This Art Met History and Fiction Prevailed.....It's Entertaining None The Less.
Albeit more historically accurate than "Abe Lincoln Vampire Hunter," this Abe isn't all that honest. Believe what you will but artistic license was taken, revoked, suspended, reinstated and now the artist is doing his mandatory three to life. I like Mr. SS's as much as any movie buff but before the general public swallows this basically "history revised by Hollywierd," they'd do well to heed the words, "those who forget the lessons of history are doomed to repeat them." Dismiss me, laugh, whatever floats your boat but from the first scene to the last, this was a melodramatic play, loosely based on (not in) historical fact. See it though. It's much better than the "Abe" Vampire movie OR the other Vampire movie that opened this weekend. Just don't learn history from movies and TV.....read.
