Playing as part of the Fantasia 2014 Film Festival is Goal of the Dead, a soccer movie… with zombies. Can you think of anything else that could make the quest for the Cup more exciting? Check out some new artwork and more.
Directed by Benjamin Rocher (The Horde) and Thierry Poiraud, the two-part film centers around a French Olympic football team that visits a small village in Northern France to play a crucial game in the run-up to the World Cup. But as the apocalypse looms, an epidemic quickly spreads, transforming the players, spectators, and inhabitants alike.
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, lay a nuclear power plant, 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.
