Action/Horror/Comedy: In 19th century England where London is a walled, safe haven from zombies, a number of highly trained sisters must not only contend with the undead, but also the callings of their aristocratic society, including the prospects of marriage and finding the right man.
It's 19th century England and most of the country has been overrun by zombies hungry for human brains. Due to a one-hundred foot guarded wall and huge moat, London has been a safe haven from the undead, but those brain hungry monsters have been making inroads. Accordingly, the young adult daughters of Mr. Bennet (CHARLES DANCE) -- Elizabeth (LILY JAMES), Jane (BELLA HEATHCOTE), Kitty (SUKI WATERHOUSE), Lydia (ELLIE BAMBER) and Mary (MILLIE BRADY) -- have not only been taught the manners of high society, but also that of the deadly martial arts in order to defend themselves. While Elizabeth is proficient in the latter, she has no intention of being paired off by her mother with some man simply for the sake of being married, although she doesn't mind that Jane is currently being courted by Charles Bingley (DOUGLAS BOOTH).

That man's friend, William Darcy (SAM RILEY), is also more interested in killing zombies than finding a wife, but initially antagonistic turned flings of romantic sparks fly between him and Elizabeth. Things become more complicated when Lt. George Wickham (JACK HUSTON) -- who grew up with and then apart from Darcy -- shows up. He has eyes for Elizabeth, as does her cousin, Parson Collins (MATT SMITH), but Wickham is also hoping to convince regal warrior Lady Catherine (LENA HEADEY) that a new tactic might be in order for dealing with the zombies. As the attacks by the undead increase, it's unclear who Elizabeth will fall for, if anyone, and whether anyone will survive the zombie apocalypse.

Teens might be interested, especially if the mash-up of Jane Austen and zombies sounds enticing.
For zombie violence and action, and brief suggestive material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
