“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” (2012) Review

(source)

HorrorCrone and I recently saw the hit vampire film, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”. This blockbuster was based off of a best-selling novel by Seth Grahame-Smith. And according to my horror companion, HorrorCrone, the movie is nothing like the book! The book is wholly historically accurate (except for the vampires, obviously), while the new movie is not wholly historically accurate, but is for some parts . Although the film and novel were written by the same person, the two are quite different… But I won’t get into more information on the book… That is HorrorCrone’s job.

Anyway; the film’s CGI and stunts were amazing! The way the blood and guts splattered was disgusting yet epic at the same time! The cinematography was fabulous! The way you see all of the fights between Abraham Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) and the vampires were brilliant.  The vampires were horrifying! The way they looked and got around was extremely disturbing but in a good way. It kept you at the edge of your seat the whole movie, it was so intense. You really didn’t know what was coming for the innocent victims and Abraham.

“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” was directed and produced by Timur Bekmambetov, also produced by Tim Burton and Jim Lemley, and written by Seth Grahame-Smith. Great job to all the people who helped make this movie possible! I rate this film a 4.6/5 stars! I loved it and I hope for a sequel.
