Syfy’s New ‘Van Helsing’ Series is Looking a Lot Like ‘Blade’


While Universal's new Van Helsing film project seems to be taking cues from Mad Max, Syfy's small-screen version seems to be taking its inspiration from Blade. Take a look at the first teaser for the series starring Kelly Overton as the gender-swapped vampire hunter.

You may remember Overton from her time playing, funny enough, a werewolf on True Blood. This new series is from the producers of Fargo and Hell on Wheels with Neil LaBute as its showrunner. Now, why am I thinking Blade? Well that character has a very unique place in vampire lore, being a vampire-human hybrid. This new Van, aka Vanessa, Helsing is also unique.

The story is too old to be commented.

I watched the first episode and it was interesting. I think I'll give it a chance for a few more and see if it gets better.
