Review: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

14 hours ago | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This review originally appeared in Nathaniel's column at Towleroad...

Lily James, from Cinderella to Zombie Slayer

Pride and Prejudice,” Jane Austen’s classic novel about the Bennet sisters and their suitors, has one of the most famous opening lines in all of literature.

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, an adaptation Jane never could have seen coming despite her gifts, twists the opening line so that we’re no longer talking courtship but hunger; zombies in want of brains. So let’s twist the line again. ‘It is a truth universally acknowledged that pop culture, possessed by the love of fanfic, must be in want of works in the Public Domain!’

Movie Review – Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016)

6 February 2016 4:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, 2016.

Written and Directed by Burr Steers.

Starring Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston, Bella Heathcote, Douglas Booth, Matt Smith, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, Suki Waterhouse, Sally Phillips, Charles Dance, and Lena Headey.

Synopsis:

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.

Slow motion takes over as the Bennet sisters begin unsheathing various types of blades hidden underneath their elaborate Victorian-era appropriate garments (in what is a rather titillating shot), but most crucially, seems to promise that the ludicrous movie titled Pride and Prejudice and Zombies will live up to the level of absurd, stupid entertainment promised. That one quick scene offers essentially everything one could want coming into something so ridiculous; beautiful women dressed to kill that know their way around daggers and swords, »

Film Review: Hard to Find a Point to ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

5 February 2016 8:39 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Having not read this best-selling source novel, I had a hard time understanding the point of “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.’ Amazingly, it falls short as both a zombie movie and a satire of the original Jane AustinPride and Prejudice” story, which was its only achievement as a final result.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Whether the source novel would unlock anything, I cannot know, because I have no desire to pursue the tale beyond the film. As an admirer of Jane Austin’s novel, it was surprising that the screenplay adaptation played it pretty straight, which had no oomph or reaction beyond, “wow, Elizabeth Bennett sure kicks ass in this version.” The zombies existed to show their oozing faces (both puss and blood, Thanks Obama) and to provide the zombies fighters – which included all of the Bennett sisters, Mr. Darcy and other familiar Austin-nites – with fodder for quality kills.

Movie Review: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

5 February 2016 5:21 AM, PST | Destroy the Brain | See recent Destroy the Brain news »

To this day I am still surprised how mainstream zombies have become. Currently there are four television shows and more movies churned out in the last decade than any one person could ever hope to watch. With more titles than a herd of Walkers, filmmakers need to insure their title can stand out from the pack. Along shambles Pride and Prejudice and Zombies hoping to bite a piece out of the box office. But is it memorable?

A mysterious plague has ravaged 19th Century England. Mr. Bennett (Charles Dance) has been training his five daughters their whole life for combat. But Mrs. Bennett (Sally Phillips) is worried about her daughter’s future and wants to marry them all off to wealthy suitors. Daughter Elizabeth (Lily James) lays eyes on Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) at a party and seems quite taken with him. Of course it can’t be that easy »

On Set: Love and Bloodshed in “Pride And Prejudice And Zombies”

It’s not every day that Fangoria is invited to London for a set visit to a Jane Austen-inspired film. What’s not to love—the incredible location, classic language, gorgeous period clothing—oh, and a rotting corpse or two. This, or course, isn’t your typical Austen adaptation, but a reimagining as co-written by Seth Grahame-Smith: Pride And Prejudice […] »

Pride And Prejudice And Zombies – The Review

4 February 2016 6:31 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Zombies make everything better! Jane Austen devotees needn’t worry that the makers of Pride And Prejudice And Zombies have ridiculed her perennially popular story of love among the British upper classes. They’ve merely added zombies to it – an improvement if you ask me! I’ve never had the inclination to read Austen’s novel (I’ve heard it’s good), but I once saw a big screen treatment starring Keira Knightly. This high-concept hybrid adapted from novelist Seth Grahame-Smith’s revisionist tome is one of the more interesting horror movies I’ve seen in a while. Not only does director Burr Steer skirt the edges of camp with Pride And Prejudice And Zombies, he accomplishes a wonderful sense of surrealism and whimsy missing in much modern horror. Here’s a movie that delivers on exactly what its title promises. There are the unmarried Bennet sisters, as well as Mr. »

[Review] Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

4 February 2016 1:53 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

From the opening moments, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies wears its awkward charm on its sleeve. The self-serious Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) has crashed a ball in 19th-century Britain looking for a zombie amidst a gathering of the wealthy. With a neat trick up his sleeve, he manages to root out the flesh-eater and dispatches him without much pretense in violent fashion — from the point-of-view of the zombie itself, sparing us gory details. The bystanders are shocked and appalled. In this world, like most that make up the zombie genre, there are people who seem keenly prepared and able to survive the plague of the undead and those who seem distraught no matter how aware they are of the situation. In the world of Ppz, we have socialites that doddle around in corsets and finery with knives tucked into their garters.

Loosely based on the plotting of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice, »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies review – when the undead are dead boring

4 February 2016 10:08 AM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Wise-cracking Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy slash away at reanimated corpses in a bloody reworking of Jane Austen. But it’s not as much fun as it sounds

Early in Pride and Prejudice Mr Darcy offers his opinion of Elizabeth Bennet to Mr Bingley: “She is tolerable.” Would that I could say the same about this stupid film. Representing the lowest form of mashup, Burr Steers’ ridiculous adaptation is, to be fair, a fascinating example of an idiotic culture gone horribly wrong.

I have not read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (the “Quirk Book classic”, as it is described in the credits) for two reasons. One, life is finite, and two, if I simply had to dig into Seth Grahame-Smith’s oeuvre, I’d choose Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. It has to be said that the first two-thirds of Steers’ film has stretches that aren’t too bad. »

Review: 'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' is an agreeably silly mash-up

3 February 2016 12:40 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

First and foremost, I can't believe this movie actually finally exists. In development since 1921 or thereabouts, this is one of those films that has had roughly 300 different directors attached since it was first announced. At one point, this was going to be a David O. Russell film with Natalie Portman starring, and I'm still not sure what that would have looked like. The thing is, when Seth Grahame-Smith first published his mash-up novel, built onto the skeleton of Jane Austen's classic, I'm going to bet he never imagined how long it would take for this to become a movie, or even that it would be one someday. It felt like a sort of English major goofing around, only to somehow see it become this publishing smash. And all credit to Grahame-Smith, who has made a lovely career out of bending and breaking icons, for actually seeing this through. What »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and 10 Other Adaptations That Jane Austen Never Would Have Anticipated

2 February 2016 2:15 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy has been told again and again onscreen, and each adaptation has in its own way addressed themes of class, social etiquette and romance that Jane Austen wove into the 1813 classic, Pride and Prejudice. But now Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, in theaters Feb. 5, introduces a whole new slew of themes: the undead, for example, and martial arts and lots and lots of blood and gore. The film has Cinderella star Lily James playing Elizabeth, who in this version just happens to be leading a small army of sword-toting society women in »

Flashing the flesh – a history of TV nudity

2 February 2016 7:11 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A Russian soldier in the buff on War and Peace is just another notch on the bedpost of TV nakedness – and proof that a penis can still prick people’s attention

Two decades ago, the screenwriter Andrew Davies gave Colin Firth a skinny-dipping scene in a BBC TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. It has become YouTube’s most popular man-in-water footage that doesn’t involve Tom Daley. Now Davies, in his current BBC1 version of War and Peace, has gone for what is technically known as a longer shot. On Sunday night, a Russian soldier, walking out of a lake, revealed a flash of penis 26 minutes after 9pm – the time known, with unusual appropriateness in this case, as the “watershed” for family viewing.

This shift of a couple of inches between the Austen and Tolstoy adaptations marks another notch on television’s bedpost of flesh-flashing.

'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies': Film Review

27 January 2016 9:23 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It is a truth universally acknowledged that most people will do anything to make money. And really, who's to blame the editor at Quirk Books who first suggested to author Seth Grahame-Smith (he of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter infamy) that there was great potential in mashing up Jane Austen's enduringly popular 19th-century novel Pride and Prejudice with the living dead genre? Ladies must live, bottom lines must be met, and the trends of the moment must be exploited. { "nid": 836557, "type": "video", "title": "'Pride and Prejudice and Zombies' Trailer", "path": "http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/video/pride-prejudice-zombies-trailer-836557",

Review: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies – Surprisingly Feminist and Wickedly Funny

27 January 2016 2:22 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Pride and Prejudice and...zombies? It may sound like a strange combination, but the parody novel written by Seth Grahame-Smith has already hit number three on the New York Times bestseller list, moved up on Amazon's catalog of popular novels from a spot in the 300s all the way up to number 27, and sold over 1.5 million copies worldwide. Mainly derived from Jane Austen's iconic 1813 Regency romance novel, mixed with an impending zombie apocalypse and warrior-trained daughters, this kooky mashup has been received shockingly well, and even spawned several books of the same nature by other authors, hoping to cash in on Smith's clever trend.

Much like the source material, the plot revolves around the Bennet family, consisting of Elizabeth and her four sisters, their mother, who desperately tries to marry the girls off, and their father, who trains them for battle. When a promising bachelor named Mr. Bingley moves »
