Plot summary

What is The Dead Don't Die movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Dead Don't Die" movie plot summary.

In rural Centerville, police officers Cliff Robertson (Bill Murray) and Ronnie Peterson (Adam Driver) respond to a report from farmer Frank Miller (Steve Buscemi) regarding a missing chicken, and briefly interact with Hermit Bob (Tom Waits), a baroquely bearded eccentric, in the woods. On their way back to the station, Cliff notices there is still daylight after 8pm and Ronnie's watch and cell phone stop working. Later, at a diner, hardware store owner Hank Thompson (Danny Glover) hears a radio report about polar fracking.
Two zombies reanimate when night falls and kill the two diner employees, Fern (Eszter Balint) and Lily (Rosal Colon), who are discovered by Hank the next morning. Ronnie believes zombies killed the employees. Young travelers Zoe (Selena Gomez), Jack (Austin Butler) and Zack (Luka Sabbat) stop for gas and meet Bobby.
At the Centerville Juvenile Detention Center, Geronimo (Jahi Di'Allo Winston) tells fellow inmates Olivia (Taliyah Whitaker) and Stella (Maya Delmont) that polar fracking has altered the Earth's rotation.
Cliff and Ronnie find open graves at the cemetery, while Hermit Bob spies on them. Cliff emphatically rejects Ronnie's suggestion of informing Miller of the general suspicion that zombies are on the loose. Ronnie teaches Cliff how to kill zombies, and Bobby and Hank prepare weapons. Motel owner Danny Perkins (Larry Fessenden) watches news about pets behaving strangely and then finds out his cats are missing. Other of Farmer Miller's animals have disappeared.
That evening, more zombies rise, and Danny is attacked and transformed. Cliff and Ronnie bring supplies to the station and tell fellow officer Mindy Morrison (Chloë Sevigny) about the zombies. The corpse of Mallory reanimates in the police station and Ronnie decapitates her.
