Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Abraham-Lincoln-Vampire-Hunter[1]

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is one of the strangest film I have ever seen – and I have seen my fair share of strange films in my life time.

It starts out like a fairly good period piece and then it turns into some sort of science fiction, fantasy thing. I don’t even know how to describe it.

Many years ago when someone introduced me to the “Interview with the Vampire” I wasn’t really blown away. For some reason I can’t relate to the vampire films of any age (classical or modern).

However, I found Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter quite enjoyable and entertaining, which should be the goal of every single vampire film – since the idea of the vampire alone is so silly that it cannot be part of any proper, serious drama.

This is, of course, my own opinion. Some people take vampirism very seriously, and I don’t blame them, and certainly don’t think that they are stupid or anything like that.

Honestly, before going to see it, I mixed it up with Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln. It is very stupid on my part, but they did come out around the same time.

While I found them to be excellent in their own genre, Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln was a bit more interesting. In Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter I had to scroll through some of the dialogues because they seemed unimportant considering the overall theme of the film: killing vampires with very creative methods.

Even though the killing was quite gory, I found the story heart warming and and a bit silly at the same time. The combination of these three elements didn’t settle quite well with me.

I have to admit, the overall score of the film in my had is positive enough to make we watched this movie again someday, but not very soon.
