Ready for the Van Helsing Collector’s Edition?

Van Helsing: The Collector's Edition (click to see it bigger!)How many horror fans have stayed awake all night wondering when a Collector’s Edition of Universal’s Van Helsing would be available. Would they again get to see vampires fly around in daylight? Couches that can kill Kate Beckinsale? Beloved monsters getting the bastard treatment? Plenty of plot holes to trash even the most hardened drinking game veteran?

Don’t you worry, kids; Universal is going to give you what you want!

DVD Active got ahold of the new artwork and specs for Van Helsing‘s Collector’s Edition, which will be in stores July 8th. The thought of this film actually getting such a release seems odd and a few weeks too late to be an April Fool’s joke, but here it is … packed with many special features:

  • Commentary with director Stephen Sommers and editor/producer Bob Ducsay
  • Commentary with Richard Roxburgh, Shuler Hensley and Will Kemp
  • Bringing the Monster to Life featurette
  • You are in the Movie! featurette
  • The Legend of Van Helsing featurette
  • Explore Frankenstein’s Lab featurette
  • Dracula’s Lair is Transformed featurette
  • The Music of Van Helsing featurette
  • Dracula featurette
  • Frankenstein’s Monster featurette
  • The Werewolves featurette
  • The Women of Van Helsing: Anna & Dracula’s Brides featurette
  • Trailers
  • TV Spots
  • Blooper Reel

    Then again, it does make sense to release all this now with The Wolf Man kind of around the corner. Hell, Universal Studios Florida still has many of the flick’s props decorating the walls at the special effects attraction. Boy, do they try to sell you on the movie at that one…

    1. Oh, if only this movie had the comedic timing and style of a My Way Entertainment production. Someone get Randy Hayes on the line and we’ll see if he’ll do a special dub of the film for a Splattrax.

    2. Oh Snap, I can’t wait for this pice of cinematic fried gold to be on my dvd shelf. This movie will fuck us all in the ear and blow our brains out because it’s the goddamned Juggernaut. It’ll brake us in half.

    3. I’d rather buy National Lampoon’s Cougar Club Special Cougars On The Loose Unrated Super Edition With Commentary From All Of The Cougars that this hunk of shit.

    5. Wasn’t there already a super-duper deluxe edition of this crap-fest? it was grey and had a steak on the cover. has steven sommers done anything since this? i think its been long enough that he should be able to show his face in public again.

    6. Gold Gift Wrapping on Dog Crap.

      Brilliant.

      And yet so many incredible movies out there that aren’t on DVD yet.

      Obscene.
