Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is 2012 supernatural thriller film based on a 2010 novel Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith. This "what if" fictional supernatural horror film adaptation of the mashup novel gained mixed reviews back on 2010. The film adaptation of Seth Grahame-Smith which is slated for a June 2012 theatrical release plays with the idea that the historical American icon and 16th President of the United States was a vampire hunter. Let's take a look at this seemingly crazy idea of a book adapted to a 2012 film here.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Film Trailer Review
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter has a pretty interesting yet crazy theme. Hopefully Americans won't take this film too seriously in a sense that they would find it insulting to see the country's greatest historical icon behind the abolition of slave trade and a symbol of equality as a vampire hunter.
I personally think this is fresh. I like "what-if" scenarios done right. Reading the summary of the novel which already spoiled the film for me, all I can say is that amidst the film's seemingly absurd and preposterous concept, the film hopefully would be as entertaining as the novel it is based from. I am optimistic that this film will be a good one and will be putting this under my watch-list this 2012.
