We've been hearing about Alejandro Bruges' JUAN OF THE DEAD for a good while now, but finally we have a look at Cuba's first horror film!
Debuting at Latino Review, JUAN OF THE DEAD (JUAN DE LOS MUERTOS) sees the titular character take on an undead invasion in Cuba for hire. Writer/director Bruges said, "It's a zombie film but it's about Cubans and how we react in the face of a crisis because we've had a lot of them here over the last 50 years... It is a social comedy, it has a bit of everything. It has horror, it has action and it pretty much laughs in the face of problems."
Apparently, Bruges received backing in Spain and managed to sneak many of the practical F/X (limbs, etc) into Cuba.
The trailer looks like a lot of fun and if Bruges is right, has a good deal to say. It's awesome to see fun, socially conscious films come out of countries without much exposure like Cuba, and Argentina with COLD SWEAT. Hopefully we'll see distribution for this soon!
