Added DiffLines:

** Kate Beckinsale's attempt at a Transylvanian/Romanian accent is absolutely hilarious.
** It's supposed to be a sad moment [[spoiler: but a whacking great image of Anna appearing in the sky after her death is just bizarre.]]

* OneSceneWonder: RobbieColtrane as Mr Hyde. He was even smoking a damn cigar while doing the voice work!

* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The Brides' harpy forms still hold up quite well, pulled off with some state-of-the-art motion capture technique.

*** Just after his realizing Marishka's death is just as hilariously bad as screaming her name: he may as well be fluttering down on little butterfly wings by how overdone and silly a pose he uses.

* SpiritualLicensee: This movie is essentially ''Franchise/{{Castlevania}}'' with automatic crossbows instead of whips. TheReveal that Dracula is really a member of the same Valerious clan that fights him is similar to Dracula being a Belmont in the ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow'' continuity, made later. [[spoiler:''That'' Dracula is even named Gabriel.]]

* WhatAnIdiot: All Dracula has to do to win is FLY AWAY from the last fight (he had plenty of chances to do that). Van Helsing will soon lose his individuality, Dracula will have a legion of his children to support him, game over. To add more insult when Van Helsing turns back to human form briefly Dracula just ''stands there talking'' until Van Helsing gets back his werewolf form and kills him.
** To be fair, he ''does'' try to fly away two times near the start of the fight. [[spoiler: He gets smashed into the floor and has one of his wings mangled by Van Helsing for his troubles.]]

* EnsembleDarkhorse: The Brides. In any other story they'd just be nameless background characters that'd be killed off quickly. Here they're actually deadly minions with distinctive personalities, desires and backstories - well, aside from Marishka, who ''does'' get killed fairly early on - and give the heroes a run for their money. More often then not, they're what people remember most about the movie. Aleera is the EnsembleDarkhorse of the Brides herself. Many fans sought out more of Elena Anaya's films in her native Spain, after being introduced to her through this movie.

** This version of Frankenstein's monster was likewise well received thanks to the actor's portrayal.

* SoCoolItsAwesome:
** [[spoiler:Van Helsing as a werewolf was damned awesome.]]
** Also Frankenstein's atomic heart. Hell, just that ''phrase'' is so cool it's AGoodNameForARockBand.
** The Brides go OneWingedAngel to become harpy-like figures. The shot where Aleera and Verona jump off the balcony and transform just seals the deal.
