1st full trailer for crazy Cuban zombie spoof Juan of the Dead

That bizarre zombie spoof Juan of the Dead we told you about last summer—the one that puts a Cuban riff on Shaun of the Dead—has finally shambled to life. And we no longer have to rely on teasers, because a final gory trailer has been released to give us an idea of what happens when zombies overrun Havana.

Of Cuba's first horror film, writer/director Alejandro Bruges says:

"It's a zombie film but it's about Cubans and how we react in the face of a crisis because we've had a lot of them here over the last 50 years. ... It is a social comedy, it has a bit of everything. It has horror, it has action and it pretty much laughs in the face of problems."

Luckily, it looks like both the horror AND the humor will translate.
