The Hunt is On with The Horde this May
The Horde, hits on Demand in the US and Canada from May 6th 2016 from Gravitas Ventures.
A 313 Films and Razors Edge Productions feature, this action-horror film stars Paul Logan (Mega Piranha), Costas Mandylor (Saw IV), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Vernon Wells (The Road Warrior) and Matthew Willig (Concussion) and is such a fun horror film that wonderfully mixes two genres I havent seen mixed for a while. Action and Horror. If this was a 1980s film then it more than likely would have been an Arnold Schwarzenegger film and I love The Horde for that. Reminding me of the action films of my past but bringing them back to my present. With a feel of The Hills Have Eyes, Wrong Turn, but also films such as Commando, and even some Rambo elements in there, all done with care and attention.
Starting out with a campfire and two horny teenagers,we think we are going to be watching yet another typical horror film. But nope. We aren’t and very soon realise that there is something different about this Jared Cohn directed film. So often in horror We find the non-bad guy characters are slasher fodder for whichever lunatics are out there. Helpless people who run through forest tripping over every branch. Gary (played by Paul Logan) is most certainly not your typical horror fodder, and straight away we think ‘oh lets see him go up against knife wielding villains’ When we first see Gary it reminded me that I must go to the gym and eat healthier, thats for sure. I will admit that I havent seen Paul Logan in any other films (yet) but the description of him being a ‘rising action star’ is spot on. I cant wait to see what other films he has lined up for film fans.
Jared Cohn (Little Dead Rotting Hood) directs Paul Logan’s script of The Horde..Yep as well as starring in the film, Paul also wrote it. The script does have a horror template about it, and there’s nothing wrong with that at all.. horror fans like at least two things. Something they are familiar with or something so unique that its groundbreaking. Here we sort of get both, with a familiar horror structure but ingredients of originality to it with its action set pieces and really painful gore (when needed). Its also beautifully filmed, showing s everything we need to see but also showing us moments that made me turn away. Ouch! Loved it.
Please do check out The Horde, I wont tell you what happens to the characters but join them as Ex-Navy Seal John Crenshaw takes a camping trip with his teacher girlfriend Selina (played by Tiffany Brouwer) and her students on a weekend nature-photography expedition deep into the woods. Its all meant to be an educational and fun-filled trip. But then this film is called The Horde….its not going to end well is is?
