THE DEAD DON’T DIE is directed by Jim Jarmusch and he has helmed such films as BROKEN FLOWERS and ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE. On a side note, the latter is a beautiful film about vampires; check out the review here: https://www.hidefninja.com/2014/09/03/only-lovers-left-alive-blu-ray-review-2/
Like that film, there is a dark and comical personality. There aren’t blatant jokes but there are quick lines and fourth-wall breakage. Adam Driver is funny in the way he looks at things and Bill Murray is great. He plays a guy who doesn’t like all the changes happening today. ?

VIDEO QUALITY:The video is a 1080p AVC presentation that has a very clean look to it. The foliage in the woods pop with brilliant greens. The way things buildings inside and out are colored gives various objects a vintage look. The details in the textures like clothing and skin are crisp. Makeup and the gore are incredibly realistic in this highly detailed transfer. The skin tones are warm when needed and very cold at other times.
AUDIO QUALITY:The audio is a lossless DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 mix. When Hermit Bob is walking through the woods, the sounds of the environments immerses you for the scenes. Music is done well and has a strong presence. The effects in general just come off as light so gunshots and the sounds of the dead could be stronger. The dialogue is prioritized and clean.
