Juan Of The Dead (2011)

Directed by: Alejandro Brugu├ęs
Country: Cuba

Plot: 50 years after the Cuban Revolution, a new Revolution is about to begin.
Quick comment: A business opportunity arrives for Juan and his crew, after a strange epidemic starts to invade Cuba. It was funny how the movie played with Cuban politics and zombies. The gags and dialogs worked fine. As for the rest, it doesn’t succeed so much. The imagery is similar to other horror movies, trying to impress through its violence and savagery. Clumsy and gradually tiresome, this is a movie of jokes, pretending to be more than that.
Relevant awards: Audience award (Miami); Silver Raven for its sense of humor and lead actor performance (Brussels).
