Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter

Does anyone else think this looks really fucking awesome?

Read the book and it is hilarious.

The same author wrote Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Exactly like the original P and P except there is a zombie infestation and the sisters are trained zombie fighters. :smiley:

I saw an ad for this at the movie theatre and I thought it was a joke, but I hoped that it wasn’t.

It was a farking book? O_o

I will definately go see this when it comes out. Looks like a really random story that actually kinda works.

It’s funny as a book but not sure how that will transfer into a good movie. Will have to wait and see.

Hrm… looks more action-orientated from the trailer. Was the book titled the same?

Both the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and the Lincoln one are really good well P and P was already really good but the addition of zombies and ninjas made it fun.

There is also Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters too that I keep meaning to look for.

Well he did chop down that cherry tree on top of San Juan Hill with the half written Declaration of Independence in his satchel…

This thread needed a theme picture.

Tyler Durden: Okay, any historic figure.
Jack: I’d fight Gandhi.
Tyler Durden: Good answer.
Jack: How about you?
Tyler Durden: Lincoln.
Jack: Lincoln?
Tyler Durden: Big guy, big reach. Skinny guys fight 'til they’re burger.

I am listening to P and P and Zombies. It needs more zombies. It definitely helps the story.

I would think Oscar Wilde’s work in a literary smash up could be great if there was an author who could keep up.

Or George Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion: Victorian London is overrun by a zombie plague. Professor Higgins and Colonel Pickering take a zombified flower girl and attempt to pass her off as a lady.

Make that a zombified trash man and you have got a book.

Transexual zombies are the new literary “black”.

The garbage man is the flower girl’s father. He can wander in. Have to keep the girl otherwise the parts where a zombie has elocution lessons has to go.
