“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” Combines real details of Lincoln’s life with a secret vampire history. This story is a struggle of Lincoln’s life with the added caveat of vampire’s intent on taking over the world. It is done in an Axe wielding realistic and somber manner.
The story focuses on Lincoln (Benjamin Walker) as a man and savior of not just the United States but the world. He didn’t just save the union and free the slaves but ordered that all vampires must be destroyed.
Adding Flavor to period pieces are tidbits of actual facts. Lincoln’s mother died in 1818 of a thing called milk sickness and his son Edward dying in 1950 of tuberculosis. We find out neither of these causes were the truth.
The movie traces Lincoln’s career from his early days, studying law and splitting vampires heads open, to his career as a politician and later as president: It is the standard fair Lincoln story with hand-to-hand combat with vampires
