- I enjoyed the movie, even though I feel it was too short. Only a few scares for those who want to see more, but the movie is a gorgeous, action-packed ride. My only complaint, and this is one I feel is a common problem with books translated to film, is that it is barely an adaptation of the novel. A truer adaptation would have been long and slow, so I understand why Seth Grahame-Smith trimmed and primped as he did. Let me put it this way: the novel was like reading a biography of Abe with vampires added, but the movie was like watching a period vampire flick with Abe added. Just know that going in and I think you’ll enjoy the movie. I especially enjoyed Mary Elizabeth Winstead (forever known by me as the hot girl from Scott Pilgrim) in her role as Mary Todd Lincoln — she was great. Rufus Sewell makes a pretty good bad guy, too. Alan Tudyk didn’t have nearly enough screen time as Stephen Douglas.
- By the way, the “vampire hunter” at the end of the movie, who we only see from behind, is writer Seth Grahame-Smith himself.
- Michelle gives it an 8, Dan gives it a 7.
