Book Trailer: Sense and Sensibility and Seamonsters

Don’t you just love the crappy special effects?

In the spirit of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, there also is an adaptation for an other work of Jane Austen, the classic Sense and Sensibility. I love these adaptations (calling them parodies seems a little harsh) and I hope S&S&S will be awesome! It’s been on my to be read pile for a while since I’ve made a promise to myself that I would read Jane Austen’s original work first. Looking forward to the angry octopus feeding on prettily clothed Englishmen though!


From the publisher of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies comes a new tale of romance, heartbreak, and tentacled mayhem. Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopodes, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities.

As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels?

This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austen’s biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. It’s survival of the fittest—and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love!
