JUAN OF THE DEAD aka JUAN DE LOS MUERTOS.
In the film, Havana is overrun by Zombies while’s Cuba’s Commie leaders insist it’s just a plot by US-backed dissidents to bring down the government. It is up to the hero Juan to rid the island of the undead for money. But as the zombie outbreak begins to spread, he is left with no choice but to fight for his own survival.
The director stated:
"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."
