Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Commits to Its Premise But Falls Short Where It Counts

5 February 2016 9:31 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The film Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is the rare case of a movie that’s better than the book — at least I’m guessing it is, since I only lasted 15 pages into the novel before tossing it into the can with the rest of the trash. Seth Grahame-Smith (who went on to pen the terrible screenplays forAbe Lincoln, Vampire Hunter and the Tim Burton–helmed Dark Shadows) had a notion that might have inspired a good sketch on the old Sctv series, which made high comic art out of violently yoking together mismatched elements. To Jane Austen’s shapely prose, he appended lines in which the Bennett sisters or Mr. Darcy pause to hack or blow off the heads of marauding flesh-eaters before resuming their uneasy English mating rituals. The best thing about the movie is that you don’t have to invest a lot of time into seeing Austen’s prose manhandled. »

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson

Quite the wonder child of fantasy and horror, Guillermo del Toro has made near masterpieces in the Spanish language but not fared as well breaking through the Hollywood blockbuster barrier. His top-grossing American film might be Blade II. His equally talented compatriot Alfonso Cuarón has »
