November 28, 2018
This atrocious excuse for a horror spoof makes [Friedberg and Seltzer's] slavish, cheap-ass parodies look like high-minded cultural commentaries.

Mow your lawn, go swimming, play videogames or get a flu shot instead - at least then your mind will be more engaged and you'll stay healthy and active.

A darkly humorous horror comedy that fails to re-ignite the spark that made Scary Movie so much fun.

[Director] Zenga really seems to be enamored with the genre he's satirizing embedding these gags in to the scripts instead of just tossing them at us waiting for us to laugh...

In other words, you have to be a teenaged male or totally baked to appreciate this movie. Probably both.

There's a chance that an image of the Virgin Mary might emerge from the vomit puddle of day-old gastric remnants from Taco Bell, which would make it an Oscar contender compared to what's on the screen in Stan Helsing.

Like garlic, holy water and silver bullets for our mythic evildoers, Stan Helsing is a surefire repellent to any good time.

Its target audience is without question people who are just looking for a mindless good time and horny teenagers who find fart jokes to be the epitome of humor.

At least the Scary Movie features had a budget and filmmakers with some genre battle scars. Stan Helsing is more Friedberg/Seltzer territory: random, agonizingly desperate, and dripping with laziness.

Puerile, yes, but rooted sincerely in character, this well cast comedy lampoons contemporary film audiences' familiarity with the horror genre without ever stooping to senselessly overloaded referential gags.

If Stan does nothing else, it should at least get its four leads some attention.

If there's one thing of which the cinematic world doesn't need more, it's horror movie spoofs.

How low can the genre-spoof genre go?

This might be the cheapest-looking production of the year.

How do you make fun of boredom without being boring? Well, that's a tall task requiring lots of smarts and even more artistry.

By the time we reach the climactic karaoke smackdown, we have learned more about Freddy Krueger(TM)s personal hygiene challenges -- and how to make a shockingly bad movie -- than we ever wanted to know.

To its credit, Stan Helsing is no less funny than the studio comedy Couples Retreat, meaning that even marquee comedians like Vince Vaughn couldn't save this film.
October 23, 2009
Mostly the gags are unfortunate and amateurish, but this micro-budget flick at least has a semi-coherent plot and every 10 minutes or so there's a flash of wit.

Concocting a Halloween season brew of grossout and gentle gore, Stan Helsing doesn't let its derivative horror get in the way of over the top humor served up spicy and raw.
