2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing, 23 May 2009
I was sold on this book by the title alone; having had to read Pride & Prejudice at school and being a fan of the zombie genre it was enough for me to buy it.

Sadly, it seems after coming up with a superb idea, there was no substance or inspiration to go with it. The zombie invasion is totally secondary to the traditional plot line, and as you read it, the zombies are completely forgotten and pose no real threat or interest throughout, except for off-hand references to how many undead someone has slain.

Once you have gotten over the main - and only - joke, there is little else to sustain interest in this one trick pony.

5.0 out of 5 stars Carpenters best, 13 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is my favourite John Carpenter film, possibly equalled by 'The Thing'.

Sam Neill is brilliant as a cynical insurance claims investigator, showing his gradual descent into madness as the normal world becomes consumed by the dark imagination of a highly popular horror author.

Inspiration for this film comes from the world of HP Lovecraft, and is in my opinion the most faithful adaptation of his work I have seen; it gives you that same unsettled feeling you get from reading Lovecraft's work.

This film poses interesting questions about the nature of reality, and is well worth a watch if you are after a horror with a bit more intelligence to it than your average slasher.
