Not only are zombie flicks flooding Hollywood as of late, but they’re also flooding theatres in other parts of the world as well. Clearly there is something universal about them, and now we’ve got a teaser trailer for a French zombie film called La Horde coming out sometime this year. Produced by Xavier Gens (Hitman, FrontiÃ¨re(s)), and directed by Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher, the story takes place in the outskirts of Paris, where four corrupt cops have come to exact revenge on some gangsters. Unfortunately for them, they find the streets in chaos and are forced to battle through wave after wave of bloodthirsty zombies.
The teaser trailer is fairly short, but it definitely impresses with the sheer number of zombies on screen, and makes it clear that these are very mobile creatures, not slow-walking undead. Other than that, it’s hard to tell what to expect, but you can check out a poster and some photos over at Arrow in the Head. La Horde premiered at the Venice Film Festival last year, and hits theatres in France in February. IFC will release it stateside sometime later in the year. Check out the teaser trailer after the jump and see what you think!
