Overview

Composed by Henry Jackman (Kick-Ass, Man on a Ledge, Monsters vs. Aliens), the soundtrack for kinetic Russian director Timur Bekmambetov's highly stylized film adaptation of author Seth Graham-Smith's genre mash-up novel Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter fuses explosive action cues and traditional atmospheric horror passages onto a gritty Old West backbone that suggests an alternative metal rendering of an Ennio Morricone-penned spaghetti Western score. Lincoln works best on selections like "Power Comes from Truth" and "The Gettysburg Address," both of which utilize the grand sweep of expansive, Aaron Copland/John Barry-inspired symphonic Americana with a sort of grim, realistic determination that belies the completely absurd notion of the 16th President of the United States wielding a silver axe in Matrix-inspired slow motion, while the filthy heads of an invading vampire horde pile up around him.
