In SHAUN OF THE DEAD, Shaun (SIMON PEGG) is an ordinary and unambitious 29-year-old sales manager at an appliance store in London. Not only is his flat-mate, Pete (PETER SERAFINOWICZ), upset with him over his unemployed freeloader friend Ed (NICK FROST) staying with them, but Shaun is also in the doghouse with his girlfriend of several years, Liz (KATE ASHFIELD). She’s disappointed that he forgot their anniversary and that things haven’t changed between them, despite him promising just that. Accordingly, she breaks up with him, much to the delight of her friends Diane (LUCY DAVIS) and David (DYLAN MORAN).

 

While dejected, Shaun has more to worry about that than just that. Something has somehow caused the dead to come back to life as zombies and it’s not long before the city is crawling with them. After hearing that the way to deal with the living dead is to remove their heads or injure their brains, Shaun and Ed proceed to do just that.

 

Realizing they need to get somewhere that’s both safe and familiar, however, they decide to head to their local pub, but not before picking up Shaun’s mom, Barbara (PENELOPE WILTON), stepdad, Philip (BILL NIGHY) and Liz if they can convince her to come. She reluctantly does, along with Diane and David, and the survivors then make a perilous and funny journey to the pub where they hope to find sanctuary against all of the zombies that want them dead.

 

 

JUAN OF THE DEAD (Spanish with subtitles) is a 2012 Spanish-Cuban zombie film written and directed by Alejandro Brugués.

 

Fast, fun and gruesomely hilarious, Alexander Brugués’ horror comedy JUAN OF THE DEAD lends a decidedly Cuban flavor to the zombie genre when a violent outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution. At first, Juan and his ultra laid-back friends are only mildly concerned about this troubling turn of events, reported by the government as being an uprising of unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the regime. But what seems at first to be dissident rumblings in the city soon turns into a full-on flesh-eating zombie onslaught, at which point Juan and his motley gang are forced to engage in some revolutionary acts of capitalism in order to survive, going into business as “Juan of the Dead,” a ragtag zombie removal service.

 

Mixing classic horror, shrewd satire and pointed political commentary, JUAN OF THE DEAD sheds a humorous light on life and politics in modern Cuba as seen through the lens of a zombie apocalypse, playing like a potent Cuban cocktail constructed of equal parts Night of the Living Dead and Shaun of the Dead.
