Storyline

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 to Springfield where 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 the United States, he comes to realize that vampires are fighting with the Confederate forces. As a result he mounts his own campaign to defeat them.

Trivia

Several times through the course of his early training, Lincoln sustains wounds to his right eye. This is a possible reference to actual future events. When Booth shot Lincoln at Ford's Theater, the bullet lodged just behind his right eye. See more »

Goofs

Mary Todd Lincoln grabs and uses a Spencer 1860 repeating carbine at Gettysburg; however, Spencer carbines were not present at the Battle of Gettysburg. Union Brigadier General George A. Custer's Michigan cavalry unit did use full-length Spencer *rifles* in the battle, but there were no carbine-length variants, like the one used by Mary Todd Lincoln, in service at the time.

Quotes

[first lines]
Abraham Lincoln: [voice-over in his journal] History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quiet deeds. History remembers the battle and forgets the blood. Whatever history remembers of me, if it remembers anything at all, it shall only be a fraction of the truth. For whatever else I am - a husband, a lawyer, a President - I shall always think of myself as a man who struggled against darkness.

What did you expect to see more?
22 October 2012 | by udorichtSee all my reviews

If you take this movie so serious you'll be disappointed 'cause it's not. But if you take it as fun movie, fulled of action/fantasy/horror scenes and as what it is then you can give it a chance. Maybe, the character of Abraham Lincoln defined as vampire slayer is naive and childish and is not what you expected to see for historical important figure. Maybe someone thinks that this is disgrace for the character. And finally maybe someone thinks there is a storyline abstraction 'cause the book is better and I don't doubt that even I haven't read it. All this defects are not so important if you like movies in this kind of genre like Underworld, Resident Evil etc. This was a movie that deserves attention and give it a try.
