Abraham Lincoln, Badass

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.

    Not surprisingly, I’m looking forward to the book and movie. Its about time the namesake of our High School’s real story was told 🙂
