Fast, fun and hilarious, Alexander Brugués’s 2nd feature film, Juan of the Dead, gives a decidedly Cuban touch to the zombie genre when an outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution.
Living up to the promise of its titular pun, Juan of the Dead transports the satirical mandates of George A. Romero’s zombie flicks to Cuba. Throwing humor, political smarts and the odd limb into the genre meat-grinder, this hilariously subversive zom-com proves there’s life in the undead yet.
