Argento's Dracula 3D
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.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"When insects are the best thing in your movie, it's probably time to retire."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"Some viewers will get unintended jollies from a gigantic, rampaging grasshopper; others, from the director's queasy-making penchant for unclothing his exhibitionist daughter Asia."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"...the film should be retitled "Dario Argento's Whatever Popped into My Head.""
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"In the grand scheme of Argento's films, Dracula will never be more than a footnote...But fans of horror all'Italia won't want to miss it."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International
"... perfect for a living room full of inebriated hecklers to have their way with it... you'll never look at a praying mantis the same way ever again."
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"Argento ... brings enough moments of kinky madness to his not-great "Dracula" to indicate there may yet be greatness lurking within him. Here's hoping."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Unfortunately, Argento never acknowledges he's in on the joke, nor is the film quite ridiculous enough for us to coast enjoyably on derision."
‑ Zachary Wigon, Village Voice
"Dario Argento is much better than this. Hell, Asia Argento is much better than this."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Through 3D glasses too darkly, the extra dimension is not taken advantage of -- and in fact appears detrimental."
‑ Donald J. Levit, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"With Dracula 3D, we finally know which of the great '70s genre filmmakers have fallen the hardest, and the answer is Dario Argento."
‑ Gabe Toro, The Playlist
"Argento strands his actors in a variety of crummy master shots and close-ups that accentuate their every exaggerated gesture and line-reading."
‑ Nick Schager, AV Club
"Director Argento half-heartedly mixes schlocky 3D f/x with one-dimensional characters for a near-two-hour joke that ought to have been funnier."
‑ Rob Nelson, Variety
"It manages, barely, to be stupid enough at enough points to be fun to watch."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"John Carpenter once called (Argento) his greatest influence. After this, he is surely his biggest disappointment."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"Argento's Dracula 3D is an absolute travesty of a film completely devoid of creativity or imagination. It's like taking your favorite folklore, stripping it of everything you love, making it as dull as possible, and then lighting it on fire."
‑ Chris Sawin,
