Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Romance . Horror . Comedy . Thriller . Action

A zombie outbreak has fallen upon the land in this reimagining of Jane Austen’s classic tale of the tangled relationships between lovers from different social classes in 19th century England. Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) is a master of martial arts and weaponry and the handsome Mr. Darcy (Sam Riley) is a fierce zombie killer, yet the epitome of upper class prejudice. As the zombie outbreak intensifies, they must swallow their pride and join forces on the blood-soaked battlefield in order to conquer the undead once and for all.

    Lumbering, lifeless, and—strange thing to say about a cadaver—almost entirely charmless. Almost entirely because both Lily James, as headstrong heroine Elizabeth Bennet, and Sam Riley, as her brooding suitor Mr. Darcy, make for a delightful onscreen pair.

  • Richard Roeper

    Director Burr Steers...does a nifty job of rocketing from period-piece romance to gory bloodshed, with sprinkles of dark humor here and there.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Clark Collis

    The result should appeal to Austen aficionados and horror hounds alike—which is not a sentence you get to write too often.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    What is most impressive about the final film, adapted for the screen and directed by Burr Steers, is that it gets the Pride and Prejudice side of things right, and that's what matters most.

  • Moira Macdonald and Soren Andersen

    The whole thing, for me, never got past its one-joke premise. Zombies in Austenland! Funny! But … then what? Why, then … More hacking and whacking and cutting and cleaving and heaving (as in bosoms in those Empire-waist frocks); it’s all a horror fan could wish for.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Writer-director Burr Steers delivers a screen mash-up that’s generally done in the right, warped spirit. It lampoons Austen cleverly enough at points, without winking any harder than needed.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Sarah Bryan Miller

    The zombie scenes are startling, but only PG-13 horrifying. That will probably be just fine with most Jane Austen fans.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    For all the splurch and head-lopping, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is monotonal. It turns its action sequences into a noisy blur.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Stephen Kelly

    For the most part a surprisingly fun, bloody take on Jane Austen’s classic – but it does turn stale as the final reckoning approaches.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    The novelty of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies wears thin in the last third: How is it that the threat of a zombie apocalypse is always more thrilling than the event itself? But Riley and James help carry the picture to the finish line.

    Time Full Review
  • Barbara VanDenburgh

    The zombification of Austen’s material is frequently funny and sometimes clever, but the film stumbles hard when it loses sight of just how ridiculous it is.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Blake Goble

    A comedy of manners and femininity gets bisected by gnarly effects, and the two-tone approach works in its way.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is a pretty silly idea. So why on Earth is this movie, based on the satirical book by Seth Grahame-Smith, not having more fun?

    New York Post Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    Compared with other Jane Austen movies, it isn’t much, but compared with other zombie apocalypse movies, it’s an intelligent, literate effort.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Funny? Sometimes. Scary? Almost never. PP&Z spins merrily and menacingly along for about half an hour. Bad luck that the movie's running time is 107 minutes.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Jesse Hassenger

    The movie feels bloodless, and not just because the gore is muted and computerized to stay within the boundaries of a PG-13 rating.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, at least among Janeites, that we’ll spend long hours scouring every streaming service out there, hungering for a corseted drama to watch. In that respect at least, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is fresh meat, if a tough cut.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Richard Larson

    The juxtaposition of courtship and violence is the film's one true coup, but Pride and Prejudice and Zombies still mistakes weaponry for agency.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Andrew Barker

    Tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt substantial audiences, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is in fact a moderately entertaining film, not deficient in old-fashioned costume drama when it pleases, nor in the power of being clever where it chooses, but awkward and unsatisfying.

    Variety Full Review
  • Russ Fischer

    It is shriekingly loud but never surprising; goofy, but rarely funny.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    The best thing about the movie is that you don’t have to invest a lot of time into seeing Austen’s prose manhandled. You can enjoy the film — well, parts of it — as a middling stock production with flurries of gore to break the monotony.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    The story’s lone joke and its grinding literalness grow dull.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Alan Scherstuhl

    Call it parody, pastiche, remix, whatever — for some thirty minutes of its running time, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies transcends its goof of a premise to become something fresh and full-blooded.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    To put it in Austen terms: They will not have the pleasure of understanding what Steers is trying to do here.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    There's noise and movement, an all-out war, and the usual happy ending, but no real blood, no real life. And not much fun.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    The result is an odd, inconsequential but not entirely charmless misfire: an action-horror-comedy-romance with none of the first two and precious little of the third.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Nick de Semlyen

    The premise promised Regency class and Romero shocks. The results, though, are only intermittently entertaining, and a better adaptation of Austen than a monster mash.

    Empire Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    Steers can compose and capture a shot fine enough, but seems otherwise bored to be here. Each of his scenes collide lazily against the next; transitions are rushed and often ugly, and the director never seems to know what emotions he should be steering his cast toward.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This new horror/romance mashup provides just enough flavor of Jane Austen’s classic to tease without satisfying.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    While the 2009 book played this genre mash-up for dry, sly laughs, writer-director Burr Steers’ film amps up the thrills and gore. And that’s a problem—not necessarily as a narrative choice, but from a technical perspective. Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Riley makes a lousy, hoarse-voiced Darcy. James sets off no sparks with him, suggests no heartbreaking longing. If you want to make a point about women liberated by a zombie invasion into independent-minded martial arts warriors, why do it with one of the greatest romance novels of all time? There’s barely a laugh here, and nothing resembling human emotion.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    James and Riley might make an interesting Elizabeth and Darcy in a traditional Pride and Prejudice, but this version? It’s dead on arrival.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies delivers what its title promises: a little romance and some undead villains, plus a bit of comedy. But this overly busy riff on Austen’s winning formula doesn’t justify all the tinkering.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Dan Callahan

    This movie is so crushing mainly because it was made by obviously smart people who are trying to dumb themselves down, and there’s nothing more excruciating than that.
