Up until a few years ago, I never gave much though to vampire movies. I don't really care for blood and guts type films. However, my husband loves them. Over the years, we've been able to compromise on action/adventure films. As for vampirish movies, he'd watch them without me and I'd agree to watch mushy romance flicks without him. It worked out well, for many years. After all, we each had buddies to drag along to the theatres. Then we moved to South Dakota and there were no buddies to take along to the movies. Not wanting to go alone, we agreed to find yet another compromise. That's when he introduced me to the video version of Blade (since he knew I was a Snipes fan) and then the League of Extraordinary Men (cuz I love me some Connery). So it was no surprise that Van Helsing would be next.
Van Helsing is quite a masterpiece when it comes to special effects. And the costumes and set scenery is fantastic! I would, however, caution you when showing this film to young children because it is a bit violent and scary.
It's about a family who has been fighting vampires for nearly 400 years. The last of their dying breed, Anna and her brother attempt to rid the world of Dracula once and for all. Only Anna's brother is captured and turned into a werewolf and Anna must trust a destructive Van Helsing.
Together, they take on Dracula only to discover that he has created an enormous army of baby vampires and is on the verge of giving them everlasting life.
Order Van Helsing today.
