Will form a lake until it reach a point either the landslide give, or water just dig it's way from top bringing all the mud/stones with it.

This looks like a snow avalanche from the mountains above, being colored by the sediments in the hill on it's way down.

Landslides can create very large dams, like this one: http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2010/06/landslide_lake_in_pakistan.html

When such dams collapses, it may create a deadly flash flood.
Never underestimate the power of large crowds, of stupid people.
