Our nation's 16th president is known for a lot of great things - but fighting vampires is not one of them. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has a different story to tell about one of America's greatest presidents. Based on the novel of the same name by Seth Grahame-Smith, the film depicts Lincoln as a tough-as-nails warrior battling a legion of vampires.
The unique premise is likely to bring viewers into the theater, but can this story hold up as a movie? Earlier this year, Grahame-Smith wrote the screenplay for the disappointing Dark Shadows-- read our review here-- but this story has a much better premise going for it. And who isn't excited to watch our President Lincoln engaging in hand-to-hand combat with vampires? I know I am stoked for this one.
