The unmistakable irony of Jim Jarmush meets once again a theme dear to the horror genre. After the decadent vampires presented in the film Only lovers left alive, the American director uses zombies to communicate and confirm the horror that inspires him in the modern world.
In The Dead Don't Die, the disproportionate abuse of the planet's resources has caused the polar cap to fracture and shift the earth's axis, swapping the day with the night and awakening the dead from eternal rest. The events take place in Centerville, somewhere in Ohio, where to defend the order and the town there are only Cliff Robertson, chief of police, Ronnie Peterson, an agent who seems to know everything about zombies and the eradication of the living-dead and Mindy Morrison, a scared policewoman who would like to escape far away. Attached to their earthly fixations and determined to devour every living thing, the zombies will also have to contend with Zelda Wiston, funeral director and katana virtuoso.
