Back in July, the trailer for Juan of the Dead received a lot of attention and the film will be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival. This year's festival will be taking place from September 8 - 18, with Juan of the Dead being part of their "Contemporary World Cinema" programming. A new batch of official stills from the film have been released and we've included them for you to see.

"Fast, fun and hilarious, Alexander Brugués’ 2nd feature film, Juan of the Dead, gives a decidedly Cuban touch to the zombie genre when an outbreak hits the island on the anniversary of the revolution. Juan and his friends are determined to conquer the un-dead, reported by the government as being unruly Americans continuing their quest of undermining the regime. Brugués’s fresh take on the genre is both hilarious, and politically acute."

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
