Editorial Reviews

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?!?

4.0 out of 5 stars I thought it was hilarious July 16, 2011
Format:DVD
Stan Helsing is a very funny horror comedy spoof, and I don't really understand why a majority of reviewers obviously don't care for it. Yes, it's stupid - but that goes without saying; and, yes, the ending is extremely stupid, but that doesn't take away from all of the good bits leading up to it. I'll take Stan Helsing over any of the brain-dead Scare Movie sequels any day of the week. Stan "It's Stan, not Van" Helsing (Steve Howey) is one of the most likeable underachieving slackers you're likely to run across, his buddy Teddy (Kenan Thompson) is hilarious, and his ex-girlfriend Nadine (Diora Baird) is just plain hot.

It's Halloween, and video store clerk Stan has to drop off some videos at his boss's mother's house before he, Nadine, Teddy, and Teddy's girl Mia (Desi Lydic) - an exotic dancer turned masseuse - can go to the big Halloween party. Along the way, they encounter one crazy, oftentimes dangerous, and consistently comical obstacle after another. Eventually, they find themselves trapped in Stormy Night Estates, where Stan discovers that he is expected to save the town from the menace of six monsters: Lucky (Chucky), Mason (Jason), Fweddy (Freddy Krueger), Pleatherface (Leatherface), Needlehead (Pinhead), and Michael Criers (Michael Meyers). It turns out that there's some Van Helsing in him, after all.

Interestingly enough, Ken Kirzinger (who played Jason Voorhees in Jason vs. Freddy) plays the part of Mason. You also have Leslie Nielsen playing the part of a waitress, which certainly doesn't take anything away from the comedy of the story. A number of movies are, of course, mocked along the way, and I think the whole concept works quite well. I laughed out loud several times over the course of this movie. I know a lot of people are putting Stan Helsing on their lists of the worst movies ever made, but I hope those who haven't seen it yet will give it a chance. I think it's hilarious.

4.0 out of 5 stars stan helsing March 25, 2011
By angel
Format:Blu-ray
I believe that this movie was actually entertaining. I took it for what it was and you notice that just by off the cover art of the movie. it was fun and its great to watch with friends if your just looking for some laughs without having a story that has twist and turns to confuse you. i recommend this movie and believe that its worth every penny. Its cheesy and filled with hilarious punch lines that you could joke around with your friends later.

1.0 out of 5 stars Even with rock-bottom expectations, I was disappointed October 21, 2009
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The only things going for this self-proclaimed horror film parody are decent production values and attractive actresses. The movie itself, which is not really a parody of anything but just a limp comedy, is dumb and often dull. The attempts at humor are usually mean-spirited, too, and usually made at the expense of the female characters (who the producers apparently want us to look at but not respect).

Look, to carry over the vulgar parlance of the movie, I'm usually an easy lay with this sort of dumb comedy: I don't need or expect Shakespeare. Just keep things minimally engaging, throw a few chuckles my way, and I'll likely give it three stars and recommend it for some modest home entertainment. Nothing wrong with something silly and fun, after all. But "Stan Helsing" is just boring (the supreme sin of a creative work, in my book) and eye-rollingly stupid. I'm guessing that comedy icon Leslie Nielsen is thankful he was only subjected to a fairly small role in this production.

I'm sorry to say all this, as the actors and folks behind the camera seem like perfectly nice people in the 10-minute "making of" bonus feature (though the script makes me wonder about writer/director Bo Zenda), but I have to call it like I see it. In the end, if you're looking for a fun little horror comedy to get you in the mood for Halloween, let me quote one of Mr. Nielsen's much better comedies and say, "Nothing to see here, move along, nothing to see here..."

Good funny Halloween movie, cleverly blends all of the classic horror movie icons such as Michael Myers, Jason, Freddy, Chucky, Leatherface and Pinhead and makes fun of them in a humorous way. Great entertaining movie

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Movie! Amazing Cast! November 27, 2011
Format:Blu-ray
Stan Helsing is probably one of the greatest spoof movies out there! It's definitely my kind of film, and isn't as bad as some of the reviews say it is...the production value is great, not one of those crappy home video looking films, and the cast is phenomenal. It's my go to movie when there is nothing else to watch, and definitely, check out the commentary because its really good. Don't hate on this movie! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very underrated comedy movie April 29, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie has it all hot chicks and funny guys. I love this movie its hilarious and throws some funny jokes in it. It makes fun of all the horror icons from the 80's and 70's. Hot naked chicks in this movie too, which is a plus. The cast of the movie was great, I love Steve Howey as Stan Helsing because he was funny. I grew up watching Kenan Thompson in all that and all the tv shows he is also hilarious in this movie. Who ever did Diora Baird's makeup and hair for this movie deserves an award because she looks freaking fantastic looking in this movie.

Not worth a view in my opinion ... hardly worth the time I'm spending writing this bummer of a review. My suggestion is that the actors and directors keep their other day job.

2.0 out of 5 stars Leslie Nielsen in top form as others try to follow his lead.
It is Halloween; this is the time one should be watching “It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” (1966) or at worst “Arsenic and Old Lace” (1944). Read more
