Juan of the Dead is another film we have been following religiously, which has been called Cuba’s first horror film, it is one we need to get our hands on and perhaps it may not be as distant as we feared.
According to the guys over at Variety, John Sloss and Bart Walker’s Cinetic Media has picked up Alejandro Brugues’ zombie/comedy Juan of the Dead for distribution in North America.
It’s not just the U.S. that will be getting to see Juan of the Dead soon, as it appears this one is being picked up worldwide and quite rightly so as it looks freaking badass.
Synopsis: “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.” An Official Website is up but doesn’t appear to be any activity”
