''Van Helsing'' is one of the 10 movies we can't wait to see in early 2004

WHAT IT IS Frankenstein, the Wolf Man, and Count Dracula all in the same movie, being chased by the monster masher Van Helsing (Hugh Jackman, pictured with Kate Beckinsale)

WHY WE CAN'T WAIT It's about time Mr. Van Helsing (a vampire hunter in the ''Dracula'' novel and films) got his due and had a free-for-all with Hollywood's favorite horror archetypes.

BURNING QUESTION Can director Stephen Sommers match the success of his ''Mummy'' franchise?

COME FOR A snarling Jackman in his first lead role

STAY FOR The CGI effects, of course. You were expecting a plot?
