Did You Know?

Trivia

This movie contains a few references to Ernie "Ghoulardi" Anderson, the host of "Shock Theatre", a popular late-night horror program that ran on Cleveland television in the 1960s. A poster for Ghoulardi can be seen on the wall of the gas station behind Bobby and at one point in the film, Bobby says "Stay sick" to a group of children, to which they reply "Turn blue, Bobby". "Stay sick" and "turn blue" were catchphrases of Ghoulardi's. Director Jim Jarmusch, who hails from Akron, grew up watching Ghoulardi as a kid and has cited him as an influence on his work. Ernie Anderson is also well-known for being the father of filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson, who named his own production company Ghoulardi Films after the character. See more »

Typical Jarmusch
6 February 2020 | by BreumasterSee all my reviews

It's his dry and sober way of filming. But on the other hand, it was funny at several points. There were scenes, I did really laugh out hard and for quiete some time. If there weren't so many traces between the funny or laughing moments, it would have get a higher rating by me. A very ironical view on the zombie genre. Well, I was entertained and even though this movie is no real burner, I think it's still ok to watch. Bill Murray is great as ever. In my opinion the movie is better than most people rated.
