Cult Classics presents the Arizona theatrical debut and exclusive Phoenix engagement of the 2012 zombie horror comedy, JUAN OF THE DEAD!
Fast, fun and gruesomely hilarious, Alexander Brugués' horror comedy JUAN OF THE DEAD lends a decidedly Cuban flavor to the zombie genre when a violent outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution. At first, Juan and his ultra laid-back friends are only mildly concerned about this troubling turn of events, reported by the government as being an uprising of unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the regime. But what seems at first to be dissident rumblings in the city soon turns into a full-on flesh-eating zombie onslaught, at which point Juan and his motley gang are forced to engage in some revolutionary acts of capitalism in order to survive, going into business as "Juan of the Dead," a ragtag zombie removal service.
Mixing classic horror, shrewd satire and pointed political commentary, JUAN OF THE DEAD sheds a humorous light on life and politics in modern Cuba as seen through the lens of a zombie apocalypse, playing like a potent Cuban cocktail constructed of equal parts Night of the Living Dead and Shaun of the Dead.
JUAN OF THE DEAD screens at MADCAP Theaters at 5:30pm and 7:30pm on May 17th
