Dario Argento is a director that many horror fans know well and admire greatly, though it’s been some time since we’ve seen an English release from him. That will soon change as his new take on the classic Bram Stoker icon will be released this October in DRACULA 3D. The production has been talked about for the last year or so, though there hasn’t been much official information released. Today we have a rather cool retro-looking poster (above) and some new images (below) for you to check out. The movie stars Thomas Kretshmann (as Dracula), Marta Gastini, Asia Argento, Unax Ugalde and the great Rutger Hauer (as Abraham Van Helsing). There was a teaser trailer released about a year ago (which you can also see below), though it appeared to contain a lot of unfinished footage, so I’m not sure it’s an appropriate representation of the final film. Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
Horror master Dario Argento returns with 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 (the director’s own daughter) as a local all-too-eager to fall under the Count’s sway.
