Martial Arts Vampires Take On Cushing, 10 August 2003
Author: jcholguin (jcholguin@lycos.com) from los angeles

Peter Cushing is my favorite Van Helsing and in this film it is a totally welcomed change of just battling the evil Dracula. Van Helsing takes on the Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires that are martial arts experts whom also have the power of calling up dead victims to fight the undead. A number of very exciting battles against the dead makes this film a classic vampire feature. The Hammer producers also weave into the film the king of vampires, the Count himself, Dracula. The makeup is rather swallow at times but the story and action make you forget the small problems. Cushing still swings a deadly fiery weapon as he battles to the death the unliving.
