Trivia

Several of the young cast members were inexperienced with making a comedy and would often turn to co-star Sally Phillips, who's a veteran in the field, for advice on how to improve their comic timing and delivery. See more »

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.

Oddly enough... very entertaining
5 February 2016 | by Shane3182See all my reviews

This honestly surprised me.

It goes without saying I was not expecting much from this movie. I have seen various Pride and Prejudice movies before today and did not enjoy any of them out of sheer boredom. Nothing against those movies or their quality but it just wasn't my kind of movie. I assumed that this would be no different and that it would just be the same exact story with a few zombies sprinkled in.

And to an extent, it was exactly that, but there was much more depth to the zombie plot than I anticipated. The zombies were a very large part of the story and even when there was romantic drama there was still a close focus on the zombie aspect. There is always that underlying tension that zombies will strike.

The visuals were not the best but were still very well done. The make-up and effects for the zombies were much higher quality than I thought they would be. And the atmosphere kept a good mix of an old Pride and Prejudice feel while also adding a new element of dark zombie-apocalypse tension that I loved seeing.

There were a few parts that I rolled my eyes at, especially when things got a bit too dramatic between the lead characters Darcy and Elizabeth, but all in all it was a good movie that I enjoyed.

Very surprised to say I give this movie an 8/10.
