Throwback Thursday: Horde

This week's throwback is the brilliantly intense Horde courtesy of France-based animation group The Brutus Collective. If you're having trouble matching a face to the name, I'll spoil it for you: The four directors are alumni of the Supinfocom computer animation university and were the guys behind 2013's gorgeously post-apocalyptic Contre Temps.

Horde follows a lone motorcyclist speeding down a dark country highway who is ambushed by a gang of ghoulish apparitions looking to separate his head from his neck in the fewest amount of steps possible. It's gritty and violent, and combined with music courtesy of Flairs, it echoes the tone and imagery of tremendous motorcycle fights seen in the likes of Tron and Akira.
