During the late 19th century, legendary vampire hunter Gabriel Van Helsing is a man cursed with a past he cannot recall and driven by a mission he cannot deny. Van Helsing finds a land still mired in the past, where legendary creatures of darkness come to life. A place ruled over by the evil, seductive and unbeatable vampire, Count Dracula. It is Dracula that Van Helsing has been sent to terminate. Anna Valerious is one of the last of a powerful royal family, now nearly annihilated by Dracula. A fearless hunter in her own right, Anna is bent on avenging her ancestors and ending an ancient curse by killing the vampire. Joined by a common foe, Van Helsing and Anna set out to destroy Dracula along with his empire of fear. But in challenging an enemy who never dies, Van Helsing uncovers a secret he never imagined and comes face-to-face with the unresolved mysteries of his own enshrouded past. - Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

In search of redemption, the dauntless monster-hunter, Abraham Van Helsing, travels to the depths of late-19th-century Transylvania along with his eccentric companion--the ingenious friar, Carl--to track down and destroy the perfect monster and humankind's arch-nemesis: Count Dracula. There, the professional demon-slayer teams up with the remaining member of an ancient Romanian clan--the brave vampire-killer, Anna Valerius--who will never find peace until she defeats the count once and for all. However, an unstoppable army of undead minions; Dr Victor Frankenstein's abominable creation; Dracula's nightmarish brides, and the beastly Wolf Man stand in the way of the team's noble aspirations. Can they thwart the Count's horrific scheme of world domination? - Nick Riganas
