VAN HELSING AT COMIC CON
'Van Helsing' is just one of those projects you dreamed of as a kid. Take all the classic monsters, update their looks and personalities, and throw in some amazing action; the perfect film.
Anyway, smooth guy extrodinare and friend of the Corner Dave Davis was on hand for the demo real Universal had on hand for 'Van Helsing at the San Diego Comic Con, and despite the fact that I'm sure he drank quite a bit between the time he saw it and the time he wrote this piece, he managed to remember a lot of it. Good for him. Here's the part we, as horror fans, are most concerned with...
'Although the Frankenstein monster looks satisfactory (a thick, pale brute), and Roxburgh's Dracula appears to be an evil charmer, Wolf Man was nowhere to be seen in the footage, which gives me the impression that he'll be a computer-generated (or at least assisted) character. For those concerned about the wimp-metal hairstyle Jackman has been wearing while promoting X2, fear not - it looks perfectly appropriate in the context of the film.'
