New Dracula 3D Trailer Heavy on CG and Light on Bite

Post Thumb:


The first true trailer for Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D is here and it looks … well … there’s owls, wolves, vampires and his lovely daughter, Asia. Just how well all of these components put together will fare is completely up for debate.

Dracula 3D features Asia Argento as Lucy, Thomas Kretschmann as Dracula, Marta Gastini as Mina, and Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing. Miguel Angel Silvestre and Miriam Giovanelli also star.

Thanks to DC reader Dick Winchester for the heads-up!


One night in the woods adjacent to Passo Borgo, at the foot of the Carpazi mountains, a couple of young lovers, Tania and Milos, secretly meet. On her way home, Tania is chased and overcome by a “dark shadow” that kills her. In those days Jonathan Harker, a young librarian, arrives at the village hired by Count Dracula, a nobleman from the area. Tania’s body mysteriously disappears from the cemetery. In the meantime Harker, before going to Count Dracula’s castle, takes the opportunity to visit Lucy Kisslinger, his wife Mina’s best friend as well as the daughter of the local mayor.

Upon arriving at the castle, Harker is greeted by Tania, brought back to life from the dead and made vampire, who tries from the very beginning to seduce him; however, they are interrupted by Dracula’s entrance welcoming Harker. The following night Tania tries again to bite Harker; she is close to his neck when she is stopped by the count, who gets the upper hand, and it is he himself who bites Harker’s neck, however allowing him to live. The following day, weakened but still conscious, Harker attempts to escape, but as soon as he is outside the castle, a large wolf with a white lock assaults and savagely kills him.

Meanwhile, Mina, Harker’s wife, arrives in the village and is guest for a few days at the home of her dearest friend Lucy Kisslinger, who will also be bitten and vampirized. The day after, Mina, worried about her husband, goes to Count Dracula’s castle.

Their encounter makes her forget the reason for her presence there. She is completely under the count’s influence; the count had orchestrated the events leading up to their encounter; in fact Mina looks exactly like his beloved Dolinger, who died some centuries ago. Upon her return to the Kisslinger house, Mina learns of the death of her dear friend Lucy.

The sequence of such strange and dramatic events summons the aid of Van Helsing, vampire expert of the techniques used to eliminate them. Van Helsing, aware of the circumstances, decides to act swiftly and prepares the tools needed to combat vampires. He directs himself to the center of evil, Count Dracula’s castle.

Meanwhile Dracula, in the village, kills the inhabitants who rescinded their pact, while Van Helsing, inside the castle, is able to definitively eliminate Tania. Dracula, intent on his desire to reunite with his beloved wife, leads Mina, completely hypnotized, to the castle where Van Helsing is waiting. He has decided to engage in a deadly fight with his evil foe. During the struggle Van Helsing loses his gun with the silver bullet, and Mina, still under Dracula’s spell, gathers it and tries to aid Dracula, but she misses the target and involuntarily kills him. The special silver bullet transforms Dracula into ashes; but his spirit lifts the ashes into the air and uniting, they shape into a large bat with a mocking grin.

    Hahaha. Boo 🙁
    But I’ll still have to watch.
    …Rutger Hauer!
    IamaslavetotheHauer. It’s sad.

    This is too bad. I was hoping That Argento would at least go more in the direction of his semi-recent Masters of Horror submission, PELTS. Was anyone else transfixed by that? Loved it!

  • kiddcapone

    That’s fucking funny…I didn’t realize it was going to be a comedy.

    Dracula 3D has officially moved into 72nd place on my must-see list of 2012, one spot ahead of Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection…

  • James Coker

    holy shit. . . Dario Argento you have sunk even lower, this makes his Phantom of the Opera look good

    Oh Argento, I miss the days of Suspira, Tenebre and Opera : (

  • The Unknown Murderer

    It does look really cheap. Damn.

  • DavidFullam

    I’m down for anything he does. But this looks like a TV movie 🙁

  • LeBay

    I just…don’t…understand. How has Argento become so terrible? What the hell happened? I know his films have been going downhill for a long time, but this looks like a new low.

    • LSD Zombie

      I think he might be suffering from horror film fatigue. It happened to Craven, Carpenter and Romero as well.

      • Vanvance1

        I’ll agree with Carpenter and Craven. I still think Romero is firing on at least half his cylinders.

        But after seeing Scream 4, a movie so awesomely stupid that it should be the poster child for bad writing, I think Craven is a pod person.

        I gave up on Argento a few movies back.

  • LSD Zombie

    Holy shit, that looks laughably bad. Could even top Mother of Tears in terms of shitty writing and direction.
