Claustrophobic Corpse Horror.  A corpse of a twenty-something year old woman is discovered half buried in the basement of a home. Taken for autopsy, a father and son examine the mysterious body.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) ★☆☆☆☆

Merely a montage of scenes where the Bennets’ shoot guns, perform karate and swing swords in pretty dresses.  In 19th century England, zombies appear to be ‘the norm’. The Bennet sisters: Elizabeth (Lily James), Lydia (Ellie Bamber), Jane (Bella Heathcote), Kitty (Suki Waterhouse) and Mary (Millie Brady) are not your conventional ladies, in this case.

They first meet in a pet shop, where they are both shopping for birds. Brenner is familiar with Melanie from a recent trial which she was…
