Uniting all the Jarmusch output are achingly cool casts, indescribably eclectic and wonderful soundtracks – and a joyous disregard for the expectations of anyone who walks into one of his films expecting it to obey the rules of the alleged genre.

This is an end-of-the-world party with an appealing guest list and inviting, eccentric décor.

A bit too arch and remote to fully enjoy as a transportative or emotional piece of entertainment, but for Jarmusch fans and zombie fans, it's a fun little exercise in witnessing the auteur graft his unique sensibility onto the beloved genre.

In spite of itself, The Dead Don't Die remains a Jarmusch joint, to the end. It's still a disarming world to hang out in; you just wish it could have been a little less indulgent.

While the film slips between comedy and horror, it maintains an even tone throughout, with the director's familiar ensemble cast delivering perfect performances...

In-jokes abound and, though the material is slight, parts of the film are pretty funny. But it's a minor Jarmusch, with a running time too protracted for this type of thing.

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.

"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.

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

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

"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."

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.

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.
