The film’s plot is similar to the popular novel. Balls, beautiful women and battles look exactly as they should look like in intellectual English society of those times. Complicated relations of dukes and duchesses, love, intrigues, wealth - everything what we love Jane Austen’s novels for – is available in the film. That’s all about classic, which was and will forever remain up-to-date.
But hordes of zombies suddenly burst into careless lives of nobles. A dreadful plague gave birth to creatures that eat human brains for breakfast, dinner and supper. In their free time living deads like to attack and infect people, due to what their populations increase in geometrical progression.
People who were bit by them try to conceal it, hoping for recovery and promising to remain vegetarians for the rest of their lives.
When a young duchess falls in love with a fearless killer of living deads, you begin to empathize with heroes. Women will definitely like the romantic dramas, full of dramatic scenes of love confession on the deathbed.
And lovers of bloody battles and spectacular action will be more interested in solving a vital problem of zombie expansion. After all, the humanity is in danger and there are no hopes that someone except of the main hero can save it.
In the film he is constantly waving his sword, blowing off zombies’ heads and conquering the heart of beautiful lady.
By the way, ladies were not born yesterday as well in the film. These young talents, armed with ball dresses, easily fight back monsters from the world of dead.
Actors selected for the film truly delight the eye. The entourage also corresponds to the spirit of those times and producers don’t demonstrate anything out of the ordinary.
