JUAN OF THE DEAD, the epic Cuban zombie movie

Zombie movies are inherently good.

Movies with subtitles are typically depressing and bad, and only watchable when you’re in college and think that French existentialism is amazing, that you should wear a black beret and smoke Gallouise Blondes the rest of your life, which will be spent in a cafe in Paris, sipping coffee and eating pan au chocolat as you discuss politics and philosophy with other intellectuals, never mind the fact that YOU DON’T SPEAK FRENCH.

There are two exceptions to the Law of Subtitles.

The first is DEAD SNOW, a Norwegian movie that isn’t just about zombies (yes!) but Nazi zombies (double yes!).

The second exception is JUAN OF THE DEAD, a Cuban zombie movie that isn’t afraid to pile on the craziness.

  1. Dead Snow is absolutely amazing. It’s one of my all-time favorite Zombie movies, regardless of the fact that it’s in subtitles. I think that makes it all the more unique. Definitely something to check out!

  2. Re: Juan of the Dead: That movie just has awesomeness written all over it. Then again, I’m a sucker for zombie stuff, and Cubano culture since I was raised in “Mee”ami.

    Re: Dead Sno: Nazi zombies and what looks like a little pirate chest(?). Sweet. I have no idea what they are actually saying, but I have a feeling I don’t really need to. 🙂

    1. I’ve seen DED SNO, and it is worthwhile.

      Don’t know if JUAN OF THE DEAD is out yet. Will be there on opening day with a giant bag of popcorn.
