Five movies to see after Pride & Prejudice & Zombies

Five movies to see after Pride & Prejudice & Zombies – P&P&Z is coming out quite soon and a feature pulling together recommendations of similar adaptions blur the lines between fantasy, horror and historical fiction

Van Helsing

This Hugh Jackman-led horror-action flick blends together the stories of horror-fiction’s greatest monsters from Dracula to Frankenstein’s monster. It’s a little more outright-horror (and cheesier) than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but if you’re looking for another supernatural period piece, Van Helsing will do.

Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Though marginally more-historically accurate than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, this action-thriller offers up a very similar formula of period piece and monster slaying hybrid. Set in a different time and place to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is telling a very different joke but it’s very much a joke that fans of the former film will appreciate.


Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters

In terms of trashy remixes of classic literature and modern blockbusters, it doesn’t get much more trashy than Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters. Starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton in the titular roles, it’s great next stop after you’re done with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.

Sleepy Hollow

The one genuine classic in this list, the 1999 Tim Burton-directed Sleepy Hollow is pretty much as good as it gets when it comes to supernatural-period pieces. Starring Johnny Depp and Christina Ricci, it won an Academy Award for Best Art Direction and is easy to recommend.


Crimson Peak

One of last year’s most flawed but fascinating films, Crimson Peak is Guilmero Del Toro‘s love-letter to Gothic romance. Both visually and tonally stunning, it’s a more-self-serious film than Pride and Prejudice and Zombies but a natural follow-up that won’t leave fans of the genre disappointed.
