Number 9: Van Hellsing

Gabriel Vanhelsing

On number Nine its the movie Vanhelsing, in my honest opinion this is a great Vampire flick, if anyone has played the Castlevania series of videogames this is as close as your gonna get to seeing it on a movie.
Vanhelsing follows the account of Gabriel Vanhelsing (played by Hugh Jackman), a Demon hunter ordained by the church to slay all sorts of demons and clense the lands of all corruption and darkness.
The character is loosely based on Abraham Vanhelsing from Bram Stokers Dracula that was a scientist and a scholar of the occult that wore the mantle of vampire slayer, and was known by the nickname Silver Blade. But for this movie they changed his name to Gabriel, and they tryied to tie the loose ends making the viewer to belieave that Gabriel is the left hand of God as he is the Angel Gabriel.

Count Dracula

The main villain is as in many vampire movies Lord Dracula, and as always he is evil and perverse, and he wants to give life to his "Children", that are like vampire bats that where born in a cocoon laid by his 3 brides.
Although i never did understand the meaning of wanting "HIS CHILDREN" to be born since being a vampire one could EMBRACE anyone but still its kind of a dull story but the action is quite good.

Draculas brides



The main plot is that the Valerious family vowed to slay the evil Lord Dracula or their kinsmen or they shall never rest in peace, so all the members of that family is in purgatory waiting for the day that Dracula is slayed.


Anna Valerious played by (Kate Beckinsale) is the last remaining member of the bloodline and if she doesnt kill Dracula then all of her family will be condemned in purgatory for all of eternity, thats where Vanhelsing comes in and ventures of on a quest to kill the night.
