Juan, a fortyish slacker, ekes out a living in Havana through occasional fishing expeditions with his friend Lázaro. When a rising zombie apocalypse threatens the city, he first ignores the problem, and then decides to launch a zombie extermination service. The Cuban government and media claim that the living dead are dissidents revolting against the government on the anniversary of the Cuban Revolution, and, as events spiral further out of control, Juan and his gang are forced to find a way to survive. Presented as part of the Bank of America Free Thursday Film Series.
2011; directed by Alejandro Brugués; Spanish with English subtitles; 100 minutes; not rated.
