We went out for a date night and went to see this film on a whim and it was surprisingly well done. I don't expect much from zombie movies to begin with, but this one is a keeper! The story actually broke the overdone zombie flick mold. I actually enjoyed the story and wanted to see and hear what the actors were saying and doing, instead of just cheering for the zombies like I would in many zombie movies. So, the film kept me interested and kept me entertained. There were quite a few overly dramatic, action scenes with Abraham Lincoln and they were funny and over the top.I don't <more>
want to spoil anything, so I won't go into details, but there are quite a few "cheesy" historical references. It actually helps to have at least a little bit of a clue about American History to get some of the humor.The movie actually worked out quite nicely. Funny and entertaining.This is a movie I will add to my collection of Blu Ray
I think that this movie was excellent. It was an action packed thriller that always kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next. The makeup was wonderful, the fighting was amazing, the dialogue was filled with ingenious one liners EMANCIPATE THIS was one example of such a one liner , and the special effects were wondrous. I recommend this movie to every one i know. I think that the movie was throughout a very scary horror movie. I also felt very attached to the characters especially Lincoln. I thought that Lincoln was a very handsome actor and played the part very well. I also <more>
thought that the women in this movie played the parts of the damsel in distress very well. Overall i give this movie a 10/10 for just being the best movie ever, would bang again.
Uncompromisingly Powerful Alternate History and Superb Horror Film (by dianerpessler-46164)
Director Richard Schenkman, working from his own original script, brings to the screen a unique alternate history of the Civil War and the role of the Great Emancipator in the Union victory. The amazing concept of Abraham Lincoln having to engage in battle with the walking dead in order to, not only preserve the Union, but to purge the Confederacy of evil, is astounding on its face. However, this film is so well conceived and beautifully realized with outstanding production values that the audience is quickly caught up in this dark struggle between Lincoln and the zombies. Bill Oberst, Jr. <more>
gives a superb performance as Lincoln and it is much more than a caricature. Oberst's Lincoln is a tortured soul looking unblinkingly into the eyes of evil incarnate and it's an amazing portrayal. Debra Crittenden is simply excellent and deeply moving as the troubled Mary Todd Lincoln, loyal wife but unstable ally to the president. At times horrific, with unforgettable imagery and stunning action sequences, this is a film that will please genre fans and historical scholars alike.
Excellent for the Faint-of-Heart Zombie Fans (by cweinstein-95)
Useful for the zombie lovers of all ages. I took my seven year old sister and she adored the actors in the familiar Savannah area where we live! Definitely good for the faint of heart zombie fans! There are some things to be noted: 1 Directors did a good job in keeping this focused not on the gore, but on some history as well such as Lincoln, Booth, etc. 2 Make-up is extraordinary on the zombies, such as the blood 3 FINALLY a movie with no cussing I enjoyed the film, so will the other viewers who are crazy for history and historic people/places!ONE MORE NOTE: Did I mention this takes place <more>
Highly enjoyable and effective zombie effort (by kannibalcorpsegrinder)
Leading the Union in battle, President Lincoln discovers the return of a deadly disease that revives the dead has afflicted a small community vital to his efforts and leads the charge to cut them down and win the Civil War.On the whole this one was a highly enjoyable and exciting effort with a lot to like about it. One of the best aspects to this one is the fact that there's a lot more historical importance placed here than would otherwise seem weird or forgotten in such a situation that gets placed throughout this to make for an entertaining time. This in turn leads to a ton of action <more>
throughout here that tends to come off rather nicely with the opening barn attack and the exciting shootout to overtake the fortress being quite enjoyable at not only being fun scenes but also managing to feature enough historical appeal to come off better than expected. Still, the biggest aspect here is the zombie encounters as there's a rather fun voyage into town that manages to feature some blazing shootouts and some thrilling suspense with the ever-growing hordes slowly approaching the group and forcing some old-school defensive tactics to keep themselves from being attacked. There's also the impressive finale as their plan to take out the swarm in town comes with plenty of exciting scenes of zombie carnage as well as body dismemberment that includes far more gore than expected which helps to make this one all the more enjoyable by mixing together all the different influences and sources quite nicely. Likewise, there's the over-the-top finale which manages to feature some exciting action, plenty of gore and rather thrilling moments in the race to get out of the fortress before it blows up which all make for a great time throughout here as well as the fun times with the zombies. Not only is there a coherent and logical motive for the introduction to the word into the film by tying it to the African folklore brought up by the black slave which makes the most sense but also they're treatment here features the rather novel idea of using sound as their prime motivator and allowing the squad to easily maneuver around them if they don't make too much noise which is rather nice that ties into the viral condition of their origins, and when placed alongside the fine make-up effects come off rather nicely overall. These here more than make-up for the film's lone problem which is the utterly inane amount of re-writing it does to try to make the action historically accurate. The actions of the Confederate spy are the biggest which makes no sense, and attempting to place the actions of the real-life figures to their true fates comes off rather lamely. Aside from some shoddy CGI, that's about all this one has going against it.Rated R: Graphic Violence and Language.

Not expecting Oscar material given the title, but really fun movie (by ProfessorSmashmouth)
I rented this to watch with my son. Direct to video, fun premise, that our nation's best president had to battle zombies. Naturally, you aren't expecting anything profoundly serious. Reading some of these reviews you wonder what are people truly expecting. We found it fun to watch, decent action, funny premise, acting was fine, special effects were fine. Obviously not a big budget movie, but it did not look too low budget. Actually worth a watch if you can watch it with a kid and have fun with it. It was a good time watching it with my 11 year old son and a good memory as we are both <more>
history buffs but now sometimes talk about how Lincoln not only saved the union and freed the slaves but also slayed vampires and zombies.
