Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Becomes A Fake Video Game

Many high-profile movie releases are accompanied by video game adaptations. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter isn't a big enough film to get its own game but it did inspire a video of a fake 16-bit game.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter tells us the "secret life" of the 16th President of the United States. When he wasn't saving the union or freeing the slaves, it appears he was busy killing vampires. The film was based on a best-selling book that probably depressed many MFA students.

The fake video game game, seen below, is a beat 'em up like Double Dragon. Lincoln's wife, Mary Todd, has been kidnapped by vampires. It's up to Honest Abe to rescue her (William Henry Seward is an alternate playable character). The video is about three minutes' worth of Abe slashing enemies with an axe.

Lincoln debuted today in theaters across the United States. Check out our review of the film to find out more about it. You can also check out the official YouTube page of Freddie Wong, the brilliant minds behind the fake game.
