Juan of the Dead is a film that not only gives a new coat of paint to the zombie genre, it pimps it out with flames and adds a pair of fuzzy dice.

Written and directed by Alejandro Brugués, Juan of the Dead mixes the sensibilities and wit of a Looney Tunes cartoon with enough zombie carnage to keep even the most bloodthirsty of horror hounds satisfied. Alexis Diaz de Villegas stars as Juan, the perpetually nonplussed conman who uses a zombie outbreak in Cuba to forge a new business as a professional zombie killer. Featuring outstanding humor, lovable characters and a great sense for mixing horror with humor, Brugués’ film, the first horror film from Cuba, is one of the best zombie movies to venture out in search of brains in the last few years.
