A worthy addition to the zombie comedy genre...
20 December 2015 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

If you enjoyed "Shaun of the Dead" then you will also like "Goal of the Dead". Don't let the fact that it is a French movie scare you off. The French have already placed themselves on the zombie map with previous zombie movies, for example "The Horde".

There is a good amount of subtle comedy in "Goal of the Dead" which was nicely executed and brought to the screen. Luckily it was not to the point of being comedy to make you laugh, as that would have spoiled the movie.

"Goal of the Dead" also has a good amount of action, and the scenes with a gun and shotgun fired in slow motion were really amazing, and the movie is worth watching for that alone.

Normally I detest zombie movies with running zombies, but for some reason it worked out nicely in "Goal of the Dead".

The zombie make-up was great and there were some interesting effects and scenes throughout the movie. So the special effects team really deserves a big thumbs up.

"Goal of the Dead" is a well-worthy addition to any zombie movie collection. And I must applaud directors Thierry Poiraud and Benjamin Rocher for their fine work on this movie.
