* SkyFace: At the end, Anna's face appears in the sky, along with her brother's and hints of other people (presumably their ancestors, those "nine generations of the Valerious" the cardinal mentioned early in the film). This is a visual cue that the Valerious family souls have all been saved from Purgatory.



* StandardFemaleGrabArea: Anna is repeatedly grabbed by the Vampire brides by the arm, or held by Dracula effortlessly. In theory it should be that they're so incredibly strong she can't resist, but she clearly isn't even ''trying'' to pull free, just whimpering a little.

Van Helsing and Friar Carl are sent to Transylvania to help the last of the Valerious family, Anna and her brother Velkan, destroy Dracula -- because if they don't, several generations of the family will never get to heaven, because for no apparent reason, God is just that kind of asshole this time around.

Once there, Van Helsing finds himself facing down [[MonsterMash Dracula and his brides, werewolf slaves, and even Frankenstein's creation]] in the course of his mission -- and discovering a few secrets about his own past, with plenty of Franchise/UniversalHorror[=/=]Film/HammerHorror [[ShoutOut Shout-Outs]] along the way.

** Mr. Hyde's depiction as an Comicbook/IncredibleHulk-sized brute is taken from the comic series ''ComicBook/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'', which got [[Film/TheLeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen a movie version]] a year before this. In the [[Literature/TheStrangeCaseOfDoctorJekyllAndMrHyde original novel]], Mr. Hyde was ''smaller'' than Dr. Jekyll (explained in the comic).
