'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' sounds like more like a Troma type video, but it's all major studio based on a book that Tim Burton loved enough to produce.

Tim Burton is that rare filmmaker who can get films made that the studios would immediately turn down anybody else thinking them insane. When I read 'Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter' after it came out, I actually thought it could be a cool SyFy kinda show, but Burton saw it way bigger and then 3D. I would have thought it might be more in line as as Astron-6 type film after seeing their cult horror flick 'Father's Day', and it's great that some cool bizarre off the beaten track films can still get greenlit.

Benjamin Walker, who stars as honest Abe described the film. “It’s told through the structure of Lincoln’s actual life. You not only see these huge fight scenes and great moments of drama, but you get sort of the greatest hits of Lincoln’s life, from the mysterious death of his mother through the Gettysburg address,” says Walker. “You get a portrait of this man, as well as a thriller.”

You can definitely see why Abe wanted to abolish slavery as the slaves here are also owned by vampires. It'll be fun to see how they handle this area.

The scene that EW mentions in their talk with Walker reminds me a little of Guillermo del Toro's book 'The Strain Trilogy'...which definitely could be made into a sweet film series.

Lincoln has journeyed to Louisiana to rescue a friend — a freed black man named William Johnson (The Hurt Locker‘s Anthony Mackie), who has been captured by a cabal of Southern vampires.

Vampires like the idea of slavery because, for them, it turns plantations into livestock farms. If certain groups of human beings are considered property, then the Confederacy is like an all-you-can-eat buffet for bloodsuckers looking to feed without consequence.

While some may claim that eating your staff might not be too smart, but vamps know they can just get more...until ole Abe decides to make things more difficult for them. It's like a great precursor of history for 'Buffy, the Vampire Slayer'!
