Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (review)
As you can tell from the title, this Jane Austen classic has added the undead to the story of social class and romance. Sounds like it could be campy fun, but the filmmakers have taken it very seriously. Sure, the Bennett sisters dispatch zombies with kickass efficiency (and overdone editing), but too much of this film is taken up with the amorous interactions. The only variation from the serious approach is the prissy parson (played hilariously by Dr Who’s Matt Smith). Surprisingly, the traditional tale is pretty effectively told, but better versions have already been made. We want more zombies!
