  • The movie deserves a stake through the heart. show more

  • Instead of getting smirky and campy and blowing out the joke in the first few scenes, Grahame-Smith and director Timur Bekmambetov straight-face it. They ask themselves, well, what would it be like if the main struggle of Lincoln's life were with vampires intent on taking over the new world? And they answer the question as realistically and soberly as they can within this loony framework. show more

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