Directed by Timur Bekmambetov and produced by film extraordinaire Tim Burton, this year’s vampire-themed movie is stemmed from Seth Grahame-Smith‘s novel of the same name.
The star character, the 16th President of the United States, is no stranger to us (or to those who have read up on the American history). Known to be one of the greatest presidents the country has ever had, he successfully led his country through its greatest crisis – the American Civil War. But past all that uprising, rumour has it that he has always had a dark secret.
That’s right. We’re talking about the one and only Abraham Lincoln, who had the secret loathing of vampires.
In “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter“, Mr. President himself discovers that vampires are planning to take over the United States and thus, makes it his mission to eliminate them.
The untold story, the dark secret, and the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire is said to be the very thing that shaped a nation. And yes, in the film, Abraham Lincoln will be positioned as history’s greatest hunter of the undead:
