Pride and Prejudice and Zombies - Can it Clear an Exceptionally Low Bar?

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies only had to be better than Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. And it is, if only barely.

I wouldn't point that Mr Darcy is supposed to be cold and dispassionate. Elizabeth only falls in "love" with Darcy after she sees his huge mansion and no that's not a euphemism.

Didn't enjoy the book reading it, don't enjoy a parody with zombies of the same title. And I read the book VOLUNTARILY TOO! (surprisingly, our English teacher at the time had a 'new age' curriculum that included very little in way of classic literature).

I kinda enjoyed Abraham Lincoln : Vampire Hunter in a charmed, dumb sorta way. The one thing that bothered me is; are the vampires supposed to be metaphors for racists/racism? Because they had that in the film too, which is a weird way of metaphoring (that's a word i hope).

Eh, I'm in the school of thought that believes that zombies need to crawl back into their graves for a good 20 years or so. The market is positively over saturated with the living dead...one can't swing a dead cat without hitting a zombie. Lets move on to the next generic "horror" trope, shall we?

Good... Sounds like the perfect movie I would showcase to my grandmother, who is a fan of both period-based entertainment and Jane Austin-based adaptations...

Other than that, will this lead to a Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters movie adaptation? Because that would be the shit!

Yeah, in Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the vampires stand in for slavery, since they view normal humans as beneath them, on the same level as livestock. So, just like the vampires in the Blade trilogy.
