“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more brains.”


These too-true words kick off the much-loved parody novel Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, the film adaptation of which premiered to glowing reviews last week in Los Angeles.


The timeless tale of love, independence, and impaling the undead stars Lily James as Elizabeth Bennet and Sam Riley as Mr. Darcy with direction by Burr Steers, nephew of Gore Vidal. The premiere itself was as glamorous and polished as the film is gory, with the movie’s stars dressed up in attire that seemed to be an homage to 1800s costuming.


Pride and Prejudice and Zombies opens February 5, just in time for Valentine’s Day because is not general incivility the very essence of love?
