Starring Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Anthony Mackie, Rufus Sewell
Entertaining. Ludicrous. Exciting.
Did you know that while our sixteenth president was working on restoring the union and ending slavery, he was also battling an immortal enemy? According to this film, Abraham Lincoln’s mother was raped and murdered by a vampire, his son was murdered by a vampire, and the South employed vampires in their army. The premise of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Slayer is ridiculous bordering on offensive. That being said, I found the over the top action scenes and gothic comic book style exciting. It’s all fairly well-done and appealing for those who appreciate camp.
