The peaceful town of Centerville finds itself battling a zombie horde as the dead start rising from their graves.

Starring: Bill Murray, Adam Driver, Tom Waits, and Chloe Sevigny

Written and directed by: Jim Jarmusch

 Bill Murray and Adam Driver teamed together…unusual but could work. Leading a cast of stars including, Tilda Swinton, Tom Waits, Chloe Sevigny, Danny Glover, and Selena Gomez…why not? To top if off fighting the undead…sounds good! Or maybe not!
  “The Dead Don’t Die” takes place in the small town of Centerville. A very slow moving town where nothing much seems to happen. In a way, it’s kind of like the movie. The movie takes on the pace of a slow moving zombie, and never picks up. The audience will sit there waiting for that kick ass zombie fighting scene to come, but sorry it never does. Yes, there's a little zombie fighting, but there’s not much to get excited about.
  Another thing the audience will be waiting for is the true Bill Murray to make an appearance because zombie Bill is all they get. Officers Robertson (Bill Murray), Peterson (Adam Driver), and Morrison (Chloe Sevigny) are suppose to serve and protect, but of course the dead aren't going to die if they pretty much do nothing to stop them! If they aren’t standing by the window of the police station, they’re driving around watching the zombies destroy the town. There are many scenes when Robertson and Morrison are just there having an extremely casual conversation about whatever is going on. It’s there that you would expect a great line from Bill, but nothing. These awkward scenes seem to fit Adam better, and one of the funniest things in the movie involves him instead.
  As for the rest of this cast of stars, they might as well all be zombies too. By the time any of their characters get anywhere, they die! They truly could’ve got any actor to play most of those roles. Probably the only interesting character is Zelda (Tilda Swinton) just because she’s so weird, and has one of the most random things happen to her in the end. 
  It’s a real shame they couldn’t do more with this movie. They do something intriguing by having the zombies come back drawn to their favorite items, or activities when they were alive. It would have been nice to see more of them then some of the useless scenes of the living. One of the taglines for “The Dead Don’t Die” is “the greatest zombie cast ever disassembled.” With the zombie like pace, performances that could’ve been done by anyone, and need for more zombie action, they should never have been assembled to begin with. Because this movie should be put back in the grave, I give it one pool of blood!

Horror Movie Survival Kit

Man Crates is a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that he has to open with a crowbar! At Man Crates, it is their mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with buying gifts for men.  And what does Man Crates have to do with horror? Well, while they have a wide assortment of crates, they also have horror themed ones like their "Zombie Survival Crate." Someone at Man Crates asked me to create my own Horror Movie Survival Kit as part of their Halloween celebration so here we go! Us horror fans know that is usually takes a lot to survive a horror film. A lot of it comes from the person's will to live, and a little luck. Obviously those things don't come in a crate, so lets start by thinking about the kind of horror movies we could end up in. We have zombies, vampires, werewolves, ghosts, aliens, end of the world scenarios, and even sharknados! Even with a crate I'm not sure we could be totally prep


  After Melissa and her family seek shelter from a storm, they become trapped. With no sign of rescue, Melissa comes to realize that she and her girlfriend Amy might have something to do with the horrors that threaten her family. Starring: Lisette Alexis, John James Cronin, Pat Healy, Vinessa Shaw and Sierra McCormick Directed by: Sean King O’Grady Written by: Max Booth III A Popcorn Frights Film Festival Review   How many horror movies come to that part when a character says, “We Need To Do Something?” A big storm has hit, and forced a family to hunker down in one of their bathrooms for safety. Parents Diane (Vinessa Shaw) and Robert (Pat Healy) figured that was the best place to be with their teen daughter Melissa (Sierra McCormick), and young son Bobby (John James Cronin). In a way it turns out to be a good decision because a tree comes down onto the house destroying part of it. The family is safe except for one thing.   The tree has blocked the bathroom door, and left them stranded
