Surprisingly Unsurprising and Mediocre
If you read that Jim Jarmusch made a new movie and you read the list of involved actors/musicians the expectation of course just explodes. And if you like zombie movies with comedy elements your expectations hit the Milky Way. Sadly, The Dead Don't Die just don't delivers. Compared with other zombie comedies of high rank, most of the comical or fun moments of The Dead Don't Die just don't work too good. The horror elements are also just rather mediocre and just feel like necessary additions because of the genre. So what's left!? Some reviewers say that there is some references to other movies or the movie business to detect, and/or there is some commentaries on our today's society. That all may be right, but mostly the movie is just very slow and won't satisfy neither the horror nor the comedy audience. On top, even as an arthouse or artsy whatever movie The Dead Don't Dies is rather a weak endeavor. Of course, the actors are not bad and still there is here and there a little shiny moment. My rate is 5 but that's already the highest rate that I can give - and in my view this movie is a great missed opportunity to make something great, especially for the genre.
