FDR: American Badass!



What has two wheels and kills werewolves?

Any student of Nazi history knows about Hitler's obsession with the occult, so it's totally plausible that the Führer was actually a werewolf. Also, totally believable that FDR contracted polio from a werewolf bite.

FDR: American Badass! was made by a couple of guys you never heard of (Garrett Brawith &  Ross Patterson) with what look like Ed Wood-level production values, but the idea is so awesome that they've attracted a roster of talented actors who all seem totally into the proceedings. Barry Bostwick from The Rocky Horror Picture Show plays FDR and he's joined by Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) as Abraham Lincoln, Ray Wise (Twin Peaks and 24) as General Douglas MacArthur and features Bruce McGill (D-Day from Animal House) and Paul Ben-Victor (The Wire) in supporting roles.

The movie will be available on DVD and VOD on September 25th, but there's a debut public screening at Comic Con on July 13th if you find yourself in San Diego that weekend. This looks way better than that new Bill Murray FDR movie or Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter.
