Abraham Lincoln killing vampires … how could they go wrong? Director Timur Bekmambetov has most certainly found a way, turning in a boring, redundant and humorless film. Benjamin Walker is given little to do as Lincoln; he walks around looking glum and occasionally swings an ax at unconvincing-looking vampires. The movie posits that the Confederacy was full of vampires during the Civil War, yet it has absolutely no fun with this idea. I was hoping for something that I could file alongside Evil Dead 2—a film with good, sick fun and a dash of camp humor. Instead, the movie is tedious and bland. One of the year’s biggest cinematic letdowns.

Charleston City Paper Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter is a travesty While Bekmambetov isn’t quite the villain that James Wilkes Booth proved to be, the director is responsible for the travesty he has delivered to us, and finds himself with a smoking gun of a terrible film in his hands. by Isaac Weeks 06/22/2012
