    I would rather see Van Helsing go up against a Werewolf or something else besides Dracula. The title character did more than hunt vampires for a living, but MW needs to know one thing.

    A vampire slayer is a female, as a vampire hunter is a male.

            @skywise Dude! I just watched Ladyhawke the other day. Great cast in that. Broderick was funny, always talking to himself, Pfeiffer is always hot, and Hauer kicks ass as usual. The Alan Parsons Project music cracks me up, too, contemporary music put with that time period :P

              Dario Argento has always been hit or miss for me but growing up i watched a LOT of his films and some of them are down right unnerving. Argento and Hauer are reason enough to see this.

              Forget all that Twilight nonsense, thats for your younger siblings or girlfriend or whatever. MY vamps are the ones that turn to dust when the sunlilght touches them instead of sparkling.

                Rutger Hauer is the man! I recently watched 2 awesome 80's movie starring the man himself. Ladyhawke and Felsh + Bone. He is fantastic in both and plays polar opposites altho they are both medeivel movies.

                    Vampires and 3D, I really hope Justin Beiber is in it so I can really hate and ignore it.

                    Seriously though, I think Rutger Hauer would be a great Van Helsing but they'd need Dracula to be...Who?

                            Rutger Hauer alone makes me want to see this.

                              Every single vampire film in the last 10 years have been terrible to me so this is a pass.

                                I'm getting quite vampired out myself. I'll see the Underworld: New Dawn because they're bringing back Kate Beckinsale, but after that, I think I'm gonna ignore that genre for some time.
