Abraham Lincoln is probably one of the most iconic figures in American History. Not only has he got the legacy of a great president but he’s a fore father who tried and sparked the flame to abolish slavery across America. In films, he has been portrayed many a time, most recently in Spielberg’s epic Lincoln, by three-time Oscar winning Daniel Day-Lewis. Wrapping his acting chops around this idol was no easy feat and an instant classic was born through this whopping tale of courage, bravery and humanity.
That isn’t the movie that I’m talking about today however as only a year before, Timur Bekmambetov also did a film adaptation of the president, except this time, he kills vampires. With an axe!
