Trailer for Cuba’s First Horror Film, ‘Juan of the Dead’

Latino Review has scored an exclusive look at the trailer for the Cuban zombie horror comedy Juan of the Dead (first announced last May), a social satire which is not afraid to poke fun at the system. Alejandro Brugues’s undead romp is the first ever Cuban horror film.

Juan is a typical forty-year-old slacker. One day Havana begins to fill up with zombies. Juan decides that the best way to cope with it is to prosper. “Juan of the dead killed their loved ones” is his slogan, and his mission is to help people get rid of those infected around them … for a price. But the situation gets worse — while everyone is escaping to sea as a means to get away, Juan is left with no choice but to become a hero, staying to defend his country and protect his own on an island that has turned into a real bloodbath.
