Terrible Unfunny Boring Horror Spoof - Avoid
- The Dead Don't Die review by PV
I watched 40 minutes of this then gave up - IT IS AWFUL. A silly horror spoof which thinks it is so funny but isn't.
A great cast wasted. Most 'jokes' fall flat - esp breaking the fourth wall.
Awful film, bad over-rated director.

Dead try to Bore us all to Death

Typically Jarmusch slightly off the wall take on the old Zombie Apocalypse Trope.
Very Slow Moving Characters take the Zombie Build up in at Dreamlike Slowness, Reacting as if on Slowdown Drugs in a small town where Nothing much Happens.
Don't expect Belly laughs , it s amusing at best .
Funniest scene in my mind was the New Wave makeup in the morgue scene .
Nicely Acted Parts,All Star Cast ,Very Low Key Script ,Nothing Much Happens At All.
Zombies Take Over with almost No Resistance and the Locals just walking Blindly to their Deaths .
Watchable but only just....you may feel like turning it off half way through out of Boredom .

Blimey this film is rubbish, very slow, very boring! With all the famous people in this we were all very disappointed.

Not as good as expected
- The Dead Don't Die review by PB
I rented this film because it had Tom Waits, Bill Murray et al acting, and it was horror.
Waits’ role in the film was as an observer of the townsfolk from his home in the woods and from his perspective they all seemed a bit stupid.
The Earth had been moved from it’s axis and for some reason it had caused the dead to rise from their graves. Zombies began their usual stuff and Policeman Murray etc. tried to stave off the tide of the dead. As a Waits song this may have been quite good, but as a film it appeared to me to be lacking in substance.
It may have been about how mankind seems to be drifting towards extinction and there is a nudge toward Romero’s Zombie shopping mall but overall the film lacks conviction and the ‘irony’ just make it seem to drag.
