There is no Blu-Ray release planned at the moment.

As with Mutants, the amount Momentum think they will sell of a niche foreign language horror film doesn't justify the cost to produce it on Blu-Ray so they feel it would not be worthwhile to release one at this time.

On the other hand The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo does have a large enough audience and so does have a Blu-Ray release even though it's in Swedish.
And even better the 3 hr versions will be released by Momentum next year!

I suppose we should be grateful to get any of the above films with their original language at all.

I am trying to confirm if La Horde is the 90 or 101 min cut of the film but it has yet to be certified hence TBC above...

I can only find stuff that backs up your post that the only version released is 93 mins.

The reason I talk about a 101 min version is because I know someone whose wife works in marketing in France.
She lent him a review/promotional copy which was 101m30odd seconds long but there was no subtitles on it, he did a running commentary for me although there's not lots and lots of talking. I got the impression there was to be two releases in France the theatrical 93 min cut on DVD and the Uncut 101 min on Blu-Ray?

The blu-ray release could be 101mins might be a mistake on the blu-ray back cover.Hopefully they will release both versions.Also it's being released in the cinema September 17th in the UK.

Official Release in Germany of the UNCUT version listed at 102 mins.
They are also listing the standard version we are getting so two versions in Germany.

I've just seen the German UNCUT version "Die Horde" in French with Eng subs.
The English subs I addded in my media player after loading the BD "file" onto it.

Before you ask not sure what the xtra 8 minutes were as I've not seen the theatrical version but I didn't really see anything that I thought "Yes that wasn't needed"

Very full on and very violent in a RoboCop way as the violence in certain scenes just goes on and on but in agood way!
More violent than Mutants but not quite as scary or atmospheric but still way better than anything coming from the US.

Recommended!

Right, now I've just watched the 93 min version straight after the 102min German "UNCUT" version and it's good news all round!

First all the gore and zombie action is intact in the short version.

Secondly I think I actually preferred the 93 min version.

The extra 9 minutes are all in the beginning of the film before it gets going:-

In the grave yard, extensions to current dialogue and some new dialogue mainly with the dead cops wife to his team and Tony talking more.

Then there is a few minutes beating up a snitch to tell them where the Gansters are hiding out.

Then a scene in the van travelling to the tower block with them talking about what they are going to do to the gangsetsr when they get there.

It's OK stuff but does not really add to the film and only slightly detracts when it's missing.
Nobody is watching this really for character development and that's all its trying to do but it does slow us down from getting to the action and it's not really missed.

The longer version is not as bad as the Rambo 4 extended cut (which slowed the film AND trimmed the violence WTF!!??) but in the end I did prefer it getting to the action that much quicker in the 93 min version.

So I would call the German "UNCUT" BluRay the Extended version as I really think that UNCUT (it's in capitals on the cover!) tag is just a marketing ploy to make people think there is extra gore/violence which sadly there is not.

All the scenes on the extended German version are on the UK DVD as deleted scenes.

More interesting though according to dvdbeaver is:
"English-friendly" DVD and "BluRay" editions will be available in Canada in October from Alliance.

My speech marks as can't work out how to bold stuff on here.
Lets hope they also do a BluRay of Mutants.
Now I'm really happy I have my multi zone OPPO BluRay player :-)

amazon.ca listing the bluray CHEAPER than the DVD??!!

http://www.amazon.ca/Horde-Blu-ray/d...4299859&sr=1-1 CDN$ 21.69

http://www.amazon.ca/Horde/dp/B003Z9...4299859&sr=1-2
CDN$ 22.09


La Horde was filmed in HD and having seen the DVD and BR I could not now just have the DVD.

In fact I do not buy UK DVD only versions and just wait because somewhere in the world that film will be be released on BR...eventually!

German and French BluRays do NOT have English subs.
The Canadian BluRay WILL have English subs

Very Good question as it would make my life easier as there are a few German & French BluRays I would love but no subs

I assume its down to whether it's licensed for Europe or just the UK when it's released here but native speaking films in France & Germany seem to have very specific licencing rights.

I was sure a few German HD discs had English subs, but I guess because this is a french film, on a German disc that makes it a weee bit different
