The film follows John Crenshaw as he accompanies his girlfriend and her students on a weekend nature-photography expedition deep into the woods. What should be an educational and fun-filled weekend turns into horror as the group is besieged by an unspeakable evil - a horde of hideously disfigured, mutated humans with an insatiable taste for blood. As things go from bad to worse, Crenshaw becomes their only hope if they are going to get out alive.

best movie i've ever seen.


It's complicated... I really like the directing, acting and writing but, there are issues with the way it's shot that I just can't deny. As much as I love the storytelling and the fantastic performance but, there are also certain scenes that didn't need to exist.


Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.


It appears to be the be first script that Paul Logan has written, which probably explains the excessive martial art fighting scenes involving himself and opportunities to take off his top! ha ha The horde was obviously made on a pretty small budget and considering this, I don't want to slam it too much. The movie as a whole is kind of weird mash up of Rambo, Universal Soldier and perhaps a pinch of Deliverance meets House of 1000 Corpses? As an intended horror, I don't think its particularly scary in any way but its got some good gore factor in there for you in that's your thing. The teacher to student talk about being a virgin was an obvious set up for a B movie unneeded gang rape which was pretty cringe worthy and I guess in place for the lack of frights to this movie. The story itself is pretty shaky and doesn't really develop past being in the woods and in danger. The direction of the stereotypical characters in scenes is not the best nor is the explanation for these weird people being in the woods doing what their doing in the first place. However, the whole point of this film is obviously to get to the kicking arse part of the movie where the Rambo type character of John Crenshaw gets to descend on the town, does his arse kicking and attempt to rescue his group. I would say that on a budget the SFX are actually pretty good surprisingly. It was worth a watch in short but it wont need a second viewing.


I had such a good time with this film, it just fitted my own personal tastes so well. I love action and I love horror and blending them together is tricky but I feel it was done extremely well here.Paul Logan is a great and likable lead, he is a bad-ass that I would want on my side! Not only does he star but he wrote the script as well, and he does know his stuff.The action hits hard and the horror is gruesome, what more could you ask for? The cast all do a pretty good job, there is the awesome inclusion of Costas Mandylor and Vernon Wells - who almost steals the show as well!Full Review: https://supermarcey.com/2016/06/06/review-the-horde-2016/


This film has a totally unoriginal plot of a school trip to wrong turn country. The subplot is the teacher has a boyfriend who is Rambo. So when the action starts its is bad guy after bad guy that dies. The gore effects were surprisingly good but the acting was unbelievable and unrealistic.In a good film the viewer is made to feel empathy for its characters but in this film there is virtually no character development and you do not care for any of the people in the film. In fact the total opposite I wanted them annoying teens to get killed. There's a scene where a kid has his tongue yanked out and a few minutes later he's talking. Maybe it grew back. There was virtually no suspense or scares in the film. It was an action film with a few bits of blood thrown in. Its watchable and even fun but a very shallow viewing experience.


"The Horde"--not to be confused with a 2010 release from France (known as "Le Horde" (and not to mention a MUCH better movie)--is yet another reply of a teenagers-die-in-the-woods movie. Paul Logan plays John Crenshaw, a one-man wrecking crew and overall bad ass, who accompanies his bride-to-be, and her students on a photography field trip to Sapphire Mountain to complete a school project. You have your typical stereotypes in the lot: the couple who just need to get a room, the virgin, and the so-obnoxious-he- needs-to-die-immediately person. Seems the kiddies and their chaperons run into a group of badly made up goons while on the trip. Mayhem ensues, people die, and no one really cares. Of course, you cannot just off these characters. They all must suffer. One is cannibalized (while alive), one has her hands nailed to a table and then is repeatedly raped, one has her head bashed in against some rocks...well, you get the picture. Starring in this really bad movie are Vernon Wells, the original bad ass from the original "Road Warrior" movie, Costas Mandylor, who played in a billion of the "Saw" movies (yet still cannot act his way out of a paper bag), and Bill Moseley, who has about as much acting ability as a turnip. Paul Logan goes around with his shirt off quite a bit, and poses tons for the camera.Garbage and not recommended. Rated "R" for graphic violence, rape, brief nudity, and language. The only thing this movie had going for it was the teenagers actually LOOKED like teenagers.
