Synopsis:
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 behaviour. No one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing the town: The Dead Don't Die - they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living - and the citizens must battle for their survival.

Terrible Unfunny Boring Horror Spoof - Avoid - The Dead Don't Die review by PV

Spoiler Alert
03/12/2019

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.

AVOID

Dead try to Bore us all to Death - The Dead Don't Die review by porky

Spoiler Alert
30/11/2019

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 .

'Shaun of the Dead' on tranquilisers, and minus the jokes - The Dead Don't Die review by LC

Spoiler Alert
14/01/2020

The only thing of note in this film are the huge number of big-name character actors - how they agreed to do this project, God only knows, as the script is a boring mess. For the first half of the film, I was willing to forgive the pace as a slow-burn build up, but even when the zombie apocalypse breaks out in full, everything remains sedate. The two main characters drift through events as though sedated on tranquilisers, raising a mildly ironic eyebrow at the events that occur around them, so thre's no real drama here. The postmodern idea that the characters are aware that they are in a film seems potentially interesting, but, like much else in this film, it doesn't really go anywhere. Characters are introduced, and then discarded in flat and uninteresting zombie attacks, or off-screen in some cases (and what was the point with the strand of kids in the detention facility? The storyline literally goes nowhere). There is no new slant on the zombie genre (the final tacked on linking of zombies with consumerism is lifted straight out of Romero's 'Dawn of the Dead'), and the cheap CGI effects mean there isn't any entertaining gore either.

None of this would matter if the script was funny, or clever, but it isn't - and all the great actors in the world can't help that. Stick to 'Shaun of the Dead', or 'Zombieland', and avoid this mess.

Not Jim's best work - The Dead Don't Die review by LC

Spoiler Alert
23/03/2020

Sadly it feels like Jim Jarmusch lost interest in this project. The self-referential jokes become tiring after a while, and the story literally ends in the middle.
