There is a reason why zombie films never go out of style. Just when you think you are sick of the sub-genre, someone goes head and produces a new film that just looks so incredibly promising. Welcome to the world of Cuba’s first feature-length horror film in half a century, a gore-filled black comedy in the wake of the Castro rule. Check out the trailer for Juan of the Dead, a Cuban horror film written and directed by Alejandro Bruges. The film takes place 50 years after the Cuban Revolution, where the island is invaded by the walking dead. Conspiracy theories unravel and the Cuban government blames the United States. Obviously inspired by Shaun of the Dead, the trailer promises a fun time. The production values look great, the gore and effects are spot on, and there’s a bit of social commentary to chew on (no pun intended).
