It is during this time that he meets Henry Sturges, who tells him that he is a vampire hunter. He goes on to teach Abe about how to kill vampires, but only if Abe promises that he kills only those that Henry directs him to. Abe moves to Springfield, studies law and meets Mary Todd. He eventually gets married to Mary, despite Henry’s warning about relationships. Abe also becomes the President of the United States.

5. Daybreakers

Release Date: January 8, 2010

Director: Michael Spierig

The story happens 10 years in the future, where the population is comprised of 5% humans and vampires making up the rest. This spells trouble for vampires, as they no longer have ample supply of human blood to sustain their existence. There is also evidence showing that vampires deprived of human blood evolve into violent creatures that kill anyone just to survive. Dr. Edward Dalton is a vampire and hematologist. He researches for a way to supply vampires with artificial blood, which is also born out of his sympathy toward the remaining human population. His thoughts change, however, when he meets someone who has discovered a way to transform from being a vampire to a human.
