Oh and Solomon Kane looks like it kicks ass. I agree it looks like a better Van Helsing. But it also looks like Van Helsing crossed with Lord of the Rings. Heck, they even have a Nazgul and a Balrog! None the less it looks great. I hope it does not turn out to be sh*t.

Solomon Kane was first published in 1929 while Lord of the Rings didn't hit the shelves till 1937 so if there are any similarities it was Lord that took liberties with Kanes demons....As for Van Helsing while he came out in the 1890's he was primarily a Vampire hunter where Kane is an anti hero that stopped his killing ways only to face the ultimate choice:let the innocent die and keep his vow of non-violence or do what he does best and risk breaking his pact with the reaper. To me nothing like Helsing.

Howard created Kane, Conan, Red Sonya and many other minor characters inspiring Tolken as well as H.P.Lovecraft with some of his horror tales. This movie is gonna kick some major ass and maybe get the studios off their asses to do a Conan movie.
