History tells us a lot about Abraham Lincoln but this film explores the illusive story of the sordid world of vampire slaying that the 16th president undertook. After the death of his mother at the hands of a vampire when he was nine, young Abraham is bent on vengeance. But when he meets Henry Sturges, he soon realizes that battling vampires may become a lifelong battle. Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”.
· When Henry comes out of the shadows and bites the man in the alley who’s attacking the girl, the girl runs away and drops her red shawl/sweater horizontally across the alley. It’s still there when Abraham shows up, but when he throws the ax at Henry and walks towards him, the red shawl/sweater is lying vertically next to the wall.
· Adam sees the body of Bart in the coffin. He reaches in and takes the watch from his hand and slams the lid down. The lid is slightly askew on top of the coffin. Adam takes a couple steps away and turns around. The lid is now straight on top of the coffin.
· Mary leaves Abraham’s lunch on the table and calls Willie. After Willie leaves, Abraham and Will are standing at the desk. In the first close-up and following right side view of Will when he’s saying “If you do this, there’s no turning back”, he has his glasses on. They’re off in the next front view of him but back on in the following right side view.
· Abraham finds the pocket watch in Willie’s room after the boy has been bitten. In the close-up of his hands, it shows him opening the watch and the inscription can be seen inside. It cuts back to the close-up of Abe and the watch is still closed.
· When Abraham is giving the Gettysburg Address, his hat and gloves are on the table to his left. The hat can be seen moving (from the wind) and as the camera pans around, the hat falls off the table behind him. In the rear view, the hat and gloves are gone from the table when he finishes his speech. It cuts to a close-up of Abraham and he picks up his gloves and hat, presumably from the table since he didn’t bend down to pick them up.
