I’m a big fan of Seth Grahame- Smith’s historical fiction / monster mashup books. I enjoyed both the novel and the movie adaptation of Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter. And next in line of the adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. To be honest, anything with a zombie outbreak warrants attention from me. How will this Jane Austin ‘what-if’ story play out? I can’t wait!
A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.
