‘Malnazidos’, a film co-directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera and Alberto de Toro, tells the story of a group of combatants from the Spanish Civil War on opposing sides who will have to join forces to face a common adversary, the zombies. To achieve this, they will have to put aside their differences and their mutual hatred to avoid becoming one of them. The production kicked off the 53rd edition of the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival of Catalonia in 2020.

The action and adventure film, with touches of fantastic cinema, is written by Jaime Marqués Olarreaga, Alberto Fernández Arregui and Cristian Conti based on the novel ‘Dead Night of ’38’ by Manuel Martín Ferreras. The film has been shot in different locations in Catalonia.

Speaking to ACN, De Toro explains that more than the premise of the union of people from two opposing sides to face a common enemy, they were interested in the idea of ​​Civil War and zombies. In this sense, Ruiz Caldera points out that ‘Malnazidos’ is «an adventure of the fantastic genre. The theme of the Civil War conflict is only a context because it is not a film about war, we wanted to go the other way making an adventure with horror and comedy».

The film stars Miki Esparbé, Aura Garrido, Luis Callejo, Álvaro Cervantes, Jesús Carroza and María Botto. They are accompanied by Manel Llunell, Mouad Ghazouan, Dafnis Balduz and Sergio Torrico. Esparbé puts himself in the shoes of Jan Lozano, a captain on the Francoist side. “He is a character who is initially offered a mission to cross enemy territory and when he does it he is taken over by the Republicans,” he tells ACN. The actor points out that at the beginning of the film the character has a more comical aspect and that he moves from sarcasm and black humor because “it is his tool to battle in the tragedy of war.” As the story progresses, the character darkens.
