Juan of the DeadThere’s a new Cuban revolution in comedy movie Juan of the Dead — the undead kind.

Zombies try to take over Havana in the foreign film, and two friends Juan (Alexis Dias de Villegas) and Lazardo (Jorge Molina) launch a zombie extermination service to help rid the city of the hungry undead, as well as make some cash along the way. While the government blames the zombie attack on Americans trying to topple the regime, Juan and Lazardo gather their weapons and make a killing — in more ways than one.

In Spanish with English subtitles, the unrated Juan of the Dead is written and directed by Alejandro Brugues (Personal Belongings) and gives a wink to the British comedy-horror Shaun of the Dead.
