Let’s Talk About “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”
by Jessica Barton on June 18, 2012
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is coming out in theaters Friday and I knew I’d already read the book. After looking it up, I realized that this was my first ever review for Nerdist.com! HOLY CRAP! It doesn’t seem like it’s been over two years since I started having amazing conversations with you awesome nerds about your literary opinions and dishing out mine.
It’s been so much fun here! Truly, I can’t believe my luck and I want to keep the good times rolling by asking what YOU think about this. There have been a lot of opinions regarding the zombiefication of the classics since the trend first started and I have to say, my opinion has changed a lot since that article two years ago. Don’t get me wrong — I think the movie looks really interesting and I really, REALLY enjoyed the book, but the whole trend got a little out of hand for my tastes. But that happens with everything, eventually, doesn’t it?
I’m interested to hear what you guys think. Are you into the movie? Are we excited to see it? My co-hosts and I discussed it a bit on a forthcoming episode of the podcast No Math Allowed!; That, in case you haven’t been paying attention, is my podcast about books! (Sorta…) We agreed: We hope this doesn’t kick-start the trend back into high gear and bastardize ALL of the classics and/or important historical figures in an attempt to make a blockbuster. I kinda hope they stick to board games for that.
