Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies

Ol' Honest Abe scythes through the undead in this well-shot Asylum film. It's pretty easy to pick on The Asylum. I won't. They make cruddy low-budget genre films 'inspired' by popular blockbusters, they fill a void in my Netflix queue, and they're a quick go-to when I need to watch something that sucks. I know that sounds harsh, but it's a compliment. I don't care for the blockbusters they borrow from, the selection on Netflix is lousy, and I watch too many crappy movies. The Asylum is very useful to me. Anyway, Abraham Lincoln Vs. Zombies is the best Asylum film I've seen so far, but that still doesn't make it very good. The acting is bad, the dialogue is bad; but Bill Oberst makes for a believable Emancipator and the tintype-like cinematography was pleasant to look at. Here's a trailer:


  1. Best Asylum movie is like saying freshest dead person. Dead is dead.

    But yeah, I agree. This is well above their usual caca.

  2. Well, I'm running out of bad movies to watch so it's either the Asylum or Troma.
