"juan of the dead" screening8:00 pm - 9:30 pmIn the spirit of the season, we're showing the epic Cuban zombie flick Juan of the Dead. Eat popcorn & watch Cuban zombies slay and get slayed!
This event is free and open to the public! Donations welcome.
"Juan is 40 years old, most of which he spent in Cuba doing absolutely nothing...Suddenly some strange things start to happen, people are turning violent, attacking one another. Juan was first convinced it’s just another stage of the Revolution. Official media refer to the attacks as isolated incidents provoked by Cuban dissidents paid by the US government.
Little by little Juan and his friends start to realize that the attackers are not normal human beings and that killing them is quite a difficult task. They’re not vampires, they’re not possessed, but they’re definitely not dissidents; a simple bite turns the victim into a violent killing machine and the only way to beat them is destroying their brains.
Juan decides that the best way of facing the situation is making some money out of it. “Juan of the Dead, we kill your beloved ones” becomes his slogan. Juan and his army have a mission to help people get rid of the infected ones around… at a reasonable price."
