Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies (2012)


As Abraham Lincoln labors over the Gettysburg address, the importance of which he is fully aware, he learns that a menace from his past has returned, threatening to tear the already fractured nation to pieces. He must journey behind enemy lines to face an foe far more fearsome than the Confederate army: the walking dead.

REVIEW: The Asylum is normally a pretty solid source of fun, campy, entertaining low budget B-Movies and Mockbusters (low budget rip-offs of big budget theatrical movies), to the point where they're actually my favorite low budget company, and Abraham Lincoln vs Zombies, their obvious mockbuster on the much-more popular Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, is no exception.


Actually, if anything, this was one of Asylum's best efforts at the time of release in 2012; It has great gore, exciting well-shot action scenes, realistic-looking set pieces and locations for the time period it was set in, above-average acting by their standards, catchy music, and even though I didn't care for movie lead Bill Oberst Jr in another of their movies, Haunting in Salem, I actually thought he was perfectly cast here as the title character with his switchblade-esqe zombie-killing scythe.


Some of the zombie make-up and acting was a bit underwhelming, I'll admit, but I'm willing to overlook that since every other aspect of this was really well-done for such a low budget affair, and this was just one hell of a fun watch, regardless of whatever faults it may have due to its tiny budget.
