It is a truth universally acknowledged that a zombie in possession of brains must be in want of more


I have stolen my post title from bioephemera* because, frankly, she has composed the best post title I can recall reading. Check out her review of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Hints of Buffy the Vampire-Slayer meets Regency drama... with zombies.

In case this merely whets your P&P remix appetite, you can simply wait for Pride and Predator. "Elton John's Rocket Pictures is developing a new spin on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, this time featuring a nefarious seven-foot extraterrestrial with hideous mandibles and a penchant for human blood." [source: The Gaurdian]. Or if the whole spoof/remix of classics of English literature has captured your imagination, or you happen to have a McAvoy fetish (*cough!* Faunalia, Reynardin), there is always, Gnomeo and Juliet.
