Juan of the Dead
50 years after the Cuban Revolution, a new Revolution is about to begin.
While Havana is full of zombies hungry for human flesh, official media reported that the disturbances are caused by dissidents paid by the United States. Panic seizes all until Juan comes to the rescue: he discovers he can kill the undead destroying his brain, and decides to start a small business under the slogan "We kill your loved ones."

Socialism vs the Undead.
A rogue harpoonist.
Undead salsa dancing.
The most hilarious sitting-naked-in-a-car-chained-to-each-other scene you'll ever see.
Coolest DIY amphibian vehicle ever.
Hairy Cuban balls.
Yeah, you kinda need to watch this.
Can't remember who's review I saw now but it was enough to make me watch this. Juan of the Dead is a Spanish-Cuban zombie comedy horror based in the Cuban city of Havana and is directed by Alejandro Brugués.
Juan is a bit of a lowlife criminal making a living in Havana. A zombie epidemic suddenly starts and spreads quickly. Juan decides that he can make money from this and starts his own business called Juan of the Dead, charging people for killing their infected loved ones. As the film progresses, most of the city eventually becomes infected and Juan and his band decide to find a way to leave Havana.
The movie mainly impressed me with some good accomplished…
Is this basically a Cuban Shaun of the Dead?
Sorta. It is about a scrawny guy and a chunky guy fighting zombies.
Does that mean it's bad?
Not at all. It's actually fun as hell. Aside from some slightly vague likeness to Shaun, it's pretty original and creative not only in it's comedy but it's zombie kills.
Don't expect it to be better than Shaun, but it's still a hilarious zombie flick with plenty of laughs and full of heart. Hell, if Shaun wasn't so good, I'd say this was the best zombie-comedy I've ever seen.
As I sit here in Florida, staring out at the ocean, I find myself reflecting on lots of things. But I also think about the country that is a few hour boat ride away from here.
Of course this country has had its fair share of difficulties and unsavory history. Today Cuba is still a lot different than many societies which makes films like these very easy to enjoy. It's almost like they made this film so everyone could heave a big sigh of relief and confirm that Cuba is slowly but surely moving away from its hostile reputation. Juan of the Dead is basically (if…
I ended up watching Juan with the English dub audio because the original audio had some odd echo effect going on. I think it took away from the film as the dub was bad, real bad.
Otherwise, like most of my three star rated movies, it seemed it could have been so much better if has less cliche and just reached out a little bit more. However, it did have some original scenes that gave me a chuckle.
OTT, Daft, Crazy, Fun. All these words should be on the poster.
Cuban Zombie Crisis leads Jaun and his friends to start a zombie killing business while they decide whether to fleee to Miami.
OMFG! So good! So funny, Juan of the Dead made me LOL on several occasions.
I love a good Horror-comedy and these guys nailed it. Its been so long since I've seen a movie that's made me lol so much and it was just what I needed after the disappointment that I watched before this.
100% recommend this to anyone who liked Shaun of the Dead hehe.
Tiene buenas ideas e intenciones pero su principal problema no es su presupuesto bajo sino el aburrimiento que te produce cuando entiendes que nada más iniciarse la película ya has visto todo lo que tenías que ver.
Tampoco entiendo a Andrea Duró aquí metida pero la acepto a regañadientes.
Los créditos finales bastante bien pero la banda sonora en forma de cover que los adorna es HO-RRI-BLE .
Neither scary nor funny piece of turd
A very political, yet purposely fun zombie movie. Not only is it a message for the people of Cuba to liberate their own beliefs, but also a love letter to the films they may have never seen due to America's sanctions against them. There are references to almost every major zombie movie within this one. From famous lines, to montages and kills ripped straight from the narratives of its legendary counterparts. I enjoyed this way more than I thought I would, having it be not too corny and provide more than enough memorable characters to follow along with. Considering I saw this at a free screening at a library of all places, somewhere I'd never wanna be during an outbreak, it may have made it all even more thrilling.
I can't believe i liked this. Between the terrible porno music and unlikable perverted and murderous characters lies a very unattractive slog.
And while this was a chore to get through a second time, I really would love to see more from Cuba. The setting really works, and it shows.
Forget "Zombieland", this is what I called a funny Zombie-Trash-Movie.
Just as enjoyable the second time around. And the soundtrack is pure heaven; like a cuban 'explosions in the sky'.
Zombesco in salsa cubana, che gioca col regime castrista a suon di amenità e cinismi. L'idea di partenza ormai è stra-logora e comincia inevitabilmente a mostrare la corda; ma la freschezza degli interpreti e la capacità di tutti (sia in cabina di regia che in fase di scrittura) di sfruttare abilmente i luoghi e le situazioni ha del miracoloso. Giustamente l'ago della bussola è sempre orientato sull'autoironia, tanto da condurre in porto agevolmente questa piccola apologia dei reietti e della loro arte di (soprav) vivere. Carinissima Andrea Duro.

Esta muy pendeja y divertida. Como todo tiene sus puntos bajos,muero lo que más molesto fue el final. Un Juan que se muestra cobarde y pusilánime.
