PRIDE AND PREJUDICE AND ZOMBIES (Theatrical Release UK 2016)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies—
interesting re-interpretation of the Pride and Prejudice story—works as a parody of the original story while adding interesting features to the sister’s skillsets and plans for marriage. Comical addition of zombies to this straight-laced Victorian drama plays with the mind to rework a rather slow and time-worn British story into something fresh. It even adds zest to the overworn zombie theme that has been the modern rage but is running its course. Be aware that this film is quite gory and violent. It is adult themed and particularly targets audiences who are attracted to zombie movies.
