Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England is faced with a new challenge — an army of undead zombies.
“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is a movie with a title that clearly isn’t to be taken too seriously. I mean, what will it be next: “Hamlet and the Zombies?” or, “The Old Man and the Sea and the Zombies?” Jane Austen probably didn’t see this coming when she wrote her classic novel. At the same time, the movie contains very scary images, with scenes that would fit right in with “The Walking Dead.” The film contains zombies, zombies, and more zombies, and many of them with rotting flesh and gaping large holes in their heads. They like to eat gross things.
The film’s story is based in England during the 19th century, and the zombies are taking over and very fond of eating human brains. It’s hard to believe, but the movie does include some romantic scenes. If this all sounds bizarre, it is, although zombie fans might find something they like. The movie does have a creepy tone to it, with images of rainy woods and tense moments when zombies lurk nearby. However, the violence is just too gory for us to award this film our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
