Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Synopsis: At the age of 9, Abraham Lincoln witnesses his mother being killed by a vampire, Jack Barts. Some 10 years later, he unsuccessfully tries to eliminate Barts but in the process makes the acquaintance of Henry Sturgess who teaches him how to fight and what is required to kill a vampire. The quid pro quo is that Abe will kill only those vampires that Henry directs him to. Abe relocates to Springfield where he gets a job as a store clerk while he studies the law and kills vampires by night. He also meets and eventually marries the pretty Mary Todd. Many years later as President of the United States, he comes to realize that vampires are fighting with the Confederate forces. As a result he mounts his own campaign to defeat them.

Should we dive right in?

Or are you finding Gabrielle's

egress too distracting?

I am sorry, sir, but who are you?

Who I am is Henry Sturges.

And where you are is my home.

And what happened...

I saved your life

during your rather pathetic

attempt at taking another's.

What were you doing there, and

how did you know

I would try to kill Barts?


I watched this boy carry out his

first long-awaited mission.

Drunk, might I add.

And I think, "You have wasted your

time watching this one, Henry."

"He's not a promising recruit."

"He is just a selfish boy with

his heart set on vengeance."

And I realized,

"This boy is a goddamned idiot."

"I doubt he even knew

his target was a vampire."

A vampire?

Yes. Immortal, blood-sucking demons.

Fortunately for you, Mr. Lincoln,

hunting them is something of a hobby.

But vampires are just myths.

Myths don't beat you senseless

after you have put

a bullet in their brain.

Thank you.

No, Mr. Lincoln, vampires are real.

They exist in every city

and every state....

in the Union.

If what you say is true,

you could help me kill him.

I could pay you to kill him.

My services are not for sale.

And the word you are

looking for is "destroy."

It is quite a feat to kill

that which is already dead.

But you don't understand.

My mother was murdered.

And if I teach you how

to murder her murderer,

so what?

How will that honor her memory?

How will that benefit the next

boy whose mother is taken?

If vengeance is all you seek,

seek it elsewhere.

Teach me to fight as you do.

Please, I will do anything you say.

You promise to cast aside

all notions of vengeance

and commit to the life of a hunter?

You will have no friends,

no family.

I will give you names....

I told him what he wanted to hear,
