I was planning to blog about Barry Hannah, one of the great short story masters, but came across this book trailer instead. Why is the trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter so incredible? Could it be the black-and-white footage with spot color of red? The bad acting, the straight-faced voiceover, the over-the-top facial expressions?
The author, Seth Grahame-Smith, also wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. A surprisingly entertaining premise combining stuffy literariness with oddball humor. Makes me want to revisit the civil war, and witness ol’ Abe in vampire slaying action.
