Continuity: During the horse carriage chase sequence, Van Helsing is tearing through a narrow canyon with steep rock faces on both sides towering above the roof of the carriage. However, when Van Helsing is shown sitting on the coach-box from the side perspective, forest trees can be seen in the background instead of the rock faces.


Continuity: When Dracula is front of the large mirror in the ballroom, none of the dancers' reflections can be seen because they are vampires. Previously, though, when the camera was pulling in on the dancers, we saw their reflections in a mirror on the left-hand side.


Revealing mistakes: The glass of blood one of the Brides drinks leaves a pulpy residue on the glass - a trait of tomato juice.


Revealing mistakes: The horses fail to react in any manner whatsoever to Van Helsing jumping and crashing into them (caused by real horses and a CGI-produced actor).


Continuity: When Anna is running away from the Wolf Man she is wearing felt shoes but when Velkan pushes her out of the way she is back wearing her high heeled boots.


Revealing mistakes: When the Cardinal and Van Helsing are walking into the lair for the Knights of the Holy order, if you look in the background you can see the a reflection of Cardinal's robes. In order to make the already large set look even bigger, Sommers used an old film technique of using mirrors to make rooms look bigger.


Crew or equipment visible: Van Helsing throws Igor on top of a rock and interrogates him. When he lifts Igor off the rock, you can briefly see several sheets of white paper, stapled or paper-clipped together, on the rock. It's probably a script left there by the actors.


Continuity: When Anna encounters Dracula's bride, Aleera, standing in the doorway, Aleera is wearing both earrings. When Aleera talks to Anna, her right earring is missing. But when Aleera slaps Anna across the face, both earrings are on.


Continuity: When Frankenstein's monster swings down toward the bridge on the wire, he gets caught on a statue on the side of the bridge, and dangle beneath the bridge. Carl pushes the statue off, allowing the monster to complete his swing, and he swings down, below the bridge, and crashes through a window, saving Anna. A few moments later, Anna grabs the same wire, and swings out the window. The window she swings out of is now far above the bridge the monster just swung beneath.


Revealing mistakes: When Anna and Dracula dance in front of the mirror towards the end of the movie her arms (especially the left one) are not reflected correctly.


Continuity: During the Brides' attack on the village, Van Helsing fires his crossbow at them many times, but the number of bolts (arrows) in its "magazine" never seems to decrease. When the crossbow jams, at least half of the bolts have suddenly disappeared.


Audio/visual unsynchronized: The prince screams when he sees his father's corpse in Dracula's lair. His mouth however, does not line up with the sound of the scream.


Continuity: When Anna inspects the weapons room and finds her brother as a werewolf, it is clear that his shirt has already been ripped off of his body during his initial transformation, yet when he is human again, his shirt has reappeared to be ripped off during his next transformation.


Revealing mistakes: Obvious stunt double when Anna jumps through the window with Van Helsing.


Continuity: At the end of the movie, the needle that Anna is carrying changes position repeatedly between shots.


Continuity: When Van Helsing shoots Frankenstein's monster with the dart gun before he's placed in the graveyard, the dart gun is level, and looks like it should hit the monster's left-upper chest area, but in the next shot, the monster falls over with what looks like a dart in the left side of his forehead. Since the monster is much taller than Van Helsing, he would have had to hold the gun much higher to hit that location.


Continuity: After Dracula bites Dr. Frankenstein's neck, he pulls away with blood on his lips and trailing down his mouth. He wipes it away with his hand, but when he lowers the hand, there is clearly no blood on it.


Continuity: The table to which Frankenstein's monster is strapped during the opening scene moves throughout the scene.


Continuity: Dracula drops Frankenstein's body on the right of the fireplace. Frankenstein's monster then picks up the body in front of the fireplace.


Crew or equipment visible: You can see two crew members kneeling down behind the bull, holding it steady.


Continuity: When Van Helsing fights Mr. Hyde in the second scene of the movie, Mr. Hyde steals his hat. Later, Van Helsing takes his hat back. Then, when he is thrown off of the roof, he loses his hat again. When Mr. Hyde falls and the police find him, they look up to the roof to see Van Helsing standing there, putting his hat back on. How did he get it back?


Continuity: Anna's eyes are open while she lies dead, after Van Helsing kills Dracula. When Van Helsing picks up Anna, her eyes are suddenly closed.


Continuity: When Van Helsing and Anna flee Frankenstein's castle, it's full moon. Their trip to Budapest then takes them better part of a month, since by the time they get there, it's only two days to the next full moon. And yet it only takes them a day to get back to Anna's home castle.


Continuity: When Aleera and Verona are about to kill Anna, Aleera says she wants the first bite and then she runs her empty hands through Anna's hair. In the next shot, Aleera tosses the glass (tomato juice.) over her shoulder. She obviously didn't have the glass in her hands the shot before.


Continuity: When Anna "stakes" the last of the brides, you clearly hear her take the stake out of the vampire. In the next shot, however, the stake is back in its heart.


Errors in geography: The map shows the path of the coach heading south of the Carpathian mountains toward Budapest while the city actually lies straight to the west


Errors in geography: Dracula refers to the city "Istanbul". However, that name was not used as an official name of the city until 1923 when the Ottoman Empire collapsed and Turkey took its place. Up until that time, the city was called "Constantinople" and it wasn't until the 1960s when "Istanbul" began showing up on new Western maps. Maps in Greece still refer to the city as "Constantinople".


Crew or equipment visible: Just before the big final battle, Van Helsing stumbles around Dracula's laboratory. As two flaming Dwerger run out of camera view, you can see a cloud of carbon dioxide coming from an off-screen extinguisher to put the flames out (bottom right of the screen). The director and producer revealed this themselves on the DVD's audio commentary.


Errors in geography: At the time the movie takes place Transylvania did not belong to Romania, but to Hungary. It only became part of Romania in 1920.


Miscellaneous: In the final battle between Dracula and Van Helsing, when Van Helsing first begins turning into a werewolf, Dracula says (in a close-up of his face) "No! This cannot be!". During this close up, you can clearly see a contact lens in his right eye.


Continuity: Dracula is seen in several scenes to have all the fingers on his right hand, yet in the final fight with Van Helsing where he reveals the origin of Van Helsing's ring his hand seems to be missing the ring finger. However, in this scene Dracula's thumb also cannot be seen. He is obviously holding his ring finger folded to emphasize his missing ring.


Continuity: In the Masquerade scene, Dracula is set on fire but a shot later he is not burning at all and you see him struggling in the background with a fire that's not there.


Continuity: During the scene where the brides hide from the sun in the village well, Anna slowly gets up. The camera angle shows behind her a few people hiding and a wooden bench. The scene cuts quickly to Van Helsing and back to Anna to reveal a dead body that wasn't on the bench before. As well the dead body's eye can be seen moving while closed.


Continuity: After the windmill collapses and Dracula and the brides land, in all the shots facing away from the windmill there are no villagers in the background even though there was at least a hundred of them seconds earlier with torches.


Continuity: In the scene where Anna and Velkan are fighting the werewolf at the beginning of the film, the werewolf chases Anna towards the cliff edge while Velkan is 'stuck' up a tree. How did Velkan get to the cliff edge to shoot the werewolf before it got there?


Continuity: In the scene where Anna and Van meet Frankenstein's monster, they were soaking wet from the rain. However, when Van stops Anna from shooting the monster, her hair is curly and dry - but Van Helsing's is still soaked.


Plot holes: When Anna and Velkan are fighting the werewolf at the beginning of the movie, there are about a dozen people helping them. Who exactly are these people, and where do they disappear to for the rest of the movie, when Anna could have used more of their help?


Incorrectly regarded as goofs: At one point in the opening, Dr. Frankenstein is packing a trunk. When the scene cuts to the villagers and then back to Dracula and the Doctor, the trunk seems to disappear. It can in fact be briefly seen off to Dr. Frankenstein's left when he and Dracula are looking over the monster. Since it is implied that Dracula and the Doctor had a conversation between shots, they would have had time to move away from the trunk.


Continuity: When Van Helsing's group arrive to the Dracula's Castle there's a freezing blizzard. Bit later, on top of the tower there's rain and thunderstorm.


Revealing mistakes: When Van Helsing bends the metal bars blocking the way to the monster the bars are clearly made of some softer material. This is obvious since they start bending before the effort starts to show on Van Helsing's face.


Plot holes: When leaving Transylvania to take Frankenstein's monster to Rome Anna says to Van Helsing that "nothing is faster than Transylvanian horses, even werewolves". However, much into the journey Anna's brother - a werewolf - catches up with them, as do the brides.


Incorrectly regarded as goofs: In the last scene Van Helsing looks out to sea and sees the sun low on the horizon, as if setting. Then when he is riding away from the sea he is riding towards the sunset. Since the battle with Dracula ended at midnight and it is the next day, the cremation would have been done in the early morning, with the riding scene taking place in the late afternoon. The supposed "ocean sunset" is obviously an "ocean sunrise".


Continuity: Anna holds the syringe at shoulder height when she approaches the wolfed-out Van Helsing, and when he jumps into her you see her hand go over his shoulder. There is no way he he could have been stuck in his lower abdomen with the needle as the scene shows.


Continuity: During the fight scene in the village with the 3 brides, when Van Helsing first mets Anna, Anna is dropped onto a roof by one of the brides. She slides off the roof and flips herself into a tree behind her. When she lands, on her feet even after just getting hit in the back of the legs by a tree branch, she has a bruise on her forehead. Yet she never hit her head during her fall. When she first launches herself into the tree from the roof her head clearly goes to the side of the tree and never hits anything on the way down. How did she hurt her head there?


Continuity: During the scene when Van Helsing and Anna are fighting the vampires in the village, when the sun has just come out, and they hear a noise from the well Anna bends over to pick up her weapon from the ground. As she picks it up it makes a metallic scraping sound even though there shouldn't be anything metal in the ground for it to scrap against.


Revealing mistakes: When Dracula dips Anna in front of the mirror, she sees a reflection of herself alone in an totally empty room. Although vampires don't cast reflections, the furniture should have.


Continuity: The weather and its effects in the Transylvanian village keep changing dramatically. When Van Helsing arrives in the morning, a thin layer of snow dusts the homes and ground. That evening, Velkan breaks into the Valerios home during a rainstorm that comes and goes, concealing and revealing the full moon. As Van Helsing chases him into the village, not only has the rain stopped, but it has started to snow again. The ground is again dry except for the snow, which at least should be melted slush after the rain. Then, after tracking Velkan to the nearby Frankenstein Castle, the rainstorm has started again.


Factual errors: A huge Halloween masquerade ball is held in Budapest in the film. The festival of Halloween is not celebrated in Eastern Europe and never has been. It originated among the Celtic peoples of Ireland and Scotland and was taken to the New World by immigrants.


>>> WARNING: Here Be Spoilers <<<
Goofs below here contain information that may give away important plot points. You may not want to read any further if you've not already seen this title.

Continuity: SPOILER: The two previous brides were killed by a stake through the heart but when Anna stabs Aleera with the stake, it clearly doesn't go through the heart. Also, she dies differently to the other brides; they shriveled and faded away while she exploded instead.
