Plot: In his little-known secret life, our 16th President was an immensely talented killer of vampires, and once saved the country from an army of the undead.
Spin: Seth Grahame-Smith, the father of so-called mashup novel — in which a work of fiction is fused with genre elements — wrote this big-screen adaption of his 2009 book, whose rights were quickly snapped up by Tim Burton and Hunter director Timur Bekmambetov. (Burton is one of the film’s co-producers, and Grahame-Smith wrote the script for Burton’s Dark Shadows.)
