If this movie already has you at “Bill Murray, Chloe Sevigny and Adam Driver play a trio of bumbling cops hunting zombies in Pennsylvania” read no further. For the rest, you won’t be disappointed with this comic horror take on the apocalypse of the undead, caused by polar fracking, one of the many nasty things we’ve been doing to the environment. (Scientists agree on this, OK?) And for any remaining skeptic hipsters out there, this movie is directed by Jim Jarmusch (Stranger Than Paradise, Paterson), the only filmmaker who would cast Tilda Swinton as a Scottish samurai mortician; and maybe less surprisingly, Iggy Pop as one of the undead.

“Funny and arch as it may be, the film’s vein of fatalism is touching and even profound.” Nicholas Barber,
