I don’t know about this one, FRIGHT readers… I remember chuckling at the mere ridiculous concept back when I first heard this book title. But now, a short few years later and we’ve already got the movie adaptation of ABRAHAM LINCOLN VAMPIRE HUNTER. And if the first few trailers didn’t entice you, perhaps this new red-band trailer will. Looks like we can at least expect some vicious vampires and some bloody beheadings… but will it be good?
Only time will tell. Tim Burton produces while WANTED director Timur Bekmambetov helms the picture. It stars Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell and Dominic Cooper and opens June 22nd.
Synopsis: “Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter explores the secret life of our greatest president, and the untold history that shaped our nation. As a young boy, Abraham Lincoln witnesses the shocking death of his mother, leading him on a path to an ongoing war – and ultimately to the presidency – he chronicles in a hidden diary. The journal reveals the incredible story of a clandestine warrior who never stopped fighting for the country he led and the people he loved.”
