Pride and prejudice and zombies

I love zombies.  I love them in ways that are best left to the imagination.  hmmmm… I likes ’em.  Let’s just leave it at that.

However, even though I love them I’m also the first to admit that it’s a genre that is in dire need of some fresh meat…. You see what I did there?  That was a pun.  It was “punny” I tell you.  Okay I’m sorry I’ll stop that.

Anyway, zombie stories need new ideas.  They need them desperately.  If I see one more terribly acted “pot boiler” type zombie movies with the same tired viral zombies attacking a bunch of twenty year olds I’m going to scream…. Then I’ll cry.  Then I’ll probably have to sit down and catch my breath for a while.

I’m really out of shape.

So I’m really happy to finally have the trailer for “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.”  And based on just this trailer, it looks pretty good.

Pride and prejudice and Zombies is based on the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a 2009 parody novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. It is a mashup combining Jane Austen’s classic 1813 novel Pride and Prejudice with elements of modern zombie fiction, crediting Austen as co-author. It was first published in April 2009 by Quirk Books and in October 2009 a Deluxe Edition was released, containing full-color images and additional zombie scenes.  Pride and Prejudice and Zombies’ USA release date is February 5, 2016.

On a personal note.  My wife has forced me to watch many many versions of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.  I truly hate the story, passionately.  I will take great pleasure making my wife watch this version.
