Van Helsing attacks vampires. Vampires attack Van Helsing. That pretty much summarizes "Way of the Vampire".

Van Helsing tracks his prey to Los Angeles. It's always L.A. Vampires love the coast. Van Helsing forms a crew of slayers from various church volunteers. He tells them all about the Way of the Vampire and his long history with them. The main vampire plots to rid himself of his arch foe in between hanging out on a couch with three naked chicks and drinking a lot of blood.

There's nothing too shocking or interesting in "Way of the Vampire". It hums along exactly as you would expect it to. It won't cause you pain but it probably won't thrill you much either. Also, the sound quality was terrible. I was blasting the TV to hear the dialogue but all I could pick up was the faintest hint of it. The sound effects were loud and clear but the dialog was buried. I doubt I missed much but it would have been nice to hear what people were saying without destroying my eardrums in the process.

SCORE: 1.5 out of 4 hard to hear Van Helsings
