The Dead Dont Die


  • Highly likely to be a cult classic. This isn’t your typical zombie movie, and because of that, I was entertained by it more than I originally expected to be. I found it quite memorably charming.

  • Great cast! From Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, Chloe Sevigny, Tom Waits, plus many more.

  • I have to specifically give a huge shoutout to Adam Driver for absolutely owning this movie with his deadpan humor.

  • There’s a laid-back, irreverent, tongue-in-cheek humor thing going on here that I really appreciated. Especially because those descriptions don’t normally apply to a zombie film.

  • In a very subtle unassuming way, there’s a world building aspect that plays out throughout the movie, that I would love to just dissect.

  • Speaking of playing things out throughout the movie, the running jokes had a nice slow build up to the eventual punch lines.

  • It has a meta self-awareness that pleasantly caught me by surprise, and gave us one of the more WTF exchange of dialogue scenes in this movie.

  • Those WTF moments. Yeah. Good job catching me off guard there Jim Jarmusch.


  • Those WTF moments will make or break your enjoyment of the movie.

  • There are things that happen in this movie that will challenge your suspension of disbelief.

  • The deliberately luxurious unexciting arguably meandering pacing might be seen as dull, boring, or frustrating for some people. Let’s just say that this isn’t a laugh-riot, horror action-fest of a movie.

  • Speaking of frustrating, there are several nonsensical things that are seen in this film that will probably negatively trigger some people.

  • The lack of a proper story, or traditional expectations from a film genre such as this will disappoint some people.

  • The social commentaries might be seen as annoying or too on-the-nose.

  • The conclusion to the movie might make people think that it just didn’t end well at all.
