Goofs

When the sisters are dressing for the dance at the beginning of the film, they are shown sheathing several styles of daggers which were not manufactured until the 20th century. This includes an Applegate-Fairbairn fighting knife which was designed by Rex Applegate and William Fairbairn in 1941. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Elizabeth Bennet: It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains. Never was this truth more plain than in the recents attacks at Netherfield Park, in which an entire household was slaughtered by a horde of the living dead during a whist party.

5.8 at the time of this writing. Really? Why all the hate?
12 March 2017 | by aphrodisiaciixSee all my reviews

Don't understand the haters and critics. The film is well directed, well acted, with a very fresh twist of Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". The costumes and scenery are top notch and very believable of the period. Even the zombies are done just right and not over the top gore. All the actors and actresses are very convincing in their characters and that keeps the audience engaging to the end. Even the color tones are just perfect through out the movie.

Just for the entertainment value alone, this film should be rated much higher than 5.8. To be fair, it should be in the 7.5 to 8.5 range. I give it a solid 8.
