Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Film Trailer Review
So what is there to say about the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies official trailer? Well, what can't be asaid about the trailer? The title alone speaks for itself. It is a film adaptation of the 2009 novel by Seth Grahame-Smith parodying Jane Austen's 1813 classic novel "Pride and Prejudice". It is Pride and Prejudice only set in an alternate reality where a zombie outbreak endangers the 19th century England and it is up its English citizen to fight them using a wide arsenal of zombie killing weapons and martial arts. It is so ridiculous but it worked as the 2009 parody novel has been warmly received by critics and became a part of various best seller list (mainly New York Times and later at Amazon). A novel that warmly welcomes classical literature fans and the more contemporary fans of horror, comedy, and zombies.
One shouldn't really be surprised as many bestselling novel have been subjected to various film adaptation and "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" is way up on that list. The film is simply a treat for both classical literature fans whom had enjoyed the Jane Austen novel and modern movie fans into zombies. Who wouldn't want to see 19th century classy English women using martial arts (even Ninjutsu) to fight off hordes of zombies? Let's just hope that this film adaptation gives justice to its source material.
