ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER 3D Now on DVD {@AbeTheHunter #Movie #Review}


Needless to say that Ascending Butterfly is counting down to Halloween already as Horror is my favorite movie genre of all time! (Any fellow Horror and Vampire Movie Genre Lovers out there that would get into trouble for slipping their copy of Fangoria Magazine in their school books?) Yesterday's Movie Review was for an all ages Family Friendly title, (Disney Secret of the Wings Movie Review, if you missed it, you could check out HERE) but today's title is most definitely NOT for the kiddos!

I didn't get the chance to see this one in the theatres because of my insane travel schedule and now that I got to see it on video I truly regret not catching this one on the 'big screen'.

While I'm a huge fan of the genre, I'm the first to admit that most horror movies are a bit plot 'light' and usually disappointing in the end, but I can honestly tell you this one is NONE of those! I greatly enjoyed this movie! For the life of me I could not conceive how Vampires and Abraham Lincoln would come together, but they really did do it somehow!

Plot Summary

English: The election season is about to get a whole lot bloodier as historical legend throws his hat into the ring in ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, arriving on Blu-ray™3D, Blu-ray™ and DVD October 23 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. A citizen by day and a hunter by night, this action-packed film with cutting-edge visual effects shows the Lincoln you know – with one additional quality of which you were unaware... until now.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER explores the secret life of Abraham Lincoln before he became President, and the untold story that shaped our nation. Visionary filmmakers Tim Burton (Dark Shadows) and Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) bring a fresh and visceral voice to the bloodthirsty lore of the vampire, imagining Lincoln as history's greatest hunter of the undead.

Based on the New York Times Best Seller novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER stars Benjamin Walker (Flags of Our Fathers), Dominic Cooper (Captain American: The Frist Avenger), Anthony Mackie (The Adjustment Bureau), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) and Rufus Sewell (The Tourist). The Blu-ray™ 3D and Blu-ray™ are loaded with killer content and hard action, including an exclusive never-before-scene animated graphic novel prequel about the origins of vampires in the U.S.A.

My Take:

I had the same reaction most people had when they heard about this title, 'yeah right'. But I can tell you that as Far Fetched as it may seem, it really does come together, you get invested in the characters, it's well-paced, isn't just solely relying on special effects, and does not let you down! This one is definitely a winner for your Halloween Weekend viewing and for your Horror/Vamp Movie Collection!

If you already saw this one, what did YOU think YAY or NAY? Did you catch them at Comic Con This Year?

I am on my way to #BlogHer12 so why are my thoughts on the @NicheMommy Conference?

Witchcraft, Voodoo Legends, and Vampire Folklore - OH MY!

This week the BlogHer Conference is coming back to my city, New York City! And I'm live blogging this year FOR BlogHer which I'm totally excited about. So why is my mind already on the Niche Mommy Conference?

I guess since I already live in New York City, and I'm not taking a plane to get there, I'm not getting that 'travel rush' I normally get before a conference, so my mind is drifting and wandering towards thoughts of new sites and sounds. A city I have never visited. A city with Vampire Lore (Hello, life long Horror and Vampire Movie lover here!), a city with a rich Jazz musical history and great restaurants, New Orleans!

I have been researching this city for years now, and according to the Haunted New Orleans Tours website, "New Orleans, (is) America's Most Haunted City" - It seems to me it's part haunted and part enchanted and that is a strong part of the draw for me. I don't know why none of my travels to date have yet to take me there, but I'm thinking the Niche Mommy Conference sounds like a perfect excuse, I mean ahem, a 2012 'business' trip! Yeah, that's the ticket! While I know most folks immediately think about Mardi Gras madness, I don't want to try push my way down crowded streets, I want to take leisurely strolls and get great pictures of local architecture, meet tons of locals and hit the restaurants on my wish/research list. Yes I have actually been compiling a list of must try restaurants, I'm such a hopeless foodie!

You know how I feel about Vision Boards, and how they help you put the power of attraction in action! I have been compiling info on New Orleans for awhile now, and here is an advertisement that I clipped from a  magazine that highlights some of the things I want to do while in NOLA!

My 'Big Easy' Vision Board:

Press on each picture to see them as a full page and then backspace and come back here to see the next one!

I was robbed of quite a bit of travel time in the last year (due to a medical nightmare I certainly didn't see coming), and I plan to make up for it! While there are all the obvious reasons of why I love conferences (connecting with online friends from across the miles in the real world, learning how to make my business grow stronger by blogging smarter not harder, meeting great brands and making new friends), I also love travel and I love exploring new cities. I'm totally excited that Niche Mommy will be held in New Orleans this year, and I totally hope to make it out there!

For all those coming in this week for BlogHer, please be sure to visit my post that outlines the top 10 family fun New York City sites and attractions, if you missed it, you can click HERE.
