My buddy Aaron is a bartender for a certain movie theater here in Michigan, and on occasion, the theater will have advanced screenings for movies the Wednesday night prior to the film’s release. Well early this morning I got a few texts from my good friend about his thoughts on President Lincoln’s Vampire Slaying skills.
Aaron Stallings: Kronner, I’m texting you at 2am with no regard if you’re sleep or not to tell you that I want to have sex with this movie. It was f***ing sweet! Reminds me of zombieland. – 1:58 AM
Aaron Stallings: Fast pace, kinda crazy, great effects, creepy characters, smooth villains… oh, and Abe Lincoln freeing my people. – 2:01 AM
Aaron Stallings: Oh, and 1 boob, but there’s was a little blood on it soooo… If that’s you’re kinda thing… – 2:02 AM
He also informed me that he viewed the film with projection team, who are, as he put it, “Movie buffs. Like you”, and that they too seemed to share his excitement for the feature.
I don’t know about you, but based on that review…I’m in.

President Lincoln’s mother was killed by a supernatural creature, which fuels his passion to crush vampires and their slave-owning helpers.

Now we have some fantastic new images from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, courtesy of The Gamma Squad. Vampires, beards and lots of axes… sum’s these images up nicely.
This trailer actually makes me want to watch this film, because it might be really good… kind of. Maybe. Previous trailers just made me want to watch the film to have a laugh (I probably still will), but come on, it’s a film were Abraham Lincoln kills vampires; It’s going to be hysterical! Right?
Check out the newest trailer below, you won’t be disappointed:
“It’s time vampires had a nation of our own.” Isn’t Transylvania enough for you vampires? Greedy vampire…
The new trailer though certainly is starting to paint a better picture for this film in my mind, but I still have some concerns, mainly towards the film’s director Timur Bekmambetov. His track record isn’t great on films where he produces, writes and directs – 9, Apollo 18 and The Darkest Hour. And then add in that Tim Burton’s last couple of ventures haven’t given me much hope either, I have right to be skeptical.
On a more positive note, both of these have made good films in the past, so here’s hoping we get the best out of them.
Honest Abe looks ready to go though…
The crazy success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies has created the market for a slew of similarly themed books starring historical or fictional characters versus the Occult. The first of these to hit the big screen will be Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, ahead of the proto-generator Pride and Prejudice and Zombies which isn’t scheduled to come out until 2013. Well, the trailer is out and the first thing that’s apparent is that AL:VH is swinging for the fences.
