In the movie Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, Abraham Lincoln is portrayed as a vampire hunter. I do not understand why the producers chose him to be a vampire hunter.
Historically he is of great importance in not only American history, but also in global history. So, is it not a bad idea to choose this famous character to be portrayed as vampire hunter?
What is the reason behind choosing Abraham Lincoln? I searched Google and found a novel of the same name. So, is the movie based on the novel and that is why the character is Lincoln? Also I do not think showing him as vampire hunter is such a great idea, because it can create misconceptions with the public, which we have already seen in this site!
