In Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron:
When Hellboy, Liz Sherman, and Abe Sapien are assigned to investigate the ghost-infested mansion of a publicity-hound billionaire, they uncover a plot to resurrect a beautiful yet monstrous vampire from Professor Bruttenholm’s past. But before they can stop her bloodbath, Hellboy will have to battle harpies, hellhounds, a giant werewolf, and even the ferocious goddess Hecate herself. How much crap does a guy have to take from a Hungarian Blood Countess before he and his surrogate father can avenge the souls of the damned? It’s going to take more than just a horde of very pissed-off demons for our heroes to see the light in this animated adventure from creative producers Guillermo Del Toro and Mike Mignola.
These films were previously released in 2006 and 2007. Best of all, they feature the vocal talents of Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy stars, Ron Perlman and Doug Jones. Hellboy is the brainchild of writer/artist Mike Mignola. Check out the special features and trailers below.
