Move over, Twilight.

Here comes a breed of nasty bloodsuckers that has little in common with Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart Edward Cullen and Bella Swan...

As we've reported, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter hits theaters this summer. However, sensitive types like Edward Cullen probably aren't wanted in this world.

"The vampires aren't particularly romantic in this one," Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who plays Honest Abe's wife Mary Todd in the flick, told me at the Vanity Fair and Juicy Couture pre-Oscar party. "They're really just pure evil. I don't know if we're romanticizing the vampire as much, but it is exciting."

Yeah, doesn't look like Todd and her costars will be seen zipping around in fancy sports cars or honeymooning in Brazil.

Not that there won't be more adult fare to enjoy. "I did a lot of research on Mary Todd before I went into it because I wanted to at least have an awareness of who she was and what she was like, but I was also aware that this was an R-movie version of her," Winstead said. "I had to kind of let it go and go along for the ride."
