Stan Helsing (2009) is a horror-comedy film directed by Bo Zenga and starring Steve Howey, Diora Baird, Kenan Thompson, and Desi Lydic. The movie tells the story of Stan Helsing (Steve Howey), a geeky video store clerk who, along with four of his friends, is unwittingly thrust into a supernatural adventure. The group finds themselves facing off against a host of famous movie monsters, including Freddy, Jason, Chucky, Leatherface, and Pinhead.

The movie begins on Halloween night, as Stan and his friends are working in a video store, dressed in various Halloween costumes. When a mysterious woman arrives at the store and rents a strange video, the friends are suddenly transported into the world of the movie. The group soon finds themselves on a wild and dangerous mission to defeat the evil Countess Bathory (Leslie Nielsen) and her army of monsters.

As they journey through the night, the group encounters a series of bizarre and terrifying creatures, each one more deadly than the last. Along the way, they must rely on their wits, their courage, and each other to stay alive. They are joined by Nadine (Diora Baird), an ex-girlfriend of Stan's who proves to be a valuable ally in their quest.

Stan Helsing is a horror-comedy that doesn't take itself too seriously. The film is full of witty one-liners, tongue-in-cheek references to popular horror movies, and over-the-top action scenes. The movie successfully combines horror and comedy in a way that is both entertaining and engaging.

Steve Howey is excellent as Stan, bringing a likable and relatable quality to the character. Diora Baird is also great as Nadine, providing a tough and feisty presence that is a perfect foil for Stan. Kenan Thompson is hilarious in his role as Teddy, delivering some of the movie's funniest lines.

The film boasts a solid supporting cast, including Leslie Nielsen, who brings his trademark deadpan humor to the role of Countess Bathory. The movie also features appearances by some of horror's most iconic villains, including Robert Englund as Freddy Krueger, Ken Kirzinger as Jason Voorhees, and Jenna Jameson as the Bride of Frankenstein.

The special effects in Stan Helsing are impressive, with each monster given its own unique look and feel. The makeup and prosthetics used to create the creatures are top-notch, making them seem genuinely terrifying. The action scenes are well choreographed, with plenty of thrills and spills to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

Overall, Stan Helsing is a fun and enjoyable horror-comedy that is sure to entertain fans of both genres. The movie is a loving tribute to classic horror movies while also providing plenty of laughs and scares in its own right.
