Back in 2010, I told you about a recently released book by Seth Grahame-Smith, (the same guy who wrote a take on “Pride and Prejudice “– but with zombies.) titled “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Killer”.

Yes, it sounded absurd, but Grahame-Smith managed to inject just enough creative mojo into the piece to make it an enjoyable work of fiction. Naturally, Hollywood noticed as well and decided to greenlight a movie version produced by Tim Burton.

And wouldn’t you know it, it looks really good! Well, if the trailer is anything like the film at least.

“Something hit me inside that said, I just wanted to see that movie,” Burton told the LA Times. “I don’t know why. I grew up on weird perverse movies and it just seemed like one of those kind of movies that just tapped into my subconscious. I remember going to the Cornell Theater in Burbank where they’d do like three movies for 50 cents and that would have been the kind of movie I would have seen there.”

Have a look below.
