A bunch of armed, angry cops attempt to storm an apartment full of armed, angry criminals when everything goes horribly wrong. One pile of bullets and bloodshed later and the cops look to be facing their final moments on earth. Which is when all hell breaks loose in the form of an unexplained massive zombie outbreak. Beseiged by the hungry undead, the cops and the criminals must work together if they want to stay alive.
Yes, it’s basically Assault On Precinct 13 with a load of zombies thrown in there but that doesn’t stop this film from being hugely entertaining.
There is adequate acting, a script that may have a bit too much bickering but that does it’s job quickly and efficiently of sketching the characters and getting them from A to B, and plenty of zombie-killing carnage to please gorehounds.
Anyone who has been watching the early 21st century wave of intense French horrors will know what to expect here when the blood starts flowing and the violence seeps into every frame whereas anyone else may end up just wondering what they have let themselves in for.
It’s unbelievable, sometimes ridiculous and always entertaining. Directors Yannick Dahan and Benjamin Rocher certainly know how to please fans of the genre.
