Marina Antunes [Celluloid 12.15.11] horror vampires



I've previously waxed poetic on Dario Argento's Dracula 3D but nothing I'd seen or read before really prepared me for what's presented in this, our first look at the teaser.

Admittedly this is a work in progress with many of the effects being incomplete but it doesn't really make up for the rest of the crapfest. It's only a trailer and I can already see trademarks of, on a good day, a "so bad it's good" movie in the making – the acting is terrible. Can't really fix that with effects now can we?


The film, which stars Rutger Hauer, Thomas Kretschmann, Marta Gastini and Asia Argento is yet another adaptation of Stokers' classic novel, for the first time entirely shot in 3D. That aspect's never appealed to me but I was curious to see Argento's take on the material but now that I've seen this, I'm not so sure.

Maybe when this is all done up with proper score and effects it'll be a little less cringe worthy but as it's presented here, it's not good. Not good at all.

I'm going to wait for an official trailer before making a final decision on whether to stay on board with this project but for now, my excitement has been hugely subdued.

Before it gets yanked, check out the teaser below.
