Jim Jarmusch is an interesting filmmaker, with an eclectic body of work. So, when I first saw he was directing a Zombie movie, I thought it was a joke. The news/trailer broke around the same time as this year’s April Fools Day, so you can forgive me for being skeptical. After I saw the trailer, and realized the cast involved in this movie, it became immediately a must-see for me. Unfortunately I missed it in the theater. It’s been a busy summer season, and I just never found the time. Thankfully Universal will be releasing the film to Digital on September 3rd, and DVD & Blu-ray on September 10th. Stay tuned for my review, and see below for the official press release for further details.

Showcasing exclusive bonus features not seen in theaters including insight from the cast and filmmakers, as well as a closer look at the making of the film that takes fans deeper into this “giddy apocalypse with no way out” (Richard Brody, The New Yorker). Starring Academy Award®† winner Bill Murray (Olive Kitteridge, Lost in Translation, Ghostbusters), Adam Driver (Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, BlacKkKlansman) and Chloë Sevigny (“The Act,” Boys Don’t Cry), THE DEAD DON’T DIE is a “hilariously fun” (Adam Patterson, Film Pulse) and irreverent film unlike any you’ve seen before.

In the sleepy small town of Centerville, something is not quite right. The moon hangs large and low in the sky, the hours of daylight are becoming unpredictable and animals are beginning to exhibit unusual behavior. No one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing the town: THE DEAD DON’T DIE – they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living – and the citizens must battle for their survival.
