    I guess I can't say with certainty that the movie will be this way, but the book this is based on is meant to be absurd. It's designed to be funny. This is the guy who also wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, as well as Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. He's a humorist.

    He didn't write this, Ben Winters did. Seth Grahame-Smith's other book is "Unholy Night". But yes, he's a humorist. His books are fantastic.

    The movie looks ********. That might have been the worst choice of character. Abe Lincoln? Really?

    Some of you folks take films way too seriously. It's just a fun action flick. Anyone see Bubba Hotep? It was absurd but awesome fun.

    Book was well done. Real Story of Abe Lincoln with a vampire story mixed in. It was really good.

    I will watch it online. Very rarely I go to a theater for a movie. The new Batman.....yes I will see in the theater. Other than that, I'm cheap.

    Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire HUnter

    I've never read the book but if it's supposed to be absurd and written by a humorist and the movie is based on the book, this trailer sure doesn't make it look like it's gonna be funny. Tim Burton is the man though so I could see myself renting it sometime.

    Re: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire HUnter

    I don't understand why someone would choose Abe Lincoln as a vampire killer.

    It makes more sense when you realize that the South is actually composed of Vampire clans and are seceding from the union to create their own Vampire nation. (At least that's what I got from the in-theater preview. I haven't read the book yet, but I intend to do so. I plan on buying it for my Kindle app this coming weekend)
