  • This creature feature is exhilarating fun, a richly designed and often quite funny re-exploration of the movie past. show more

  • Instead of paying homage to these creepy creatures of bygone Hollywood, Sommers seems to be unwittingly lampooning them. The first few minutes of Van Helsing, shot in black and white, look like outtakes from Mel Brooks' gagfest "Young Frankenstein." show more

  • Nothing's alive in this trash-heap travesty of warm-weather entertainment, despite the frenetic pace.
