From writer-director Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Down By Law, Dead Man, Ghost Dog, Broken Flowers, Paterson…) comes a star-studded horror comedy featuring a cast of Jarmusch regulars (Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Chloë Sevigny, Tilda Swinton, Iggy Pop, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits), along with newcomers Selena Gomez, Danny Glover, Caleb Landry Jones, & Carol Kane. Filmed at two diners in Columbia County, The Dead Don’t Die was largely produced right here in the mid-Hudson Valley. In their honor, staff from the Elizaville Diner will walk the red carpet and gather for a group photo at the late show on June 14th. Come on opening night and root them on!
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 behaviors. No one quite knows why. News reports are scary and scientists are concerned. But no one foresees the strangest and most dangerous repercussion that will soon start plaguing Centerville: The Dead Don’t Die — they rise from their graves and savagely attack and feast on the living, and the citizens of the town must battle for their survival. A raucous, rueful, and satirical glimpse at American habits and desires at the end of the world, The Dead Don’t Die is a comically terrifying state of the nation addressed in a true cinematic original.
