Prepare to take an axe to the face with the new trailer for Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

59 second read

Just why exactly is everybody so obsessed with Abraham Lincoln? He may have been the great emancipator, but in fiction, he’s been everything from a cyborg fighting tyrannical robots to the best friend of a retarded child.

But the latest piece of media to feature the 16th President of the United States has really thrown the stove-pipe hat into the ring, as Abe Lincoln prepares to use his unreal wood-chopping strength to axe vampires in the face.

It’s an idea that is so ridiculous, that it’s genius, and the official trailer does nothing to divert me from that train of thought. See for yourself. 

Based on the Seth Grahame-Smith novel and featuring Benjamin Walker in the title role, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is directed by Wanted’s Timur Bekmambetov.

A film set in a turbulent and bloody time featuring actual vampires and axe kung-fu? Shut up and take my money already!

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
