During a time in history when the supernatural still seemed as conceivable as the everyday, when storytellers supplied
imaginative reasons for the unexplained and when mythic creatures still crept by night there was a single figure fighting
against the dwindling mysteries hidden in the encroaching darkness: Van Helsing.
Gabriel Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman) is a man cursed with a past he cannot recall and driven by a mission he cannot deny.
Charged by a secret organization to seek out and defeat evil the world over, his efforts to rid the world of its mightmarish
creatures have been rewarded with the title that now follows him: murderer.
Van Helsing roams the glode an outcast, a fugitive, a loner, himself hunted by those who dont understand the true nature
of his calling.
When dispatched to the shadowy world of Transylvania, Van Helsing finds a land still mired in its past where legendary
creatures of darkness come to life a place ruled over by the evil, seductive and undefeatable vampire, Count Dracula (Richard
Roxburgh) and it is Dracula that Van Helsing has been sent to terminate.
Anna Valerious (Kate Beckinsale) is one of the last of a powerful royal family, now nearly annihilated by dracula. A
fearless hunter in her own right, Anna is bent on avenging her ancestors and ending an ancient curse by the vampire.
Joined by a common foe, Van Helsing and Anna set out to destroy Dracula along with his empire of fear. But in challenging
an enemy who never dies, Van Helsing uncovers a secret he never imagined and comes face-to-face with the unresolved mysteries
of his own enshrouded past.
