USA Today

A stylish slasher of a movie, a monster flick that does its vampires right, if not their real-life counterparts.

With so much flesh crunching and bloodletting, it could have been scary as all Walking Dead get-out. Instead, the movie plays safe by...

A pox upon history and an insult to the 16th president of the United States. It's that, of course - actually, that's the point - but this...

What I don't understand is why this extended piece of idiocy chose to sink its stinky teeth into our 16th president. If an axe-wielding...

This insipid mashup of history lesson and monster flick takes itself semi-seriously, which is truly deadly.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter 3D!

By shanawilliams77
I enjoyed this movie! I thought it was going to be cheesy but it was suprisingly entertaining and the vampires were not beautiful and shimmery in the sunlight!...

Did I read the wrong book?

Great "think outside the box" approach to a movie

By taiwanrepublic
I'm not sure why there are so many harsh critics for this movie. I think the story is well written and it mixed some non-fiction element into an otherwise typical vampire movie. Some of the critics...

went to see the ax fighting and found a clever story worked into American history. It's not the piano, but it was entertaining and the ax work was impressive....

Somewhat good?

By jconvy
There were great parts and some really bad parts. Its like the script writer saw the title and wrote a script around it without actually reading the book....

Great story line!

By demarcy
It was awesome seeing all the history woven into the story and they did a great job of creating a world of the turn of the century Washington....

Another bad movie with Tim Burton's name attached

By MedRed
It's really sad that this movie was so bad. The premise was actually "believable" and very interesting. This movie was executed very poorly. Plot and character development were both bad. The story...
