You all saw this coming, right? It was inevitable that we Zombies, the rightful heirs to this pitiful planet peopled with living lunches, would learn how to both write AND travel through time. That’s right, humans, we’ve developed our OWN flux-capacitor thingy. We likes ta call it the Guts-Corpacitor and it runs on 1.21 gigawats of electrified pineal glands (yeah, I mix my movie metaphors like a man from the Catskills). Our first stop in Global goreification: your beloved literature!!!
Arrrrrrggghhh AAAAAHHH!!! Scary right? boo
You wanna talk about a remix? We sent our most wordsmithy brain-fed ghoul, Seth Grahame-Smith, who we cleverly disguised as Jane Austen, back in time to mess with the best. Beware, for thanks to Seth (along with a generous grant from Quirk Books), your classic Pride and Prejudice now contains the proper amount ZOMBIE ATTACKS! And… more ZOMBIE ATTACKS!! Can I get a w00t, my bug-ridded brethren?
Anyhoo, we know you self-hating humans just love us. And since we’re so damn nice when we’re not hungry for your tasty, tasty brains, we decided to give away some copies of this new masterpiece… along with the original television series adaptation, which, without the zombies is full of fail, though Colin Firth would make a fine-looking zombie. But we’ll let you be the judge, as you have the opportunity to win BOTH of them, my necros!

Pride and Prejudice Blu-ray
Pride & Prejudice 2-disc BLU-RAY EDITION – Release date: April 14, 2009
PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has taken its place as one of the greatest television productions of all time. The landmark adaptation from A&E and the BBC captured the hearts of millions by seamlessly translating the wit, romance, and intelligence of Jane Austen’s classic novel to the screen.
With a masterful script, deft direction, and star-making performances from Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle, PRIDE AND PREJUDICE transports viewers to Georgian England, where affairs of the heart are an exquisite game, and marriage the ultimate prize. But Elizabeth Bennet–spirited, independent, and one of five unmarried sisters–is determined to play by her own rules and wed for love, not money or privilege. Will her romantic sparring with the mysterious and arrogant Darcy end in misfortune–or will love’s true nature prevail?
Features brand new bonus materials including a fascinating short film about the technical restoration process.
BONUS FEATURES: Featurettes: “Lasting Impressions,” “An Impromptu Walkabout with Adrian Lukis and Lucy Briers,” “Turning Point,” “Uncovering the Technical Restoration Process”; English Subtitles
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies features the original text of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with all-new scenes of bone-crunching zombie action. As our story opens, a mysterious plague has fallen upon the quiet English village of Meryton-and the dead are returning to life! Feisty heroine Elizabeth Bennet is determined to wipe out the zombie menace, but she’s soon distracted by the arrival of the haughty and arrogant Mr. Darcy. What ensues is a delightful comedy of manners with plenty of civilized sparring between the two young lovers-and even more violent sparring on the blood-soaked battlefield as Elizabeth wages war against hordes of flesh-eating undead. Complete with 20 illustrations in the style of C. E. Brock (the original illustrator of Pride and Prejudice), this insanely funny expanded edition will introduce Jane Austen’s classic novel to new legions of fans.
Jane Austen is the author of Sense and Sensibility, Persuasion, Mansfield Park, and other masterpieces of English literature.
Seth Grahame-Smith is the author of How to Survive a Horror Movie and The Big Book of Porn. He lives in Los Angeles.
