Alejandro Brugués’ blend of gore, camp and social commentary is both a wild and bloody ride through zombie-infested Havana and a bold revelation of how the Cuban ethos — pushing on through political upheaval — uniquely intersects with horror-comedy conventions. The titular Juan becomes the leader of a crew seeking not only to survive, but to profit — offering their services to families who need help in “putting down” their infected loved ones.

Brugués combines a skillfully playful take on zombie mayhem with smartly constructed satire, pitting these uniquely Cuban, utterly likable characters in bloody showdowns with the undead, underlining the resilience and humor borne of decades of waiting on the Revolution.
