Storyline

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

Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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.

Could be more, but still fun to watch.
19 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In the end, the main thrust of the story is largely dealt with by Professor Broom while the rest of his team fights off the other evils in the area. Hellboy himself gets a much more spectacular fight, but it is with a monster that almost seems added as an afterthought when they realized they didn't have enough for him to do.

Taking that into account, though, the story is fun enough to watch and Ron Perlman's wry delivery of Hellboy's lines is always fun. There is nobody who could give life to this character other than Perlman.

The animation is well done and the story moves along with efficient pacing. One thing that could prove confusing to some (though I found it an intriguing story device) is the use of flashback in this episode. The main story moves forward, but the flashbacks move progressively backward. It has the effect of putting both a beginning and an end at both the beginning and the end of the movie.
