When he arrives in Springfield, Lincoln meets Adam, who reveals that he has since been killed by a hunter. Adam is killed by Barts, who Lincoln assumes is also a vampire hunter. Adam does not recognize him, and Lincoln stays with Barts, who tells him that Vadoma is a fast-like vampire (she is one of the weakest and can only move at night or when she is not attacked by other vampires). Vadoma's weakness is salt water, a weakness that she shares with her brother. Although Barts, who originally belonged to Vadoma, fights back when Lincoln's and Vadoma's vampirism is discovered, he becomes angered when Lincoln and Vadoma fall in love and transform each other to be fast-like. He seeks to stop both of them, and instead turns Barts into a vampire. Barts attacks Lincoln, and Lincoln kills him with a knife made from Adam's silver watch. Lincoln returns to Vadoma, who believes that he is a vampire and takes him to Adam's plantation. They discover Adam's sister, Semea, and while Lincoln kills her, Vadoma returns and convinces him that Adam is not a vampire. However, Semea's body is soon found. Lincoln realizes that Semea had actually killed Adam, who then turned her into a vampire.
Francis Ford Coppola, an avid Lincoln apologist, later confessed his disdain for this film. Further igniting Coppola's disdain for the film, he added, "I'm not saying [this movie] is without merit, because it doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's poorly written and badly directed, and it just isn't funny at all. And it has got great characters in it, but they're all dead, so you can't cheer for them. So it's supposed to be a horror movie and it's not, it's supposed to be a comedy and it isn't, and it's supposed to be about human beings and it isn't." d2c66b5586
