Van Helsing obviously wants to be The Walking Dead with vampires, but it lacks that show's production values, cast and over-the-top imagination.

The performances of Overton and Scarfe are absolutely a good reason to tune in to Van Helsing. The two of them make each of their characters relatable, despite some superpowers and the insane situations they find themselves in.

Van Helsing has an interesting enough setup, if it would only capitalize on some action.

Grim bloody vampire apocalypse show is not fun enough.

I'm hoping that changes in the future as the show begins to develop more of its own personality, but the tried-and-true technique will suffice for now.

It, too, gets off to a slow start, but Van Helsing picks up in the second episode. It is also super violent and super gory. If you like that sort of thing, you might want to give this a chance.

Audience Reviews for Van Helsing: Season 1


The premise is pretty ridiculous. Volcanoes blocked direct sunlight from the sky so vampires roam free, there's a special woman called Vanessa Helsing who could be the key to save mankind. It was wholly predictable with formulaic horror film tropes, it failed to impress even with its many (attempted) intrigues.
