We regularly hear from readers wondering when Juan of the Dead will receive a wide US release. Only a handful of theatrical dates were previously announced, but a DVD/VOD release date has now been set. Thanks to Dread Central, we now know that Juan of the Dead will be released to DVD and VOD on August 14th.

Additional release formats will be announced at a later date, so we're hoping to get a Blu-ray version as well. The US distribution will be handled by Focus World, the digital distribution initiative that is a part of Focus Features. Those that live in the UK will be able to see the movie much sooner, as it is scheduled for release on June 4th.

Synopsis: “The zombie movie world has yet to witness one last stand; Cuba. In the middle of what official media refers as isolated incidents provoked by dissidents paid by the US government, in a Havana filled with flesh eating zombies, one hero, Juan, comes to the rescue.

The only way to kill the zombies is to destroy their brains, so Juan realizes there is an upside to the situation, and sets-up a ‘Zombia Busters hotline’ with the tagline ‘We kill your beloved ones’ and business takes off. Mayhem has never been this funny, or politically charged.”
