Four Score and one hundred and seventy million dollars ago, our studio moguls brought forth on this pop culture a new movie, conceived in literature, and dedicated to the preposterousness that Abe Lincoln be re-created to kill.
Kill vampires, that is. And so we now have ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER - the most unabashedly ridonkulous high concept movie to venture down the Hollywood pike in a while. Although it's based upon the faux-historical lark of a book by Seth Grahame-Smith ("Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" author, also credited with the film's screenplay), in which America's sixteenth president is revealed to have been a secret battler of bloodsuckers (his origin contorted in kind), ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER takes it's place among other punch line-titled works that tell you all you need to know about the movie with a name, a job, and a colon: PAUL BLART: MALL COP or DEUCE BIGALOW: MALE GIGOLO or LARRY THE CABLE GUY: HEALTH INSPECTOR.
