Our take

Pitched between Assault on Precinct 13 and The Raid—with zombies!—this adrenalized action-horror finds plenty of flesh on the lean bones of its set-up. Cops, gangsters, confined setting, the undead: that’s the recipe for a prime cut of Gallic midnight mayhem, which The Horde knows just how to cook.
