Way of the Vampire – aka Bram Stoker’s Way of the Vampire – is a 2005 American horror film directed by Sarah Nean Bruce and Eduardo Durão from a screenplay Karrie Melendrez, Michael David Stewart and Sherri Strain. It stars Rhett Giles, Andreas Beckett and Paul Logan.

Plot:

Dr. Abraham Van Helsing is granted immortality by the Catholic Church until he can hunt down the last vampire prince…

Reviews:

” …clearly intended to cash in on Stephen Sommers’ 2004 big-budget spectacular, Van Helsing, which in itself isn’t a particularly memorable film. Compared to this stinker, though, Van Helsing looks like one of the Universal classics it was trying to emulate. A poorly acted, horribly paced mess of a movie…” Dave Becker, 2,500 Movies Challenge

“All in all, the movie is just what it is: a low-budget effort at joining the league of the Blade movies. It fails, but I give it points for trying. It’s a reasonably entertaining and not altogether poorly made movie.” Absolute Horror

“Through everything, the entertainment was minimal, and I truly was bored. This has to be the longest eighty minutes of my life. The acting is horrible, the plot is cliché, the film is boring, the audio is indiscernible, and everything else really does add up to one really bad mess of a vampire movie.” Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed

” …it tries too hard to be arty (both in filming and dialogue) only for it to come across as overly stale at times. Plus the low-budget is obvious at times during the low-scale action sequences, lack of vampire battles (and when they do come there’s some weak second rate kung-fu)…” Chris Hartley, The Video Graveyard
