Juan hits DVD

After a short run at UK cinemas, Cuba's first, full length, horror film is coming soon to DVD. Now with that out of the way, I have been sent over a nice new clip from the film to keep you amused as well as the cover for the DVD.

The clip is very reminiscent of the scene in Shaun of the Dead where Shaun goes to the corner shop for his cornetto.

Following in the witty and gory footsteps of Shaun of the Dead, comes Cuba’s first full-length horror film, JUAN OF THE DEAD!

JUAN OF THE DEAD tells the blood-drenched tale of a slacker who decides to save Cuba from an invasion of cannibalistic zombies. As the zombies turn Havana into a gory circus of flying limbs and severed heads, the nightly news anchors continue to calmly assert the government line, that the attacks are not the work of the undead but dissidents in the pay of the United States. Scattered with allusions to traumatic moments in Cuba’s recent history, this is a zombie film with real satirical bite.
Juan of the Dead is available on DVD from June 4th.
