Print the legend

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a fascinating folly, taking that premise entirely seriously (there are literally three other jokes in the film) to the point that its blaming historical tragedies on vampires without a hint of levity is at least dubiously tasteful. It takes pains not to blame slavery on vampires, while happily blaming them for other things.

Still, at least most of it is in focus.

Mixing up fantasy and reality should always be done with care, in case the specifics or even the general idea of doing so offends.
