Zombies, m'lord!


Are we ready for Pride and Prejudice: The Zombie Apocalypse? It's been done every other way imaginable at this point. Part of the tension will no doubt come from trying to spot the living from the dead during the dance scenes.

Then there's this one, a zombies vs. special ops scenario. Could be cool if the walking dead are stealthily made symbolic of the mindless, unrelenting enemy we face over there. More likely, it'll get the standard-issue "what have we done?!" treatment.

Approached with smarts and restraint, both of these could be really good in very different ways. Realistically, expect two brainless gore fests showing the filmmakers as the real zombies.
