Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Seth Grahame-Smith

Day 14 - loved the book, hated the movie...

 

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter - Seth Grahame-Smith 

 

I'm a big fan of this book.  It had a serious, historical tone to it, despite the fact that it's filled with vampires, and that made my nerdy little history-loving heart very happy.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked the book, so I eagerly anticipated the movie version, only to be sorely disappointed.  It was a cheesy, terrible mess of computer-generated effects and atrocious acting.  I shouldn't be surprised, since it is a vampire movie being made in the Twilight Age, but they have been done well in the past (Interview with a Vampire), so I expected better.  I choose to forget that I ever saw it.
