix's Instant Watch streaming feature, meaning, you can watch it right now, and in HD! You're literally 3 or 4 clicks away.

I haven’t seen it yet, but I'm going to watch it tonight, and maybe I'll share my thoughts some time later.

By the way, it's also on DVD for those who'd rather purchase or rent the disk.

Here’s its trailer again:
