Our 16th President Hated Vampires. Who Knew?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 8:06 PM

Yesterday we featured a trailer from the forthcoming Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls, the sequel to the book that spawned a cottage industry of fusing classic literature with classic horror-film creatures.

Now, Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of the first Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, is out with a new book this month, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Still can’t figure out what happens in the book? That’s why we now have live-action literature trailers (see above).

If you’re thinking that watching our 16th president stake some Antebellum undead might make a decent movie, Tim Burton has already signed on as a producer.

In the meantime, we’re hard at work on our own literary mashup manuscript, tentatively titled Moby-William Howard Taft.
