Trailer Tuesday: Juan of the Dead (English Subtitles)

Doesn't this look absolutely fantastic?




Juan of the Dead is Cuba's first zombie movie, and it looks like director Alejandro Brugues is coming out with a double dose of comedy and some pretty effective zombie mayhem (if this English-subbed trailer is any indication).

In Juan of the Dead, a Cuban slacker named Juan (Alexis Diaz de Villegas) finds Cuba overrun by zombies after the government is slow to react to the epidemic. Seeing a need, Juan creates a business ala Ghostbusters that will exterminate the zombies for a fee.

Of all the upcoming foreign and domestic zombie movies, Juan of the Dead is at the top of my list of films I really want to see.
