As Abraham Lincoln labors over the Gettysburg address, the importance of which he is fully aware, he learns that a menace from his past has returned, threatening to tear the already fractured nation to pieces. He must journey behind enemy lines to face a foe far more fearsome than the Confederate army: the walking dead.

OK, I'm  just going to say it! From beginning  to end this is a fantastic movie! Not what I was expecting at all. This movie has more going for it than not. The story was strong the directing was good and the acting was brilliant (more on that in a minute).

Now this movie does have some weak spots but for a low budget if you relax and get wrapped into this movie it does not matter. So on to  the weak, it is only a few things of course for a gore fest way to much CG blood. This is the broken record when it comes to Asylum. I was having trouble getting past some of this. At first, it was fine but it tainted the movie at times. Second the scenery felt out of place at times and to clean for a war zone but again easy to get best thanks to Karl Hirsch's writing. And last of the bad I swear it was the same 15 zombies over and over again. Sure I get it you need to save money someplace but change the clothes or the makeup so we die hard fans don't get too upset.  


Now on to the good. This IS the strongest cast I have seen in an Asylum film ever! This is also one of  the strongest plots for this mockbuster! And they are not shy when it comes to spinning a big blockbuster and making it their own. This time, it truly worked. After watching Abe smack down some zombies I became a big fan of  Robert Ogden who played Robert Chamberlain. Between Ogden and Bill Oberst Jr. they made you forget about the bad CG and lame battlefield.

Living in the Land Of Lincoln I'm glad Bill Oberst Jr. represents  all that is well with honest Abe. Talk abut hitting the jackpot. Asylum had the right man for the role. He had the look the voice and the zombie killing mojo that made this movie enjoyable.

Abe's weapon of choice was fun and the way he whipped it out of his coat genius. And Abe's wit in this movie was top notch  even better than the time our 16th president helped the Star Ship Enterprise
on the planet Excalbia!

And before you complain about sleeping zombies just look at it this way before the nuclear fallout of today olden day Zombies needed there rest. Get over it! The ending of this movie was truly a high point. I'm not one for spoilers so I will not give anything away other than to say it was well done.

This is not the greatest movie ever but if you are looking for a time killer on a rainy day you owe it to yourself to see it. On the bright side if you see this you will soon be able to say I remember Bill Oberst Jr. when he was doing low budget films. Yes, he is the next big thing! And he should be on the top of the list for best portrayal our 16th President.

This movie does a good job kicking Zombie Butt! 4 yes 4 bloody brains out of 5 it is a good time!

4 Bloody Brains out of 5

Bonus Features on the Disc A fun little Making Of Featurette.


Holy Crap the world is coming to an end that's 2 Asylum films that did better than 2 bloody brains.
