“Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” – February 5

In this genre-bending reanimation of a classic Jane Austen novel written in 1813, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” seamlessly combines the majesty of early 19th century English society with the blood-curdling action of horror and science fiction. Austen’s main characters, plot points, and love interests remain the same, despite the added nuisance of the undead. Lily James (“Cinderella”) plays protagonist Elizabeth Bennet, who wields daggers while wearing dresses, replaces garters with zombie guts, and leads her sisters through battle without once surrendering her grace and propriety. Based on the novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, the movie “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” is directed by Burr Steers. – A. Talarico
