    FOUND! Painted World of Ariamis in Van Helsing Film (2004)

    Post by kiwi_commander on Mon Apr 09, 2012 12:43 am

    So after some good Dark Souls play I decided to chill out a bit and see what was on the movie channels. I notice that they are giving Van Helsing. Near the end of the movie, Van Helsing and company open the portal to Dracula's Domain... I jumped from my couch and yelled "OMG, Dracula Lives in the Painted World of Ariamis." Then I continued making Dark Souls connections.

    1. Igor: King Jeremiah or Knight before Priscilla as he defends the bridge
    2. Dracula's Wives: Harpies
    3. Dracula's Helpers: Infected Undead
    4. Van Helsing (host)
    5. Van Helsing's Party: Jolly Cooperation
    6. Werewolf Vaccine: Red Soap Stone
    7. Dracula: World Boss, in this case Priscilla. Both share life hunt lol. Only that Priscilla is so cute.
    8. Portal to Dracula's Domain: Ariamis' Painting
    9. Missing Peace of Transylvania Map: Peculiar Doll

    Good thing there were no Wheel Skeletons in the movie. Van Helsing would have just said "screw this BS"

    I might have to looksee but since I didn't like that movie really maybe not. Good eye though. That's the stuff we lore hounds live for

    I see a lot of this. I was watching Tale of Despereaux with my daughter and half the film seemed lifted from DkS (or vice versa). The knights, the dungeons and sewers, even a big library that looks like the duke's archives. Probably been playing too much, heh.

    You know you may actually have something there, I felt a Dracula reference in the painted world when I saw all those impaled corpses on high poles (near where Jerimiah invades), because the 'real' Dracula, AKA Vlad the Impaler, really enjoyed having people impaled like that.

    oddly enough I was in Auckland a few months ago and bought Van Helsing and knew Dracula's Castle looked familiar though I couldnt put my finger on it....

    Nice !
