Awesome: Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Examples from the book include:

  • Lincoln and Speed luring vampire slavers to their doom; Speed lets them into the house one at a time, and Lincoln quickly dispatches each, with nary a sound (covered by slave gospel).

Examples from the movie include:

  • Pretty much any time Lincoln is beating vampire ass.
  • Bartz throwing a horse at Abe.
    • Also, Abe gets hit by the horse dead-on, but he makes a very nice recovery; in the ensuing tumble, the horse manages to roll back onto its feet and stand up, and Abe manages to cling on, resuming the chase now on horseback.
  • "Where's the silver?!" "Right HERE!" *WHAM* Cue dead Adam. The fact that Lincoln did this at the age of fifty is the icing on that particular cake.
  • Whenever Henry starts fighting, one of these moments isn't far behind.
    • Same for Lincoln, Speed and Will.
  • Mrs. Lincoln gets a rather fitting one when she kills Vadoma by shooting her in the head with her (Mary's) silver Tragic Keepsake (her son's - whom Vadoma had murdered - miniature silver sword).
    • She gets one (combined with Harriet Tubman and some freed slaves), when they transport the silver to the soldiers right under the vampires' noses.
  • Abe killing the pharmacist vampire by way of slashing his throat with a hidden knife that he dropped from his picket and caught with his mouth!
  • An axe that's also a gun?! Hell yes!
