Life and death are a part of director Jim Jarmusch’s universe, and these themes are explicitly found in a couple of his movie’s monikers (Dead Man, Only Lovers Left Alive).
With The Dead Don’t Die, Jarmusch delves into the zombie genre, as the denizens of a small town named Centerville must reconcile that they may be on the menu if they lose their battle with the undead.
Tilda Swinton, who previously worked with Jarmusch in Only Lovers Left Alive, plays the town coroner in this all-star filled ensemble (the feature co-stars Bill Murray, Selena Gomez, Adam Driver, and Iggy Pop).
