The chosen movie was the flick that led to the popular tv series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The movie : Buffy the Vampire Slayer Set in modern-day modern for Southern California, Buffy Kristy Swanson is a seemingly shallow teenage cheerleader whose biggest worry is whether an outfit is currently in style.

Fill their pages with vampires, zombies, mummies or androids, it does them no harm. Which probably explains why there has been an explosion of literary mash-ups in the last twelve months as authors and publishers ride the wave. When applied to a literary classic the least that is required is an appreciation of the language of the original, but perhaps more important is a sensitivity to the interplay of aesthetic, moral, historical and cultural influences which gave birth to the original novel.

So much for the theory. Mostly the mash-up takes the original plot and setting and simply slots in something supernatural or unexpected. Her cruel aunt is a vampire and really only kept from eating the child through a preference for more aristocratic blood.

Sent away to Lowood boarding school Jane discovers that her headmaster is reanimating dead students to be trained for domestic service, and driven by her Slayre instincts and heartfelt compassion Jane beheads her zombified friends, liberating their souls and discovering her true vocation.

With time she takes a job as a governess at a country estate where love blossoms with her employer, the brooding Edward Rochester, but a terrible secret locked away in his heart and the attic is revealed on their wedding day: he is already married.

To a werewolf. Jane runs away to pursue her destiny, but looking to the day when she can return and liberate Edward from the terrible burden of a lycanthropic wife.

April 13, Jane Slayre takes slyre approach of books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and takes a classic piece of literature and adds a supernatural twist to it.
