Once bitten, twice shy

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is out on DVD now, and my mom has been determined to see it, for reasons unfathomable to me. The day before yesterday she went to the local rental place, and every copy was checked out. Every single one.

She went back again yesterday, and still had no luck.

On her way home from work today she tried for the third time, and there was one copy available. She snagged it and carried it around while looking over the other new releases, and while she was in the store she overheard two different people ask the clerk if there were any extra copies of AL:VH in the back.

Maybe it’ll be one of those movies that die an ignominious death in theaters only to enjoy cult status in the home video market.

By the way, Mom didn’t like it.

  1. Bummer is not enthralled with theater visits, so hungering for a Lincoln film my wife and I endured it on pay per view. Abraham as a super hero was definitely a twist, kind of cool. Let’s just say it was better than a “sharp stick in the eye”. Spielberg’s Lincoln is a must see and am sure it will not disappoint.

  2. The most surprising part of this review is that your mom actually found a video rental store open for business. How quaint!
