THE DEAD DON’T DIE
2019, Focus Features, 103 min, USA/Sweden, Dir: Jim Jarmusch

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. 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. The horror comedy features the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled, including Jarmusch regulars (Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits) and newcomers to the fold (Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, Carol Kane) in a raucous, rueful and satirical glimpse at American habits and desires at the end of the world.
