Format:Blu-ray
4 stars for Asylum Fans
2 1/2 stars: Everyone Else

Just one week after releasing their "Battleship" clone (American Warships after legally being challenged on the title American Battleship by Universal Studios), Asylum churns out its second mockbuster of the season with "Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies." As the big budget, high concept "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" gets ready to hit a theater near you--the brain trust at Asylum are hoping you'll be craving an earlier peak at monster mayhem with our folksy President. I never expect much from an Asylum film, most are shot in a few days with a couple of nickels as the budget. But sometimes bad movie magic strikes. Some of the endeavors have been brilliantly bad (I mean that as a compliment) while others have just been bad bad. Expecting very little from "Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies," I was actually pleasantly surprised. It's not a great movie and lacks requisite chills (it plays more to action conventions than to scary movie ones), but it does have its charms.

After a set-up in which little Abe Lincoln has his life upended by a very personal undead menace, the movie fast forwards to his Presidency. Amidst the havoc of the Civil War, rumors of soldiers returning from the dead start to circulate. Abe (played by Bill Oberst Jr.) recognizes the threat from his boyhood experiences and assembles a crackerjack unit of men to infiltrate enemy lines and combat a zombie menace. Most of the action takes place in a fort as our band of heroes fight for their lives. There is nothing particularly exciting about this meager plot, the zombies are rather silly looking, and every effect is done with cheap CGI. It never approaches anything scary, just relentless.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great laugh and a very dodgy history lesson May 26, 2012
Format:DVD
In the middle of the America Civil War President Lincoln learns of an unusual outbreak at a fort. Soldiers and locals are infected with some kind of virus. The President has an idea what's going on, so he and a group of secret agents travel to the fort.

The virus is an outbreak of the living dead, Abe knows all about zombies (which is revealed at the beginning of the film) so he hatches a plan to dispatch the zombies.

Along the way he is assisted by various historical characters including Pat Garrett, Teddy Roosevelt and various disposable extras who all join in the carnage. Abe is incredibly adept at killing the dead and he does so in quick and lethal fashion. This President doesn't mess around he just kicks some undead ass!!

Bill Oberst, Jr. is terrific as Lincoln and plays his role dead straight with just a slight wink at the audience as he knows it's all very silly and unrealistic. The blood runs in rivers but there is an absent of any real gore aparts from some beheadings, so if anything the film is a campy entertaining action picture.

It's the best Asylum film in ages and it's all looks a lot more expensive then the guys probably spent on it. I personally also liked the washed out monochrome'ish look of the film which adds a nice bit of atmosphere. Historically dodgy (obviously) but a real laugh and a damn good ending.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well done B movie June 2, 2012
Format:DVD
I rented this particular movie. It is an asylum movie which (generally) means low budget, stealing an idea, and releasing the dvd before the actual movie comes out in theaters. They also make modern monster movies (some you've probably seen on the syfy channel).

This particular movie is the alternate piece to abraham lincoln vampire hunter (I believe...but don't know because generally asylum just rips the idea completely; no vampires in this one) released well before the theatrical movie.

If you watch B movies and CAN enjoy them (acquired taste) you'll probably like this one. The acting is generally better than typical asylum movies, the plot moves pretty well, and it's shot pretty well. Much better than it should be. Less "asylum" (not supposed to be funny) humor in this one though.

4.5 for B movie watchers, 3 stars for general movie watchers.

3.0 out of 5 stars Acting so wooden it's unclear which are the zombies.
I love Asylum and its "mockbuster" knock offs of recent films (in this case, Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter). And this one had a few interesting concepts. Read more

2.0 out of 5 stars No! Just..NO!
(More like 2&1/4 stars) Given the company that produced it, Asylum took themselves way too seriously. The film, while well produced technically, it looks very dull.. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars Not a good movie
This movie could have been funny and a great spoof. It wasn't. Boring and dull. I would not recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not for me.
I couldn't get past the first 30 to 45 minutes of it. Who knows, it might have turned around if I would have stuck with it, but I just couldn't.
