Last summer’s box-office disappointment Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits DVD and Blu-ray today — just in time for the inevitable “Where’s the vampires?” jokes w/r/t the upcoming Spielberg Lincoln biopic (and seriously, you guys, just keep those coming). So we should probably take a moment to pause and reflect on the fact that they actually went and made Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, a film whose mere concept is so utterly insane that, yes, of course it’s a real thing.
