So let’s get this straight: slavery in the U.S. lasted so long because vampires supported it. In fact, Jefferson Davis made a deal between the Confederacy and the undead. That explains a lot, including why Abraham Lincoln was so determined to obliterate vampires, even to the point of sneaking out of the White House in the dead of night wielding a silver-edged ax, which he used to decapitate vampires while on top of a moving train. Obviously, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is not the kind of movie to launch a million is-this-historically-accurate articles. The real question is whether the film can sustain its self-consciously playful mashup for more than five minutes. Seth Grahame-Smith’s novels certainly don’t.
