In the late 19th century, Dr. Gabriel Van Helsing is known throughout Europe as an infamous monster killer. He works for the Vatican to quietly eradicate evil creatures, but somehow his violent exploits always end up becoming very public. Though he has no memory of his past, he is highly skilled and dedicated to his mission.

Van Helsing's latest assignment is to kill Count Vladislaus Dracula, a vampire living in Transylvania. He is to team up with Anna Valerious, the last of a long line of gypsy monster killers dedicated to killing Dracula and his three vampire brides.


When Van Helsing arrives in Transylvania, he finds that he's facing more than he bargained for. Not only must he and Anna battle Dracula's brides, but his werewolf servant as well. The two also discover that Dracula has an insidious plan to unleash a new horror upon the world. It just so happens that Frankenstein's monster, thought destroyed long ago, is the key to making it happen. With Anna and his friar sidekick Carl in tow, Van Helsing heads into battle once again.
