Jane Austen is the latest to undergo the Seth Grahame-Smith treatment after Abraham Lincoln’s history was rewritten with vampires. But, instead of bloodsuckers, Elizabeth Bennet & co. are faced with the undead horde. The results aren’t as fun as that sounds, I’m afraid. The Pride and Prejudice bits work better than the zombies ones, but I’m passed caring about Austen’s over-told tale.
Talented cast and a funky pop-up book history lesson sequence aside, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies simply doesn’t work. Steers never fully wrangles the mashup, and we’re just left with boring schlock.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is out now on Digital Download, DVD, Blu-Ray & VOD.
