Just picked up some interesting news for us out in the terror hottie circuit, folks–we’ve been following Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for some time now, and a very nifty little bit has emerged. A release date, that seems pretty firm, has emerged and it’s sooner than you might think.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (featuring Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Robin McLeavy as just two of the terror hotties–Jaqueline Fleming is also said to make an appearance as, of all things, Harriet Tubman) follows the President of the same name. While in our history, his mother was said to have died of “milk sickness”, in this one, she was actually turned into a vampire. And now, the old railsplitter is turning rails into stakes to go hunt up the bloodsuckers who took his mom.
It’s hard not to be excited about this one, because it’s one of the few historical dramas out there that also qualify as a horror film. It’s like a literary version of Blade, and who couldn’t be happy about that? This one will hit theaters June 22, so prepare to get a good old fashioned shot of horror in your summertime fun.
