The title tells it like it is ... at least in the case of this Tim Burton-produced fantasy, about as big a revision of history as there could be. The story traces the supposed pursuits of one of America's most legendary presidents (played by Benjamin Walker, Meryl Streep's son-in-law) before he became the country's leader, and while he supposedly fought bloodsuckers intent on taking control of the nation.
Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (as Mary Todd Lincoln) and Rufus Sewell also are present among the living and the undead. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by writer Seth Grahame-Smith; music video; graphic novel. *** (R: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)
