The dead don't die, and neither does the zombie genre, with Jim Jarmusch's slim but fun hipster take on the format's familiar tropes.

We come to Jarmusch for his unmistakable dry wit and rejection of convention, yet The Dead Don't Die feels oddly conservative in places - though Driver and Swinton alone are enough to keep the hunger at bay.

Screen International

"A wry, bitter sense of resignation permeates "The Dead Don't Die," an off-kilter zombie film by Jim Jarmusch which sees very little in the world that is worth saving."

The Guardian

It's always viewable in its elegant deliberation and controlled tempo of weird normality - and beautifully photographed in an eerie dusk by Frederick Elmes.

Vanity Fair

Caleb Landry Jones, as the resident awkward-nerd fanboy, also gets some stuff to play-but otherwise, this richly assembled cast goes to waste.

"The Dead Don't Die" fancies itself a cutting-edge macabre comedy, but the truth is that it's behind the curve of pop culture. That's why it's a disappointing trifle.

Vox

Though The Dead Don't Die feels like a gently resigned take on the apocalypse, what lurks below is a pessimism and maybe even nihilism that feels very much of a piece with our time.
