Van Helsing

When Carl makes the discovery that a werewolf is the only thing that can kill Dracula, he and Anna set off in Dracula's castle to find the cure to remove the curse. Van Helsing, after being bitten by Velkan, (Anna's now dead werewolf brother) goes to search for Dracula. Only minutes before midnight, Van Helsing insructs Carl to kill him if he is not cured by the twelfth stroke of midnight. After freeing Frankenstein's monster, Van Helsing manages to find Dracula. On the first stroke of midnight, Van Helsing transforms into a werewolf while Dracula transforms into a winged demon. In a long, climactic fight, Van Helsing gets the upperhand and kills Dracula. Anna, desperate to save Van Helsing, tries to administer the antidote, but Van Helsing accidentally kills her while still a werewolf after he's gotten the cure. He cremates Anna while the Frankenstien Monster escapes on a raft and paddles out to sea. Now, Anna's family that has been tormented for generations is now at peace in heaven.


Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the movie, in the scene where Anna is taking the werewolf cure to Van Helsing and the vampire bride stops her on the large fallen pillar, she falls so she is in a sitting position with the cure in her left hand. She then switches it to her right. Then in the close-up shot, the cure is still in her left hand and she switches it again. (01:49:50)

Trivia: When Van Helsing is fighting Dracula towards the end as a werewolf, he stops to get out his claws. This is an obvious reference to Wolverine, whom Hugh Jackman played in both "X-Men" movies.
