Dracula 3D

In a world plagued by fashion ad vampires, horror icon Dario Argento is going back to the classic days of movie monsters, and injecting the blood and sex of contemporary society with Dracula 3D. The first trailer and poster for the film have just arrived with King Kong star Thomas Kretschmann playing the title vampire and Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Hobo with a Shotgun) hunting him as Van Helsing. This looks pretty silly and cheap, but that also seems to add to the charm of a film that wouldn't seem out of place in the 80s. At the very least, this has to be more entertaining than anything from The Twilight Saga, right?

Here's the first trailer for Dario Argento's Dracula 3D, originally from Apple:

And here's the poster that harkens back to a classic artistic style:

Dracula 3D

Horror icon Dario Argento (Suspiria, Opera) directs Dracula 3D from a script he wrote with Antonio Tentori, Stefano Piani & Enrique Cerezo. An unsuspecting Englishman arrives in Transylvania, lured by a job with a local nobleman. But the undead Count Dracula's real target is the man's innocent young wife. Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong) plays the infamous Dracula while Rutger Hauter takes the role of vampire hunter Van Helsing and the director's daughter Asia Argento plays a local all-too-eager woman ready to fall under the Count's sway. IFC Midnight sends the film to theaters and iTunes on October 4th.

This looks worse than a middle school dance

I wish somebody would write some really great scripts for old actors like Rutger Hauer to perform before they die. He's such a good actor and it's just sad to see him looking so tired. There doesn't appear to be anything noteworthy here. Looks very standard and quite dull.

I love Argento, but this looks crazy and ridiculously bad. Must see it 🙂

Would be cool if it was made in the 70's.
