Review: The Dead Don’t Die

What a strange little film. The quiet little American town of Centreville is about to have a rude awakening when zombies start rising from the grave. It is up to two unlikely local cops to find a solution, and fast. You might be forgiven to think that The Dead Don’t Die looks like a cross…
