Pride & Prejudice & Zombies on DVD & Blu-ray & 4K BR!


Anyone who even marginally got in contact with english literature on a scholarly level must have been confronted with the works of Jane Austen (and the Bronte sisters respectively) at some point. And boy was it a dry read if you were not invested in the banter between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy or 19th century Britain's courting rituals and manners.

As a natural coping mechanism, one tends to drift off whilst reading, imagining what might make the story interesting to our modern pop-culture sensitivities. If the additional ingredient of choice is zombies, you are probably already aware of the 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith.

Due to that novel's popularity, we are now treated with a film version of an alternative victorian England where the undead roam the land. The lead roles belong to, amongst others, Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy, a renowned zombie hunter and Lily James as Lizzie, a trained ninja warrior, and former Dr. Who himself, Matt Smith. Love and decapitations occur ...

After the movie version of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and this adaptation, it might just be a matter of time until we get the successors they spawned like Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, Jane Slayre and – definitely on my wish list - Kanye West: Reanimator!
