Jarmusch loads his genre-tweaking experiment with so many of his A-list friends that it's a gas just hanging out in their company.

The star-studded ensemble cast-which features numerous Jarmusch veterans, among them Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Steve Buscemi, and Tom Waits-seems to be having loads of fun, which adds to the ingratiating vibe.

The Dead Don't Die is delivered in one long, deadpan note. Some of the sight gags and quips are gold; others are just filler, but still kind of interesting in a wacky sort of way.

The Dead Don't Die is a notably sour movie, especially coming from someone like Jarmusch, whose previous work always seemed deeply affectionate about human weirdness, but who in this one basically waves humanity off as deserving its own extinction.

The scary (and gory) things on screen may be zombies, but the real monster here is the troll in the director's chair.

Jarmusch tacks on some commentary about how maybe we're the zombies, drifting aimlessly through our lives. It would have more impact if it didn't feel like he phoned this one in from the land of the undead.

Think of the comedy as the bonus track of a greatest hits package featuring several Jarmusch regulars. It may lack frights but not laughs and with a cast like this, you can bet it's headed for midnight movie cult status.

The Dead Don't Die is so deadpan it could be the first film suffering from negative affect.
June 15, 2019
Occasionally amusing , even inspired , but ultimately disappointing zombie satire from Jim Jarmusch largely wastes the talents of a game cast and is instantly forgettable.

Goofy, appropriately lazy, and actually scary at times.
