Wow. I've been reading reviews from on-line friends, and everyone has hated it. Several are proclaiming it the worst movie ever. Here's a quote from one of them: "I am forgiving of bad movies. But now I face a dilemma: if I gnaw my hands off, I won't be able to gouge my eyes out with rusty spoons for willingly watching Van Helsing. But if I gouge my eyes out first, I may not be able to see to gnaw to bloody stumps the hands that willingly paid money to see it. And I cannot even try to crash my head against the wall like a rotten egg, for I might merely induce amnesia and go back to see that wreckage again, which would be worse than hamster-wheeling on the great wheel of rebirth. Oh, the terror of it all!" Now I'm beginning to wonder if I want to see it.
