Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a decent movie. It is more of a horror comedy than straight horror movie. However it might have been better just to make a straight Pride and Prejudice movie with this cast.

Lily James is pretty good as Elizabeth Bennet. I was not that impressed by the actor playing Mr. Darcy but he was okay I guess. Bella Heathcote was good as Jane. Matt Smith was good as Mr. Collins, his version of the character is a bit more comedic than other versions.

This is a one joke movie and it is stretched too far as a movie. This is based on Seth Grahame-Seth’s best selling novel. That was a one joke novel but the audio book is good.  Also the success of this novel lead to Grahame-Seth’s Abraham Lincoln Vampire Slayer.

The movie ends with a post credits cliff hanger.  (There were sequels to the novel.) However the movie didn’t open well, so perhaps there will not be a sequel.

I guess there won’t be a movie of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters.
