Watch the awesome trailer for Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Lincoln in hand-to-hand combat with a vampire assassin? That's not quite how I remember it from the history books. But if we're to believe Seth Grahame-Smith's historical horror novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, that's exactly how it all went down.

As we told you last year, Grahame-Smith was paid a rumored $575,000 for the two-book deal that followed his smash hit Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Whatever he got paid, we're just glad that some of the money made it into this awesome trailer.
