A group of thieves breaks into a chamber expecting to find paintings, but instead they release the count himself, who travels to New Orleans to find his nemesis' daughter, Mary Van Helsing.
The metal letters hanging on the wall at the top of the stairs in Mary's house are L R U C E, which could spell "CRUEL".
You gettin' the crash? You gettin' the sunset? You gettin' the tits?
J.T.: Yeah, well, it's the talent that matters, Val.
Valerie Sharp: And don't you forget it.
Van Helsing's office building is in London, but the Security Guards on duty are armed. Security guards in England do not, and cannot, carry guns. Handguns are illegal in the UK and private citizens, even security guards, cannot even possess handguns, much less can they carry them about. Handguns can only be carried by the armed forces and by specially trained police officers (and even then it is rare to see even an armed police officer).
As the credits roll, interspersed in the words, are coloured pictures of things important to the movie's premise, including a row of teeth, a bat, and a cross. These pictures are seen both on the left and right sides.
