KBT re-Presents: Van Helsing

A successful showing of Infernal Affairs last Tuesday marks the return of KBT!

In an attempt to mock my KBT Screenings of arty or foreign films, my wife has taken over the cinema to show Van Helsing. She knows how much I despise Stephen Sommers (The Mummy, The Mummy Returns). She also knows way more people will probably turn out for this than the movie I was going to screen, Guy Maddin's The Saddest Music In the World. C'est la vie.

Want some halloween cheese? Please show up at 8:20pm on Tuesday for a pre-screening drink and some pumpkin pie and Van Helsing.

For those who missed the deluge of marketing and product tie-ins in May: Van Helsing is sort of a League of Extraordinary Monsters (Well, the ones that are owned in Universal Studio's copyright portfolio). They are taken on by Bram Stoker's distinguished Doctor of pathology, Van Helsing, in a deluge of CGI and themepark violence. LJ saw it in the theatres and loved it, and takes a certain delight in inflicting a third (!) Stephen Sommers film on me.
