The Dead Don't Die Unclassified 18+
Jim Jarmusch reunites with Adam Driver, Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton and an all-star cast for his Cannes-opening, deadpan take on the zombie comedy that simmers with the terror of the present.
The planet’s out of whack, people are getting restless, and in the sleepy town of Centreville, USA, the dead are about to rise from their graves to feast on the flesh of the living – and on all the zombie clichés in movie history.
Jim Jarmusch’s (Paterson, MIFF 2016; Coffee and Cigarettes, MIFF 2004) new horror-comedy assembles a dream team of Bill Murray, Adam Driver and Chlöe Sevigny as droll local cops, Tom Waits as a prophetic hobo and Tilda Swinton as a samurai-sword wielding Scot, with a supporting cast that includes pop superstar Selena Gomez, punk icon Iggy Pop, as well as Steve Buscemi, RZA and Danny Glover. Alternately offbeat and unusually tense, The Dead Don’t Die pays homage to the classic zombie canon while taking a swing at the dead-eyed consumerism of the present.
“A winningly eccentric way to usher in the zombie apocalypse.” – The Telegraph
