Pride and Prejudice and Zombies Blog Tour: Favorite Scene

I have been a long time fan of the book Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. My review of it was the very first post ever on Fishmuffins of Doom, so it has a special place on my shelf, on my blog, and in my heart. Now with the new film coming out, I was asked to write about the scene I would like to see in the film.

I'm most looking forward to the epic fight between Lady Catherine de Bourgh and Elizabeth Bennet. As in the original tale, Lady Catherine demands that Elizabeth admit that she isn't engaged to Darcy and that she will never become engaged to Darcy as he has been promised to her daughter since childhood. Elizabeth of course refuses and the fight begins. Lady Catherine is also supported by her cadre of ninjas, so it's not only an unfair fight, but a daunting one for poor Elizabeth. Lady Catherine is being played by Lena Headey who is always amazing, although I expected someone a bit older in the role.

I'll be reviewing the film later on in  Women in Horror Month, so keep an eye out. In the meantime, watch the trailer below, read the book, or check out the film in theaters.
