IHC Movie Reviews: Juan of the Dead (2011)

First of all, I have to say, this zombie movie was impressive. I think it easily deserved the 4 stars it was given. When you watch the protagonist Juan in this film, you get a real true feeling of his love for Cuba, not many films can really portray that so deeply…at least, not in this genre of the industry. Also, this film is upbeat, and I like that, along with the fact that the story is extremely well written and directed by Alejandro Brugues. The actors did a fantastic job as well. If they could have dubbed this in English, would have been better, BUT the subtitles were evenly paced, accurate in translation, and didn’t distract from the scenes as I read along the first time.

Check out the trailer for “Juan of the Dead”, Cuba’s first horror film

Written and directed by Alejandro Bruges, Juan of the Dead takes place 50 years after the Cuban Revolution, where the island is overrun by zombies the government swears were sent by the United States. Social commentary aside, it’s then up to one man to attempt to solve the problem. Part Shaun of the Dead (obviously) but with a grittier look more akin to something culty and cool like Six-String Samurai, you’ve gotta see this bad-ass trailer for Juan of the Dead.
