Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

The movie, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, is based on the proposition not all men are created equal, although the lead character — his vampire slaying acrobatics notwithstanding — would like to think otherwise. Played by Benjamin Walker, Abraham sets out to avenge the death of his mother at the hands of a vampire. He masters the use of a silver-laden axe under the tutelage of a mysterious vampire slayer, Henry Sturges. Soon after, Henry sends Abe back to his hometown Springfield, where he finishes off bloodsucking pharmacists, bank managers, lawmakers, even pastors, until he realizes that a much grander scheme was in the works that threatens future of the entire nation.

The script’s imaginative take on history isn’t to be taken seriously. Although Director Timur Bekmambetov tries (successfully at that) to make something as far-fetched as a vampire-slaying President of the USA plausible. It is hard to imagine Abraham Lincoln now as the seemingly rigid but gentle man behind the Emancipation Proclamation, what with the stellar gory action sequences that can’t be seen anywhere else. If you got the knack for history paired with enough guts for macabre, watch this film!
