According to Twitch, Goal of the Dead is headed our way from directors Benjamin Rocher (The Horde) and Thierry Poiraud (Atomik Circus). Read on for the skinny!
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 northeast of France, Caplongue, lays a nuclear power plant, industrialized agriculture and a church lower than its unemployment rate but also a 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 jubilant 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 are 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.
