Argento's Dracula 3D is a comedy
Dario Argento has been working on his Dracula film in 3D, a film that has attracted Rutger Hauer, Asia Argento and Thomas Kretschmann to the film, and it's no small wonder for Dario Argento has a classic reputation.
However having seen the promo trailer for his Dracula 3D I have to admit I stifled a good few laughs, not just because of the acting, the screaming, the terrible clichés, the music, but...oh wait, that's everything. I know it's a promo, but this is terrible and I wouldn't have let it see the light of day.
I have to admit I've never been one of these people that has been allured by Dario Argento, I know that a lot of people are, but I've not thought much of his films and this promo real isn't going to change any of that.
He's working on a new version of Dracula, filmed in 3D, called Dracula 3D and with the names above involved you might think it would be good, well judging from this promo trailer it's certainly not.
I'm hoping this has been very badly edited and the sound, effects and editing on the final work are far from complete, well you can only hope.
I have to warn you that if you intend to see the film this trailer contains just about every plot turn there could be, albeit in a messed up and confusing way so you may not be aware you're seeing spoiler until you reach the end of the short cut.
I'm far from impressed, but then I didn't expect to be, although this hasn't even met those expectations.
Here's the footage which comes through Twitch, revel in the opening music, the shot of the horse worrier, and realise that it doesn't get much better. Oh, if you do stay with it, tell me this, where did the Starship Troopers creature leap into the Dracula story?!
