Storyline

When his fiancée Lucy falls victim to a mysterious illness, Arthur Holmwood turns to a former rival in her affections - Dr John Seward - for help. Seward calls in his mentor, Professor Van Helsing, who quickly uncovers the terrifying truth; the "illness" that afflicts Lucy is in fact a vampire's curse, and the only cure is a fresh supply of human blood. The discovery of several bodies - each drained of their blood - forces Van Helsing and Seward into a race against time to destroy the curse once and for all. Written by Creativ Studios

The tale of Dracula from Abraham Van Helsing's point of view...
11 April 2021 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Well, while the 2021 movie "Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" from writer and director Steve Lawson wasn't as bad as I had believed and feared it to be, then it should be said that the movie does suffer from it being a story that has been told so many times before that it is starting to lose its appeal in a new presentation.

"Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" provided me with somewhat adequate entertainment. Sure, the storyline is one that is rather familiar to me already, but it should be said that the atmosphere of the movie and the acting in the movie actually helped make it watchable.

Now, this 2021 movie "Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" is by no means revolutionary, nor is it a movie that was particularly necessary, as the story of "Dracula" has been told many times before. But "Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" takes the story and presents it from Abraham Van Helsing's point of view, and thus effectively putting Dracula out of the equation, for better or worse.

"Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" suffers from its pacing. The storytelling is somewhat monotonous and tedious at times, which makes for a somewhat prolonged viewing experience. And that is the main reason why my rating of "Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" fell below average.

While watchable, "Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" is hardly an outstanding movie, nor is it a movie that you'll watch more than once. Now, it wasn't a bad or poor movie, but it just didn't have enough punch to turn it into a remarkable movie experience.

My rating of "Bram Stoker's Van Helsing" lands on a four out of ten stars.
