If you can not tell by now, the scene in the horror community is changing. Zombies are becoming the main monster on the block and now we have word on a new zombie flick with a sports flair called Goal of The Dead. Check out the news below.
The fellas at Twitch landed the info and say Benjamin Rocher and Thierry Poiraud are going to direct. The former was co-director on the French zombie film The Horde and Poiraud was co-director of Atomik Circus.
The synopsis goes like this…
Saturday, the 18th of January 2012. A quarter of an hour before the match. An hour before the Apocalypse.In a small village in the north-east of France, Caplongue, lays a nuclear power plant, an industrialized agriculture and a church lower than its unemployment rate but also, the football team, which managed to reach the 1/32nd French Final Cup with a lot of courage and talent. The village is all the more jubilating at the idea of receiving the Paris Olympic, a top league club with famous footballers. For the Paris Olympic, it’s the opposite. The team mustn’t lose. This match, which was supposed to be a formality, has become of paramount importance. Between Paris and Caplongue, there is more than 250kms. It’s a match that opposes the rural to the urban world, the amateurs to the professionals, a province town to the capital, the poor to the rich. While the amateurs give a rough ride to the professionals, an epidemic instantly transforms the players, the spectators and the inhabitants into strange and enraged creatures.
Based on the teaser art, Goal of the Dead is a two-part tale, part one being called “First Leg” the second being, naturally, “Second Leg.” We shall see if this comes to fruition.
