‘Juan of the Dead’ Shambles Into the U.S.

Focus Features’ digital distribution initiative, Focus World, has added Cuban zombie comedy Juan of the Dead (review) to its U.S. release slate.

A festival favorite that world premiered in September at Toronto, “‘Juan’ turns on a 40-year-old slacker who, when a zombie outbreak hits Cuba, turns a quick buck slaying families’ shambling undead.

Critics have been quick to see “Juan” as political allegory. If it really says anything about Cuba, it is its inhabitants’ knack of making ends meet, according to director Alejandro Brugues.

Focus World premieres titles across video-on-demand and electronic sell-thru platforms, including cable/satellite providers, iTunes, Xbox 360, Playstation and YouTube.
