review by . October 23, 2009
I've never been a huge fan of spoof films. Classic spoofs such as "Airplane" and "Spaceballs" give the audience a reasonable plot to follow that's filled with gags and potshots at the films they are spoofing. Most of the recent ones (the numerous "Scary Movie" flicks, "Epic Movie," "Date Movie," etc.) all fail miserably at this, usually throwing away the plot all together and chaining unfunny gag after unfunny gag from title sequence to closing credits.     Such is the case with …

About this movie

Wiki

In the vein of spoof cinema like Austin Powers and the Scary Movie franchise, Stan Helsing lampoons contemporary film audiences’ never-ending fascination with what makes our blood curdle. In the story, hapless video store clerk Stan Helsing (Steve Howey) and his friends must make a routine video delivery on Halloween night before going to a Halloween party. But when a chain of seemingly random mishaps strand Stan and the gang in Stormy Night Estates, Stan learns of his true destiny as a descendant of the legendary monster-hunter Van Helsing. With his motley band in tow – including his best friend Teddy (“Saturday Night Live” star Kenan Thompson), he will battle evil in the form of parodies of movie monster icons “Freddy,” “Jason,” “Leatherface,” “Pinhead,” “Michael Myers,” and “Chucky”! The ultimate confrontation between good and evil will require immeasurable courage, grim determination – and a flair for karaoke?!?
