Very funny movie with some good special effects for CUBA!!

The perfectly titled "Juan of the Dead" is a movie I wanted to see and thought I'd almost assuredly like.

I have an unrelenting fascination with all things undead. But with the current zombie craze reaching an all time high, it seems like every other movie, TV show, and book features my flesh eating friends! There's a LOT of contemporary zombie action, so it's becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish something truly special from the crowded pack. The perfectly titled "Juan of the Dead" is a movie I wanted to see and thought I'd almost assuredly like. I assumed it would be an amusing, if not particularly substantial, addition to the undead canon. Well, not only did I like it, I LOVED this little Cuban film. (Yes, it is in subtitles). It takes familiar horror and survivalist themes and filters them through a deceptively smart and engaging screenplay. What's more, it is absolutely hilarious! I laughed out loud often in "Juan of the Dead" and that came as somewhat of a surprise to me. It is simultaneously silly AND witty. An astute political satire, an unusual cultural commentary, a non-stop splatter-fest, as well as a feast of slapstick mayhem: "Juan of the Dead" has emerged as one of my favorite films this year, a truly memorable horror comedy.

First, the film benefits greatly from its Cuban flavor which, right off the bat, makes it feel different from other comparable films. Juan (Alexis Dias de Villegas) is an irresponsible slacker who wastes most of every day with his clueless best friend Lazardo (Jorge Molina). The two actors play off each other so well, it's hard not to laugh at just about every interaction they have. Without much explanation, they start to notice unusual changes to their surroundings. With reports of a strange flu, a movement of alleged political dissidents, and a suspected American plot, the news reports seems to have figured out what is going on.

I waited months to see this movie and when it finally was shown in NYC, I invited my friends to go see it with me. The movie definitely exceeded my expectations and my friends loved it.

Juan de los Muertos is funny as hell and very witty. Without creating political debates, it delves into Cuba's political background and social reality in a humorous way.

The actors, some good, some not so much, were very enjoyable to watch. They had great chemistry and it really felt as if they were having a blast doing this movie. You really fall in love with these characters.

The graphics were better than I expected, given that I had read some negative reviews about that. I actually liked them. I mean, this is a zombie movie, you don't want it to look like some slick Hollywood production.

I figured this would be a parody of Shaun of the Dead. It wasn't really. It might end up as iconic as Shaun of the Dead someday though.

It was more of a funny look at Cuba and Cuba/American relations set to a zombie Apocalypse. There wasn't a lot of gore, as far as gore goes, but there were deaths. Lots of deaths. Lots of funny deaths. Hilarious deaths.

The movie does sort of just come to an end without the problems being resolved in my mind. And not in a cliffhanger kind of way, it just ends unsatisfactorily.

I plan to show this movie to people as often as possible.

If you like Zombies, watch this. It is really that simple. It contains some scenarios that I have never seen and it is very original. The cultural difference (from America) enriches this movie and even the end credits are cool.

I heard about this movie on KPBS radio in San Diego because they were screening it at local film festival. It sounded intriguing but I missed the film festival. When I Googled it I saw that it was coming out on DVD only days later and that I could get it from Amazon. It may have been my best Amazon purchase ever!

It does an incredible job taking the comical zombie genre to Cuba with an excellent set of characters that keep you laughing all the way through. The characters definitely take some shots at the Cuban socialist system while still keeping their Cuban pride, but creating a capitalistic approach to dealing with the islands zombie problem. "Juan of the dead, we kill your loved ones, how can we help you?"

The film is incredibly clever and worth reading the subtitles if you don't know Spanish. I can't imagine anyone that enjoys a good zombie flick not loving this movie.

I have been into zombie movies and books for 30 years. In the last few years they have gotten stale and boring. This movie is as fresh as it can get! Fantastic movie from the land of Castro. Its got it all if you like good makeup and watching the normal guy fighting zombies without it being too unrealistic then it's a must watch for the true zombie movie fan. It's about a loser and his buddies taking a bad situation and trying to turn a profit. Really funny and serious when it need to be. Heck it even ends with Sid Vicious's My Way. If you liked Shaun of the Dead and Tokyo Zombie then you will love this movie because its way better then both combined! Your collection will not be complete without this amazing movie.

This is a great movie that I watched in one of my classes. I liked it so much that I had to buy it and share it with my family. They also liked it a lot. It's very political and has humor that is more easily understood if you are bilingual in English/Spanish, understand some Cuban expressions, and know a bit about the history of Cuba. Otherwise, the zombie apocalypse of the "disidentes" won't make a lot of sense. Either way, this is a hilarious movie that you can enjoy with friends and older family- there is some nudity, lots of violence (zombies!), and strong language. Great purchase!
