"Emma and the Vampires" Jane Austen and Wayne Josephson ~ Just Another Tall Tale

"What better place than pale England to hide a secret society of gentlemen vampires?"


In this hilarious retelling of Jane Austen’s "Emma," screenwriter Wayne Josephson casts Mr. Knightley as one of the most handsome and noble of the gentlemen village vampires. Blithely unaware of their presence, Emma, who imagines she has a special gift for matchmaking, attempts to arrange the affairs of her social circle with delightfully disastrous results. But when her dear friend Harriet Smith declares her love for Mr. Knightley, Emma realizes she’s the one who wants to stay up all night with him. Fortunately, Mr. Knightley has been hiding a secret deep within his unbeating heart-his (literal) undying love for her… A brilliant mash-up of Jane Austen and the undead.

Well, what can we do but rush to get this freebie from Amazon this weekend?  I had to have it for my crazier-than-a-bedbug collection of books that crush and carry on about famous vampires, ghouls, zombies and such taking off where our beloved classical authors feared to tread.

Go there if you dare.  We need something to occupy our minds off-hours after Halloween has happened and we've collapsed in our favorite chairs.




That's so neat MOm! I love that you found this. Happy Halloween! :)


I've read another positive review of this one recently. I love some mash-ups and am not so fond of others, but this one sounds like it might be fun!
