Anchor Bay Gives Stan Helsing Theatrical Run


Horror spoof booked for one-week engagements

Anchor Bay Entertainment have announced a one-week theatrical run for their horror parody Stan Helsing, beginning Friday, October 23rd. (The DVD drops on October 27th.)

Written and directed by Bo Zenga, the executive producer of Scary Movie, Stan Helsing follows the misadventures of hapless video store clerk Stan Helsing (Steve Howey) and his friends one unfortunate Halloween night when they find themselves stranded in the mysterious residential development of Stormy Night Estates. There, Stan learns of his true destiny as a descendant of the legendary monster-hunter Van Helsing.

With his motley band in tow – including his best friend Teddy (“Saturday Night Live” star Kenan Thompson) – he will battle true evil in the form of parodies of movie monster icons “Freddy,” “Jason,” “Leatherface,” “Pinhead,” “Michael Myers,” and “Chucky.” In addition to riotously sending up some of the cinema’s greatest scream meisters, Stan Helsing also features the appearance of comedy film legend Leslie Nielsen (Airplane!, the Naked Gun films, Scary Movie 3 and 4) as well as a surprise cameo that will frighten the Republican Party!

Below’s a listing of theaters that will be playing Stan Helsing starting October 23rd:

New York – Village East Cinemas

Los Angeles – Mann’s Chinese 6 Theaters

Vancouver — Tinseltown Theaters

Toronto — Bloor Cinema

Ottawa — Mayfair Theater
