A good pseudo-history is one that can squeeze into the known facts of history. This one pretends it does. The film opens in 1818 with young Abe having to shoot his own zombie parents. It then jumps to 1865 with news of a zombie infestation at Fort Pulaski. Abe (Kent Igleheart), while searching for the words for his Gettysburg dedication, leads a group of secret service men to the zombie infested fort. At this point the film becomes similar to "Dawn of the Dead" with the fort replacing the shopping mall.

While here Lincoln meets Stonewall Jackson, poorly portrayed by Don McGraw in a cheap comically fake beard. The blood splatter was good and fell on the camera, although those scenes tended to have the color washed out and the blood was unrealistic. In one scene Lincoln is killing a bevy of zombies by swinging his reaper, although the zombies appear to be computer generated. Was that the prostitute using a hoe to kill zombies? Nice touch.

This is a low budget production filmed on location in Savannah Georgia. 3 stars on the Asylum scale

No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

In the middle of the America Civil War President Lincoln learns of an unusual outbreak at a fort. Soldiers and locals are infected with some kind of virus. The President has an idea what's going on, so he and a group of secret agents travel to the fort.

The virus is an outbreak of the living dead, Abe knows all about zombies (which is revealed at the beginning of the film) so he hatches a plan to dispatch the zombies.

Along the way he is assisted by various historical characters including Pat Garrett, Teddy Roosevelt and various disposable extras who all join in the carnage. Abe is incredibly adept at killing the dead and he does so in quick and lethal fashion. This President doesn't mess around he just kicks some undead ass!!

Bill Oberst, Jr. is terrific as Lincoln and plays his role dead straight with just a slight wink at the audience as he knows it's all very silly and unrealistic. The blood runs in rivers but there is an absent of any real gore aparts from some beheadings, so if anything the film is a campy entertaining action picture.

After reading other reviews I was led to believe that I was going to enjoy watching this film, this was very much not the case. This is a bad idea for a story with no direction and really bad script and acting. At first I thought it was funny that it was so bad but after a short time I realized this film was so bad it was just not funny. To sum it up it is a total waste of money.

Absolute rubbish. It's delivered and filmed like one of them American TV movies. Trying to be some kind of quirky comedy but fails to deliver.

Fell asleep 40 mins into the film. Without doubt one of the worse films i have ever watched (and i've watched alot).

BEWARE-PLEASE AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!

Never saw such an uninspired movie, and the actors act like they know just that. Even a bunch of robots would act with more passion and grandeur than this bunch.
Not even sure this is a horror movie, it's a bit gory sometimes yes, but it's all covered up with fancy CGI and effects, just like it's supposed to be in the big blockbuster mind of today's filmmaking.
But it does not cover the fact this is an absolute DULL movie. It's not even funny, no suspense, it's not romantic, it's...
Nothing. Just plain nothing. It goes nowhere at all, and it doesn't even START anywhere to be honest... Save your money for better movies.

IZ.

Asylum pictures are slowly starting to get better in both production and story values.This was One of the First to begin that trend of spending a little more money and employing Actors that can ACT!.The One thing I will say though is that at roughly the 3 quarter way mark.Three Cars can clearly be seen in the background as Two of the cast discuss how they should proceed through this Army of 1800's American Undead.My Advice? Hail One of the Cabs that are passing by Behind You!!!.

Just watched this. It has the look and feel of a school movie project. Lots of hand held camera shots, abysmal make-up, one set viewed from many angles and cgi straight from the worst of the sy-fy channel collection. But I loved it. The delivery of shockingly cheesy lines is deadpan perfection. It is not really gory at all. There is the odd decapitation done very much in a cartoon style and I feel that is just the right level as this could easily be shown to a young teenage audience. All of the actors look very serious and sound very pompous and this juxtaposes beautifully with the zombie goings-on around them. I loved Abraham's flick scythe. I was entertained.

Defiantly not taking it's self to seriously, its a good old fashion B grade zombie move.
I found it entertaining to begin with but soon became to samey and boring.
Bill Oberst, Jr. as Lincoln was very good and holds the entire movie together.
Granted the majority of acting is very average or at least the parts don't give the actors a chance to shine

Main draw for me it was filmed at Fort Widley Portsmouth which is only a few miles away

Would not recommend it unless it's for a late night post pub watch!
