Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

Yesterday, I went back into conspiracy mode and outlined rising HAARP readings across certain areas of the United States. While those readings are still high and I discovered another one of the signs of HAARP devastation today with the eruption of another Central American volcano, there is still no sign of what disaster awaits; although, it could be a blizzard, as a storm is bearing down upon the region with the highest readings. Who knows? To pass some time, I decided to watch something fun, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter from 2012.
Plot/ Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, discovers vampires are planning to take over the United States. He makes it his mission to eliminate them.
I intentionally put this flick off for some time, as I expected it to be another over-hyped horror flick. I was wrong, as I found an extremely entertaining, albeit over-the-top, horror flick that had an original storyline. This action-packed gem is not for everyone, as serious history buffs will have a coronary, but it is well worth the watch. The acting was solid, the action scenes fun and well made and the cinematography and pacing were spot on. Yes, the idea is ridiculous, but the title says that. Yes, there are some flaws; as some of the dialogue may be too comedic, the make-up effects were uneven with their aging and the scripting did leave some holes, but those are small flaws in the grand scheme. In the end, this action-packed horror flick was a joy to watch with vampires being slaughtered around every corner. Sure, it is not for staunch history buffs without a sense of humor, but for the rest of society, I think you should give it a chance.
