Dialogue
How do you make a zombie movie interesting in this day and age? They pretty much blend together and the subgenre is fatigued. The cast of The Dead Don’t Die will surely attract the most disillusioned horror fans: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Steve Buscemi, Danny Glover, Selena Gomez, Carol Kane, and the list goes on. They all act the same way for an unknown reason. It’s fascinating!
These guys obviously found the script invaluable, which is convincing in itself. Interestingly, all actors were asked, as a guideline, to act amorphously. Like zombies. Every line of dialogue is delivered painfully and gracelessly. These townsfolk are numb, lazy, and unimpressible. The humor is tongue-in-cheek. You won’t laugh from beginning to end, but you’ll smile a lot.
The zombies look very much alive. They aren’t your generic living dead. They talk, drink coffee, and are self-aware. The special effects are convincing and comical. Writer and director Jim Jarmusch walks the extra mile in every aspect of this film. When all is said and done, though, I’m not sure this production deserves its all-star cast. In fact, this movie isn’t much without them.
