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

After the end credits, a short self-referential teaser for the next Hellboy Animated project is played. The working title for this, subsequently canceled, third Hellboy Animated entry was The Phantom Claw and it was suppose to feature The Lobster, a popular spin-off character from the Hellboy comics. In the comics, The Lobster aka Lobster Johnson is a violent, deadly and mysterious vigilante who operated during the 1930s fighting gangsters as well as supernatural threats. In the present day Hellboy timeline, the legend of The Lobster has gained popularity and even cult status thanks to the writings of a retired police detective, but the reading public doesn't know that his literary character is based on a real person.

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.
