Trailer Watch: Juan of the Dead

Latino Review (one of the bigger rumor monger sites I got bored of writing about when I did Movie Make-out) has scored the exclusive trailer debut for Cuba’s first horror movie, titled Juan of the Dead.

Writer-director Alejandro Bruges describes the film: “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.”

Anyway, it’s funny. It’s well-shot. The effects are low-budget but surprisingly good. It’s one to keep an eye out for… whenever it gets into theaters. It’ll probably debut on the festival circuit and score a limited release before turning into a cult hit on video.

  1. A friend of mine worked in the make up for this movie, I’m really excited to see the final product. I’ve worked with her in a short film about zombies so I know her work is going to look amazing.

    • Do you know what the budget was for this? The digital stuff shows it wasn’t very high (not that they look bad — but, like, I could tell the building blocking the sunset was fake before it fell). The practical effects look really good, though.
