Abraham Lincoln – Vampire Hunter (2012)

The story line of this action, fantasy, horror thriller is summarized well by garykmcd on IMBD; “At the age of 9, Abraham Lincoln witnesses his mother being killed by a vampire, Jack Barts. Some 10 years later, he unsuccessfully tries to eliminate Barts but in the process makes the acquaintance of Henry Sturgess who teaches him how to fight and what is required to kill a vampire. The quid pro quo is that Abe will kill only those vampires that Henry directs him to. Abe relocates toSpringfieldwhere he gets a job as a store clerk while he studies the law and kills vampires by night. He also meets and eventually marries the pretty Mary Todd. Many years later as President of theUnited States, he comes to realize that vampires are fighting with the Confederate forces. As a result he mounts his own campaign to defeat them.”  This movie was well researched and all the key figures and dates are historically accurate except for the vampires. It was really cool how the war with the vampires plays out at the Battle of Gettysburg with the use of silver weapons. The action scenes withLincolnfighting vampires with his axe were very well done with the use of fast forward and slow motion effects. This was a fun movie which I recommend that every vampire hunter movies fans should see.
