31 Days of Dracula | Richard Roxburgh (2004)
Probably the less said about Van Helsing the better. It should have been SO good. Hugh Jackman as a young Van Helsing teams up with Kate Beckinsale to fight all the classic monsters...
Actually, it's probably that last part where it went wrong. It doesn't make a lot of sense to have Van Helsing fight Dracula before Dracula. Maybe if they'd stuck to one monster - Frankenstein's for instance - it would have been easier to keep under control. Save werewolves for the sequel, then move on to a mummy or something. That would have been awesome.
But no, they wanted it all, including Dracula and his teenage-girl haircut. Disappointing.
