In 1939, young Professor Bruttenholm destroyed Erzsebet Ondrushko, a female vampire who bathed in the blood of innocents to stay young. Now someone in upstate New York is trying to bring her back, and the elderly Professor Broom has decided to investigate it himself. He takes the top BPRD agents, Hellboy, Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien, who are more worried about his welfare than the return of any vampire. Their tune changes when they face a horde of ghosts, a phantom wolf pack, witches, harpies, a giant werewolf and Erzsebet herself. Hellboy ends up battling the Queen of Witches, the goddess Hecate, who wants him to embrace his true destiny, a destiny that includes the destruction of mankind. Written by IDT

Did You Know?


The villainess is based on Countess Erzsébet Báthory (Elizabeth Bathory in English) of Transylvania, who reportedly had 300 young serving women put to death in a human sacrifice cult in the early 1600s. See more »


The goddess Hecate can be pronounced either 'heck-a-tee' or 'heck-ate'. The latter is used here. It probably originated among actors performing William Shakespeare plays (which often listed the Roman deities), when they saw the word in print and used their own judgment when speaking it. These mispronunciations then became standard Shakespearean theater convention, and have crossed from pop culture to the common language whenever ancient figures are discussed. Honored Shakespearean performers continue to pronounce Jacques and Marseilles as "Jakies" and "Marsellus" in the context of the play, and use the "ay" sound (rather than the classical "ah") for the a's in Cleopatra and Coriolanus, the latter being especially giggle-worthy.

A definite improvement.

After being a little disappointed with Sword of Storms, Blood and Iron makes up for it with a darker story, better voice acting, and a far less irritating music score. The movie begins with Hellboy beating down a monster, which is kinda what he does, and getting the crap beaten out of him while it happens, which is also kinda what he does. Afterwards, we're treated to a surprisingly layered story involving Trevor Bruttenholm, Hellboy's "father" essentially, an old vampire, and the witch-goddess Hecate. Caught in the middle is this old priest who lost his faith, which gives the story a good grounding that Sword of Storms lacked. It's much less of a "Let's kill the bad monster" story, and brings a very human element to the equation. The story also leaves out the ham-handed character development seen in Sword of Storms, for a much grittier, more subtle, and believable portrayal. My main criticism would be the inclusion of the "human metal detector" guy. He's not particularly helpful or necessary to the story. He actually serves to water down some scenes that were building real suspense. They also could have done a better job setting up Hecate as a character. She comes off as another monster, but her motivations don't quite work for me. Overall, I think Blood and Iron is a step in the right direction, and worth seeing at least once. It's a must-see for fans of the comic book, and anyone disappointed with the live action movie.
