ĎAbraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunterí [VIDEO]
Daily Caller ^ | February 15, 2012 | Taylor Bigler

What if our 16th president’s plight was not to abolish slavery, but to hunt down the vampires who killed his mother and grandfather? And what if he leads troops into battle wielding an axe, better to sever the heads of undead vampires with?

That is the premise of this summer’s “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” (Yes, really.)

Oh yeah!!! Although my kids thought the actor playing Lincoln did not look much like the real one.

I saw the trailer and it was kinda cool to be honest.

I would love to have been in the meeting when the writer tried to sell this script to the studio. “It got Abraham Lincoln, but....now here's the twist...he's a axe wielding vampire hunter. Think Civil War history meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

The trailer reminded me of the movie “Van Helsing”. Wonder of they will have Kate Beckinsdale as Mrs. Lincoln?

The movie is based on a book by the same title from the same author as the Pride and Prejudice meets Zombies book. So nothing to sell the studio since the book itself was very successful.

To be fair the sales of the book really made that argument for them. It really was a very interesting book with surprising historical facts thrown in to add credence to the story.

How about Katy Perry as Mrs. Lincoln? or Adele, maybe?

Very cool...

I hope this does so well that they do Pride and Prejudice and Zombies next. :-)

The books are a decent read. High entertainment value.

My friend has his brother in the trailer.

He is the young man seated all the way to the right in the platform scene(Gettysburg address?) after the Washington Monument cut.

Someone needed to do some editing of the Washington Monument shot because one can see the Arlington high rises in the background.

VAMPIRES WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR STARTING THE BLOODY CIVIL WAR?

I wonder if Vampires will be responsible for the collapse of our economy as well...

Thanks! I’ve been using variations on the theme since the unfettered and Halcyon days of dial-up BBS. :-)

We need a federal program to supply living humans as food to the undead be it brains for zombies or blood for vampires....

Gotta court the Vampire and Zombie vote.

I’m torn.

It looks like a fun campy movie that isn’t the same old same old...but at the same time I wonder if I should just wait for the remake in 4D 5 years from now.

She just played the heroine in the “Thing” prequel. I think she was also in one of those awful “Final Destination” movies, III maybe?

Haven’t we had enough movies about vampires, werewolves and zombies lately? I remember when this book came out a few years back. It was a huge seller and I just knew at some point they might make a movie out of it. Anything with vampires is movie worthy right now. Yeessshhh. Guess it’s just not my cup of tea.

“what if he leads troops into battle wielding an axe, better to sever the heads of undead vampires with?”

Then I predict he won’t do as well as bringing rifled muskets and artillery. Though I guess an axe is more appropriate for the Old Rail Splitter.

“I would love to have been in the meeting when the writer tried to sell this script to the studio”

That would be as ho-hum as pitching a romantic comedy or movie set in the Old West. Dumbing down past literary and historical figures so they can fight the undead is a thing now, and will be until studios and publishers stumble upon the next Next Big Thing.

I’ll never understand why they show up to those red carpets caked in makeup when they must realize the high-def cameras will make them look insane. Though the bottom half of the picture is very interesting.
