THE HORDE (2009)
Pretty decent zombie flick from Belgium that starts with a group of cops battling it out with a gang of criminal gangster types in an apartment building. Sound familiar? Yes the opening reminded me a lot of DAWN OF THE DEAD, you even get someone getting their neck bitten out before all hell breaks loose. These are the fast moving style zombies though so if you're not into that this movie won't be for you and since they're the running type the whole film plays more as an action movie and isn't very scary at all. It is probably the fastest moving zombie film I can recall and for an action movie it's pretty good and people get eaten alive so that's something you don't see in a typical action flick. Everything that happens is pretty typical for the living dead genre though and I have to take off credit for the cgi enhanced blood but it's probably worth checking out if you're not completely sick of zombie movies in general.
