This review will contain spoilers. I mean really – it’s got “Pride & Prejudice” in the title. At this point, if you don’t know the premise… I don’t think I can help you that much. So I am, in this case, not going to worry about spoilers. Overall, (TL;DR) I was incredibly disappointed. The screenplay… Continue reading Review: Pride & Prejudice & Zombie (movie)
