What would a marriage between George Romero and Jane Austen produce? ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’

Well, a really new spin on a much redone classic. I mean every other meme has been done on P & P after all…The review is sadly a pan, but hey still a great gag gift, I would pay to see the film :0)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (Quirk Books, $12.95), (MiM here-  available on Amazon for $7.12), credited to Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith, presents the plot and much of the text from from the classic novel, with the addition of ambulatory rotting corpses in search of living people to devour. The alteration leaves the original surprisingly intact, altering some of the referents and dialogue and adding violent encounters to present a landscape under siege from the living dead.

…Elizabeth, the toughest and fairest of them all, can be followed both taking an intense dislike to Mr. Darcy and tossing a lit flame into a gathering of oil-soaked zombies, while muttering dialogue that serves as hybrid between Romero-movie one-liners and feminine sass. “Let them burn,” she snarls. “Let them have a taste of eternity.”…
