Editorial Reviews

United Kingdom released, Blu-Ray/Region A/B/C : it WILL NOT play on regular DVD player. You need Blu-Ray DVD player to view this Blu-Ray DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), WIDESCREEN (1.78:1), SPECIAL FEATURES: Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: Luke Rutherford (Christian Cooke) is leading the normal, somewhat boring life of any London teenager, when an incredible revelation about his ancestry rocks his world. His late father's best friend, Rupert Galvin (Philip Glenister, LIFE ON MARS), travels all the way from America to reveal to the oblivious teenager that he is the last descendant of Abraham Van Helsing, the famous vampire-werewolf-and anything-in-between slayer. Rupert offers to train Luke for his new duty, and demonstrates a certain expertise in getting rid of evil creatures... being an accomplished demon-hunter himself. Another fundamental aid to the youngster's supernatural new mission comes from none other than Mina Harker (Zoe Tapper, SURVIVORS), a good-hearted, blind, piano virtuoso vampire, once romantically linked to Dracula. To complete this unusual squad comes Ruby, Luke's clever and enamoured best friend. Will Luke be up to the demanding role of World's new defender against evil? ...Demons - Season 1 ( The Last Van Helsing (Demons - Season One) )

4.0 out of 5 stars Familiar yet oddly endearing June 21, 2010
Format:DVD
I think DEMONS is one of those love-it-or-hate-it type of shows. The premise is interesting enough: A teenage boy learns he is decended from legendary monster-hunter Abraham Van Helsing. He partners up with a friend of his late father's, as well as a woman called. . .Mina Harker? Comparisons to Buffy the Vampire Slayer are inevitable (the trainer role in both shows is guy named Rupert, even), although Demons skews just a bit darker.

The short (six episodes?) first season has more highs than lows, and left this viewer wanting more. The effects are well-done, and the atmosphere is suitably murky. It's not hard to imagine the events in the show taking place in the same universe as, say, Torchwood. If you like a dose of monsters with your action/adventure, you might find it to your liking.

3.0 out of 5 stars At Least It Has Philip Glenister April 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Full disclosure: I will watch Philip Glenister in almost anything. And fair warning: you need to have a multi-region DVD player for this one. The premise of the show is similar to "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" with the nationalities flipped. Here the born-to-fight-demons teenager is English and male (and not very interesting) and his advisor is American - oddly, because he's played by the very British Glenister with a kind of film-noir American growl, or at least that must have been the idea. (The special effects are also iffy by current standards.) Glenister's watchable enough to stick with, accent or no accent, but the creators made a bigger mistake in focusing on the kids (in this case, the hero and his female best friend, who would clearly like to be more) when the adults are far more more interesting. The relationship between Glenister's character and the blind pianist Mina Harker really begged for more and was just getting there - in fact, the entire premise was ratcheting up - when the series came to an abrupt end. Teens and fans of Glenister may find it worth the investment. It isn't dull, merely unoriginal and a bit silly.

4.0 out of 5 stars the male buffy. December 17, 2012
Format:DVD
This was a interesting tv series that never got a second series. And it's a shame as it like a uk version of buffy with a male lead. ALthough the other characters are mainly supernatural or trainers etc. The blu ray looks great but it is a region b blu ray so you need a all region player. This show was on bbc america a few years back as well. It features the lead character a decendant of van helsing out and about fighting demons mainly. A good romp of a show but it just never got a chance. It's less grim by far than 'the fades' another show that never made it past season one either.
