This story is based on the novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies written by Seth Grahame. The book written by Seth was a parody on 1813 edition, Pride and Prejudice, which was then written by Jane Austen. Now Burr Steers has come with the idea of making a movie on the parody. 


The film features England in the 19th century where Colonel Darcy arrives to investigate rumors about the presence of Zombies in the locality. The film is a classic tale of relations between lovers of different classes. When Mr. Darcy realizes the threat of zombies has become severe, it is informed to the people in the country that fighting them is the only way to live. The Bennet sisters Elizabeth, Jane, Lydia and Kitty are ready to fight them out.  The Bennet sisters have just returned from China after learning martial arts and weaponry. Mrs. Bennet wants her daughters to get married to wealthy men. When the zombie attack intensifies, Mr. Darcy and all the Bennet sisters along with others come together to fight them out. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth have secretly fallen in love with each other but do not confess it. While Darcy is off to London to fight the dead, Elizabeth decides to help him in the battle. Darcy rescues Elizabeth’s sister from Wickham when it is discovered that he is also among the dead. While fighting it out with Wickham, Darcy shows a bite on his chest. Wickham attacks Darcy from behind but just before he could kill him Elizabeth knocks him down. Darcy is injured and falls unconscious. He later recovers to share his first kiss with Elizabeth. In the end, Elizabeth and Jane get married on the same day with their beaus. 

Star Performances 

Lily James has very gently slid into her role. Sam Riley will amaze you during the movie. Jack Huston was the surprise package from the lot.


The casting of the film was very precise, and each and every aspect was filled. Natalie Portman eventually produced the film after he has refused to do it. The music in the film is a long one. There are about 23 soundtracks during the movie. There are horror and comedy scenes mixed in the film. One should enjoy watching this one.

What’s there?

1.    There are enough action and comedy to keep you entertained throughout the course.
2.    The cinematography is also good with some real life effects. The locations are also very beautiful and surprising.

What’s not there?

The movie may not satisfy the audience after the start great it had. 

If you want to watch something new which looks original as well, then this fits the fodder. You can watch this with both friends and family.
