People Review: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is Gory, Silly and Surprisingly Faithful to Jane Austen

5 February 2016 6:35 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a young woman facing the undead horde must be in want of a knife. Or rather, she does in this version of Jane Austen. Welcome to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, where ladies are valued more for their ability to take a head shot at 20 paces than for their skills on the pianoforte. Based on Seth Grahame-Smith's spirited take on Austen's masterpiece, Pride imagines the undead overrunning London, desperately trying to get at the juicy brains of the country gentry.

Jane Austin’s Bennet Sisters buck societal tradition and prepare for a bloody apocalypse in today’s gothic new poster for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, giving Burr Steers’ imminent genre hybrid one final moment in the sun before its arrival late next week.

Coming by way of Sony Pictures and Resident Evil experts Screen Gems, Steers’ adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith’s novel thrusts Lily James in the famous role of Elizabeth Bennet. Presenting a decidedly different take on growing up on the British aristocracy, the director has teased that the class disparities and longstanding relationship with the Darcys still filters in to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Prodded by the press to speak to “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’s” undesirable ratings, Pedowitz acknowledged that they don’t have the numbers. But, “What we do have is great faith in the show,” he said. “We believe in the show. We stand by the show. It »
