Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Coolest movie EVER!

I love movie ideas that go outside the box. And this one is so outside the box that it's flying to the Moon!

Abe hunts vampires with a silver tipped axe, which is also rigged with a gun that shoots silver bullets. If you know your vampire lore, only silver can kill a vampire.

So why is Abe a vampire hunter in the first place? Because when he was a boy his mother was killed by a vampire and Abe is out for revenge.

Adam, the leader of the vampires owns a plantation and feeds on his slaves. He wants to take over America and make it a haven for all vampires. So he sends his vampire minions to fight with the Rebels against the Union.

At the Battle of Gettysburg, Abe supplies the troops with silver bayonets and bullets. Even Mary Todd Lincoln gets in the act and has a final showdown with the evil vampiress.


  1. It's a very funny and cool idea- glad the execution works!

  2. Craig: I was blown away by the amazing cinematography. The script was smart. Acting topnotch. SFX INSANE! This movie worked on so many levels, but it could have turned on a dime to become ridiculous. Director Timur Bekmambetov hit the perfect note. Brilliant piece of work.

  3. You made this movie actually sound interesting, Luana. Maybe I'll add it to my must-see list after all.

  4. Patricia: Keep in mind it's extremely gorey with the blood etc. Rated "R" if that makes a difference.

  5. This one hooked me with its preview. I'm hoping to catch it this weekend.

  6. Leslie: I was intrigued by the title and then by the trailer. Not everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed it.
