The Dead Don't Die (2019)

Rated R for zombie violence/gore, and for language

Quote: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 behaviors. News reports are scary, and scientists are concerned, but no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: the dead rise from their graves and feast on the living, and the citizens must battle to survive.

This movie was very much an acquired taste, and it probably won't be anything more than a cult classic. Yet that taste was one that did work for me. Most of the movie is less zombie horror, more deadpan humor courtesy of Bill Murray and Adam Driver, and they managed to carry it through and give it just the right kind of lazy atmosphere to pull me into its small town setting. The plot is an afterthought, and the satire of climate change and modern society is on-the-nose to the point where I couldn't help but wonder if writer/director Jim Jarmusch was really satirizing the social commentary of Romero's movies, but this is a film powered entirely by its mood, and on that front, it did the job.

My full review is here.

Do you know what it`s like to be told how lucky you are to be someone`s prisoner?
