Who wants another comedy centered around a zombie invasion? I didn’t think so. However, that hasn’t stopped writer/director Alejandro Brugués from putting his own personal spin on this oversaturated subgenre with “Juan of the Dead.” Get it? Judging from the teasers lurking below, the film — a sensitive tale about a 40 year-old slacker’s endeavor to save his country from the living dead — doesn’t look half bad. Of course, I’m unusually enamored with the movie’s hero, who strongly resembles a cross between actors John Turturro and Yahoo Serious. Once you see the first trailer, you’ll know precisely what I’m talking about. I’m not entirely sure when “Juan of the Dead” will make its way to North American television screens, but you can rest assured I’ll be all over it. Besides, what else do I have to do?
