The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

Starring: Benjamin Walker, Rufus Sewell, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Dominic Cooper, Robin McLeavey, Anthony Mackie, Jimi Simpson, Erin Wasson

Director: Timur Bekmambetov


Premise:
After his mother mysteriously dies, a young Abraham Lincoln discovers a world few of vampires and makes it his true life work to kill them all.

My Take:
What was a very interesting and unique novel has been given the glossy Hollywood treatment complete with generic characters, big computer generated effects, and over the top action sequences. It's simply style over substance and if that's your thing, then great. But it's not mine.

Rating: Warning
