Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter

Continuity mistake: When Lincoln is hacking down the tree, he manages to chop a big part of it, but when he gives the final blow, before the tree sort of explodes, there is not a single scratch on it.


Continuity mistake: While Henry is talking to Abe in the bar after some time of training, we can see that his face has healed. However, in the next scene where he shows Abe the vampire targets, his face is as beat up as before.

Continuity mistake: When Will and Abe are discussing sending more troops, Will is wearing glasses, but when he says "If you do this there is no turning back Abe" there is as side shot and he is no longer wearing glasses, then the shot switches to frontal and there they are again.


Factual error: After the Fort Sumter battle, Mary Todd sees the newspaper on Lincoln's desk which states "20,000 soldiers dead", and what appears to be an April 1861 date (which makes sense since that's when the Battle of Fort Sumter took place.) However, there were zero causalities at that battle. And the first major battle, First Battle of Bull Run in late 1861, didn't even see 1,000 causalities.


Continuity mistake: When Abraham Lincoln picks up the pocket watch left in Willie's room, he opens it, but in the next shot it's closed.


Factual error: At the start of the war, it says Fort Sumter 1861. However, on the battlefield we see the US flag with 35 stars. In April 1861, there were only 33 states.


Continuity mistake: When Jack Barts is lying on the ground, right before Abe kills him, his right hand is empty. When he is lying in the casket and Adam opens his hand, there is Abe's pocket watch.

Continuity mistake: As Abraham ends his speech on stage near the end of the movie one of the men behind him puts his hat on twice - once in the camera shot behind, and again in the camera shot from the front. (01:35:10)


Continuity mistake: In the final fight scene atop the train, Lincoln's African American colleague Will is attacked by the head vampire and is knocked backward over the side of the boxcar. He is seen with his feet nearly over the edge and Abe is seen 7-10' away, lying on the forward end of the car, facing him. In the next shot, Will continues his backward fall and Abe's arm appears over the edge of the roof, grabbing Will's leg. There's no way Abe could have risen from his position atop the car and covered the considerable distance in time to reach down and save Will.

Factual error: When Abraham and Speed are hiding in the belltower, Speed bumps into the bell's pulley and it tolls loudly. The nudge wasn't hard enough for the bell's clapper (pendulum) to hit the side of the bell.
