Holy cigarette filter-chomping hell. FDR: American Badass! is attempting to win every award for low budget insanity ever made. It’s an obvious money grab in response to Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer, but whereas that gem sought to preserve a bit of history, FDR: AB! takes history, injects it with polio, glues 8 pounds of fur to it and lights it on fire.
There is nothing about this trailer that doesn’t live up to the Badass pedigree. It all screams “Success!” Explosions, Werewolf Hitler, Barry Bostwick taking it all exactly as seriously as it needs to be taken. Of course, it was all directed by Garrett Brawith, the guy who played Jeffrey Dahmer in Diary of a Serial Killer. Plus, Kevin Sorbo playing Abraham Lincoln. Figure that one out.
Werewolf Nazis, people. It’s people in werewolf costumes in Nazi uniforms. Enjoy!
Fuck. Polio. 2012.
If only he’d had a mic to drop after that.
