Universal's last Van Helsing movie left us over-emoting in disgust like Dracula's brides. Still, the franchise is very much a no-brainer and as such they're taking another - ambitious - crack at it!
The last time Universal took a crack at making a Van Helsing flick, things went sour, then silly, then abysmal. Given that they've seen the error of their ways, they've actively been searching for a new director to point them in the right direction. That being said...
There's no doubt about it: The last time Universal took a crack at making a Van Helsing flick, they completely dropped the ball. While the monsters were kind of cool, everything else... well... sucked. Good thing they're headed back to the drawing board.
