Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter Official Trailer #2 - (2012) Movie

I have found I have an affinity for improbably titled moves. Last year, it was Cowboys and Aliens. This year, it's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. In years past, it has been Bubba Hotep with the king of the B's Bruce Campbell, Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, Manos Hands of Fate, Prince of Space, and Plan 9 from Outer Space. Many of these films were shown on Mystery Science Theater 3000 and treated with the respect they so richly deserved. I can only recommend Cowboys and Aliens and Bubba Hotep (and Hotep only to men, women find it about as interesting as the Three Stooges, so not a date night movie guys). For more, see http://www.oddee.com/item_96786.aspx  and similar sites. You'll find there are many improbably titled movies out there and on these sites you can see the posters (a real "treat"). See you at the movies.

UPDATE, November 2012: Recently saw Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter on DVD and I have to say, it's not half bad. It lives up to the title, let's put it that way. Or, you could say, if you liked 2004's Van Helsing, you'll like Abe. Vampire hunting with a silver ax is a nice twist! As for Mary Todd, who knew???
