The director who brought us the classic horror thriller Suspiria, Dario Argento, has taken on the story of Dracula and has reimagined it for the big screen for the 500th time. The movie is called Argento's Dracula 3D, and it seems to have an old school Hammer horror feel to it. I like earlier work, but over the years his stuff just hasn't evolved. In fact, it just seems like it's been getting worse.
The movie star the director's daughter, Asia Argento, and Rutger Hauer plays Van Helsing, which seems like the best thing this movie has going for it.
Argento's Dracula 3D "offers a bloody, luridly creepy 3D version of the classic vampire tale, drenched in gore and sex. 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. Featuring the iconic Rutger Hauer as vampire hunter Van Helsing and the inimitable Asia Argento (Dario's own daughter) as a local all-too-eager to fall under the Count's sway."
The movie is set to hit theaters in New York and Los Angeles on October 4th. Watch the trailer and let us know what you think!
