I swear I’m not making this up. Someone actually decided to butcher Jane Austen’s classic story by adding zombies to the plot. Bad move. Based on the 2009 novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, the movie follows five sisters in 19th Century England and their quest to marry wealthy businessmen while having to deal with an army of zombies. What was meant as a twist on a traditional genre quickly turns into a shrieking bore of a zombie flick. Director Burr Steers has no faith whatsoever in his material, so he throws in one boring zombie killing scene after the other. Ultimately, more more more adds up to less less less. What a mess!
