The Dead Don't Die

The road to survival could be a dead end

Jim Jarmusch’s zombie film is an exuberantly imaginative yet grimly political fable about a world thrown literally out of whack by ‘polar fracking.’ The resultant shift in the Earth’s axis changes the planet’s daylight hours; it also brings dead people back to life, and the small town of Centerville has only three police officers (Adam Driver, Bill Murray, and Chloë Sevigny) to deal with them.

Teaser poster for the killer comedy The Dead Don't DieThe newly undead unleash a spree of cannibalistic carnage that threatens a hermit (Tom Waits), a mechanic (Danny Glover), a racist farmer (Steve Buscemi), a visiting hipster (Selena Gomez), the owner of a diner (Eszter Balint), a movie nerd and gas-station attendant (Caleb Landry Jones), an undertaker and martial-arts wizard (Tilda Swinton), and the rest of the town’s idiosyncratic residents. Jarmusch endows the monsters with a consumerist rage that fuels his vision of a world that’s morally out of joint; with breathtaking breaks of the fourth wall and special effects, he conjures a giddy apocalypse with no way out.
