POLL DESCRIPTION

So, my daughter an I were browsing Netflix looking for a waste of time, and saw that the description for the movie The Horde was:
Four corrupt policemen invade a gangster's hideout to avenge the death of their colleague. That is, until a legion of vicious zombies swarms through the building.
We had a lot of fun when we realized you could make a plot synopsis by replacing the first sentence with pretty much any other sentence and went about using the ones from other movies. Go ahead... try it yourself. The only problem was we realized we were not satisifed with the use of the collective noun "legion" for a group of zombies (after all, the movie is called The Horde).

So what is it?
