If you’d like to watch history turned into a horror movie or animated flicks are your thing, this weekend’s new movies offer a great place to cool off from the high temps.

 

In ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,’ based on the crazy-popular novel of the same name, Lincoln avenges the death of his mother by a vampire by slaying the blood-sucking undead who are hell-bent on taking over the United States.

Pixar’s ‘Brave’ features Merida, a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of a king, who defies an age-old custom and inadvertently unleashes chaos and fury before discovering the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse.

Here’s a sneak peek.
