“..watching this is like flipping channels randomly between a Masterpiece Theatre drama and a splatter film on Cinemax..”

“..this isn't "period" style; it's just sloppy..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..the whole thing collapses into an incoherent mess..”
2.5 of 4

“..the concept of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is worthy of a good chuckle or two, but the execution proves that sometimes a clever title does not beget a production of equal value..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
1 of 5

“..never comes close to a metafictional trope that inspired or, for that matter, heartfelt; rather, it's content to wallow in its own high concept, which is already more than a little trite..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]

“..joyless, deafening cinematic headache commits a different crime. It's a sin against entertainment..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]

“..is almost no fun at all..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..high-camp concept with a straight face, sucking all the fun out of a geeky romp and leaving behind an oddly joyless slog that rarely seems to be in on the joke of itself..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..credibly delivers the thrills and gore it promises, though it's ultimately too lightweight and conventional to merit either cult or classic status..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“..a deft balance of silly, straight-faced and splattery..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
