I may have to add this to my list. The film adaptation of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter comes out in June and I’m intrigued for a few reasons:
1) The book was written by a fellow Emerson College alum, Seth Grahame-Smith. He also wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. We may not have a football team, but we do have a writer who turns a beloved Jane Austen novel into a Regency Era Walking Dead…and then turns the 16th President of the United States into a 19th century Buffy. Go Lions!
2) It’s Abe Lincoln killing vampires.
3) I hate nearly all vampire movies. I will never write about Twilight being adapted into a film on this blog because I would never call what Stephenie Myers does “writing,” or her final product a “novel.” With Abraham Lincoln, I feel I’ll get some cathartic thrill out of watching vampires get destroyed.
4) It’s ABE LINCOLN KILLING VAMPIRES.
