oh boy I saw a foreign subtitled movie in 1999 or 2000 that was loosely a Van Helsing theme, but...

the evil creature (just one) was a Preist from the local church attacking the villagers when they went against the "ways" of the church. The villagers called upon a Van Helsing like "good guy" to destroy the creature and thus figured it out to be actually the church. i think 1800's any suggestions?
