First Look at "Van Helsing"
I was pretty excited about the movie "Van Helsing" starring Hugh Jackman. The poster looks awesome. Unfortunately, I've seen the first trailer and I'm less enthusiastic. Hugh Jackman looks cool, but the monsters look cheesy. I still think the best movie monster re-interpretations are the Wolfman, Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster, and Creature from 1987's The Monster Squad. They changed the characters enough to make them look unique, but not so much that they become unrecognizable...like they are in "Van Helsing."
