We’re two days away from the release of one of the most talked about movies of the summer, if not the year – Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. A lot of people are questioning the existence of this movie, as the whole “Hey let’s take a historical figure and create an insane new reality for him” plot device is still fresh and, well, strange. Yes, at face value, this is a movie that people can hate before ever giving it a shot, and I’m certainly one to understand snap judgments.

But I’ll give you three reasons why Abe Lincoln deserves your consideration:

1) I’ve read the book and I liked it. I don’t read books that aren’t published by Penthouse that often, so this is a very strong endorsement.
B) Timur Bekmambetov is a very underrated director. Despite James McAvoy’s facial derpery and a plot about a psychic loom, I rather enjoyed Wanted.
III) Vampire Hunter is hardly the first film of its kind.

Thanks to my incredibly secretive Hott Goss sources – the very same that have provided us with such great insight into the development of White House Down – I’ve been introduced to 10 other presidential movie monster mash-ups that unfortunately never saw the light of day. After the jump, I have these never-before-seen posters, with taglines written by my Warming Glow hombre Josh, for potential cinematic masterpieces that were shot down by an ignorant and unfair Hollywood bureaucracy before they had a chance to make billions.
