Whilst it seems that there's a new zombie film being released almost every week, the genre was beginning to get as rotten and shambling as the walking dead themselves. So thank you Juan of the Dead for being a great zombie film. In fact not just a great zombie film but a good comedy as well that had me laughing on more than one occasion.

The story follows Juan and his friend Lazaro, a couple of jobless slackers just trying to do what they can to get by from one day to the next. Of course things are about to change when the walking dead start taking to the streets and munching on the neighbourhood. Not one to pass by an opportunity to make some money Juan hits on the idea of starting a zombie killing business whereby he (and a few companions) will dispose of your zombified relatives and houseguests...for a fee of course.

For those that aren't aware, the film is Cuban so you are going to have to read subtitles. For me that's not a problem as I do watch quite a lot of subtitled movies. I didn't notice any problems with the subtitling; they were easy to read and nicely paced so that at no time did I miss what was being said and find myself having to rewind in order to read them again.

I found it refreshing to see a familiar genre from an unfamiliar cultural viewpoint, this being the first Cuban film I think I've ever seen.

There are also numerous references to other movies littered throughout, ranging from Enter the Dragon to Braindead and they're nicely implemented making them seem like they are there because the filmmakers are fans of the films being referenced as opposed to showing them in an attempt to be clever.

Format: DVD
Yes another Zomedy and what can be wrong with that, this one sees Cuba finally lurching slowly onto the Zombie comedy bandwagon, and they do so with style and élan. It stars Juan who with best mate Lazaro does fishing on a home made raft, he quite clearly is not a shining example of success from the worlds leading socialist island.

He has a thing for the ladies and he is separated from his wife and his daughter is fairly unimpressed with the ageing Lothario. Then strange things start to happen around the island involving what the authorities call `dissidents' that are clearly sponsored by the US government. It doesn't take too long for extreme acts of dissidents to spread and soon Zombies are appearing all over the place.

Meanwhile Juan and some of his neighbours are holed up in his flat, that clearly needs a lick of paint, and they weigh up their options and decide to fight back and as in all good comedies, hilarity does ensue. The band of freedom fighters are a very Motley Crew indeed which include a Muscle Mary who faints at the sight of blood and they use any weapon they can from nun chucks to boat paddles - genius.

This is a brilliant and refreshing film which although it has Zombies at its core has a great big heart that it wears on its sleeve all tied up with more gags than you can shake a stick at. It has very good sub titles and runs to just over an hour and a half and I enjoyed every minute of it. If you are a fan of comedy or zombies or like something a tad off the beaten track then I am sure you will enjoy this.

Zombie fans will all have heard - and probably watched - the British zombie romantic comedy, Shaun of the Dead, so, what does Cuba's film industry have to say on the subject?

First of all they're probably not doing themselves or the film any favours by blatantly copying an existing film. People will think it's just a rip off, when it most certainly is not.

Okay, so the two do share some common traits: zombies (obviously), humour, gore, lovable losers fighting to survive etc. However, believe it or not, Juan does stray into enough new territory to make it worth a watch. First of all, it's seriously darker than Sean - the `heroes' make some pretty self-centred decisions along the way (good fun to watch), also the back-drop is different enough to warrant a mention. Gone are the familiar streets of London and instead we see life in Cuba. Whereas Shaun and his mates simply wanted to escape the zombie menace, Juan and his band decide that they're okay with it. They simply lock themselves in their house and start up a new business where they offer to charge people money to kill/dispose of their loved ones!

All in all, if you like dark, gory comedy (and have a thirst for watching the undead in action), give it a go - maybe one day Shaun and Juan can get together over a pint and glass of rum and swap tips on the best way to deal with an undead outbreak.

Oh, and be prepared for subtitles with Juan (they kill the only English-speaking character pretty quickly!).

Wasn't sure what this would be like, but as a collector of zombie movies I thought i'd give it a go. I was glad I did,very funny and quirky, not your usual zombie film, characters were different, each with there own unique styles lol
If your a zombie film fan then you need this for your collection, specially for the price.
