In honor of the Blu-ray and DVD release of the action-fantasy-horror film ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,’ Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has created virtual apps that will put viewers into the film. Users can visit the websites for each app, including ‘Abe the Photobomb,’ ‘Axe Yourself‘ and ‘Motion Comic (Chapter 4).’
Capitalizing on the popularity of photo bombing, ‘Abe the Photobomb’ allows users to upload an image of themselves and digitally insert Abe, or any one of he vampires, into the picture. The user can also add numerous period filters, giving their picture a daguerreotype look. The finished image can then be uploaded to such social networks as Facebook and Twitter.
‘Axe Yourself’ allows users to inert themselves into one of the most exciting scenes of ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,’ as they become the hunted. After uploading their photo and vampire-izing themselves, including adding fangs and creepy eyes, an axe-wielding Abe attacks the newest member of the undead, eventually triumphing in a moment of gore.
The last app, ”Motion Comic (Chapter 4),’ continues the set of motion comics released by the theatrical version of the film. ‘Chapter 4’ takes the series to the next level with all-new storyboards and imagery.
