Goal of the Dead kicks around some cool art

One of the many films that plans on leaving its bloody mark on the Fantasia International Film Festival starting this July is Benjamin Rocher and Thierry Poiraud’s zombie comedy GOAL OF THE DEAD, a badass looking soccer flick that has a run in with the living dead. This should be interesting! To go along with the English trailer we hit you folks with last month (watch it here) is some really cool artwork for the film. Dig it below!

The two-part film centers around a French Olympic football team who 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 and transforms the players, spectators and inhabitants into strange and enraged creatures.

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.

GOAL OF THE DEAD was directed by Thierry Poiraud and THE HORDE helmer Benjamin Rocher.
