The Horde (French: La Horde) is a 2009 French horror film co-written and directed by Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher. It stars Claude Perron, Jean-Pierre Martins, Eriq Ebouaney and Aurélien Recoing.
A group of French policemen embark on a mission of vengeance after a colleague is killed by a notorious drug dealer. He is holed up in a condemned high-rise in the heart of a derelict and corrupt Paris neighborhood (ZUP). They storm the social housing complex with the intent of taking him down, but the operation is a failure and the team is captured. Suddenly, both sides are confronted by an altogether different opponent, zombies. Cops and criminals must now forge an uneasy alliance to survive the undead onslaught.
