The zombies act as a background danger to provide plot propulsion, never overriding the personal drama. Story progression is stable until after the halfway point where things tilt in total favor of the Jane Austen sensibilities. It's a shift that deflates the mood and sucks out what little fun the movie was having with itself up to that point. The humor vanishes …
