I'm actually getting a little tired of reading news about Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, because it then means I most likely will end up writing news about PaPaZ, and, well, I really could care less. I'm intrigued to see the Natalie Portman starring film that may or may not be directed by David O. Russell, but I have zero interest in ever reading Seth Grahame-Smith's zombification of Jane Austen's literary classic. That being the case, I believe my interest has somehow slid into the negative on the news that PaPaZ will be getting a prequel. (Side note: I'd like to dub this phenomenon negainterest.)

Anyways, Shock Till You Drop has the news on the thrilling matter that is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls, which will be materializing on store shelves this March:

"Steve Hockensmith ("Holmes on the Range") takes over co-author duties, bringing zombies back to Austen's 19th century England. In this installment, we watch Elizabeth Bennet evolve from a naive young teenager into 'a savage slayer of the undead.'"

Yawn. But hey, maybe I'm just being a grouch. Maybe I'm missing out on something in PaPaZ. Maybe a new novel by a guy whose debut novel was about a cowboy pretending to be Sherlock Holmes is something the horror genre needs. Or maybe I was just in a bad mood when I read this news. Whatever the case may be, is there anyone out there who can change my mind? Is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies any good? Are any of these literary classic horrorifications any good?
