Van Helsing

Bad news. Vampires have taken over Vancouver and they are giving us to Seattle.

If it is not a Vampire Uprising from the South, then it must be Van Helsing. As Hollywood North continues to thrive, this new TV series has replaced Dead Rising 2 in the former Canada Post building downtown.


We will eventually learn on the Syfy Channel that: ‘Vanessa Helsing, distant relative of famous vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing, is resurrected only to find that vampires have taken over the world. She is humanity’s last hope to lead an offensive to take back what has been lost.’

There is a lot of interest in the cast which includes Kelly Overton as Vanessa, along with Jonathan Scarfe, Christopher Heyerdahl, Paul Johansson, David Cubbitt, Tim Guinee and Rukiya Bernard. Van Helsing, the movie, screened in 2004 and starred Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsdale.


We’re told that the TV show will challenge traditional vampire rules. Don’t be fooled. Never leave home without scented bandaids and cover your neck in vervain.
