Van Helsing (2004)
In the late '90s, Universal and director Stephen Sommers resurrected "The Mummy" property with a fun, profitable set of films starring Brendan Fraser, and "Van Helsing" seemed like a natural next step. With Sommers helming, the rest of the studio's famed monsters were lined up to face rising star (Hugh Jackman, hot off the "X-Men" films), with a hot female lead (Kate Beckinsale) in tow. Sounds like a recipe for success, doesn't it? There was only one thing missing -- a script.
