The Dead Don’t Die
2019 | Jim Jarmusch | USA | English | 104 min | R
In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable, and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behaviors. No one quite knows why. News reports are scary and scientists are concerned. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: The Dead Don’t Die — they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living, and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival.
“Jarmusch loads his genre-tweaking experiment with so many of his A-list friends that it’s a gas just hanging out in their company.” –Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
“As always, Jarmusch knows how to get laughs with timing. It’s so integral to his movies that he probably wouldn’t be able to explain how he does it; it’s probably more like waiting for a bird to land on a branch than anything.” –Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine
