The Dead Don't Die won't scale the heights of Jarmusch favorites such as Down by Law, Dead Man or Paterson, but it's a fun way to watch some of your favorite character actors get devoured by the undead.

Maybe the ambience and irony are enough for diehard Jarmusch fans. But for everyone else, life's too short.
