THE Screened Review by Matthew Marko
Smarter than its premise ever looked on paper, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is genuinely entertaining genre fare. The idea might look dumb, but the seriousness with which it plays out as an actual, non-ironic story is refreshing in its honesty and ultimately more worthy than most will give it credit for.

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.
Tom Hardy was approached for the title role of Lincoln, but had to turn it down due to scheduling conflicts with The Dark Knight Rises. Later, Eric Bana, Timothy Olyphant, Adrien Brody, Josh Lucas, James D'Arcy and Oliver Jackson-Cohen were considered to play the role before Benjamin Walker was cast.4 More Trivia
