Pride & Prejudice Zombies

The zombie movie of Pride & Prejudice is very intriguing and looks very entertaining to view. The movie trailer shows Elizabeth and her sisters fighting zombies to protect her family. It’s very intriguing because it shows Elizabeth and sisters exhibiting a lot more masculine traits than the original movie Pride & Prejudice and the novel itself. The movie shows Elizabeth in a more leadership role than the novel portrays her as a normal England housewife and that to me if very interested to see. instead of seeing her as an average English woman in the movie.

The trailer indeed was an interesting thing to watch and something different from what we have seen about the Pride and Prejudice. Cause before seeing this the story has always been considered a love story but now there are some horror with some action.
