Dracula 3D (Dario Argento) Blu-ray

Posted December 23, 2013 05:45 PM by Webmaster

IFC FilmsIFC Films and MPI Home Video have officially announced that they will release on Blu-ray Italian director Dario Argento's Dracula 3D (2012), starring Thomas Kretschmann, Marta Gastini, Asia Argento, Rutger Hauer, Miriam Giovanelli, and Unax Ugalde. The release will be available for purchase on January 28th.

Horror maestro Dario Argento (Suspiria) puts his unique stylistic spin on the classic supernatural tale with Dracula, a visually sumptuous retelling of the legendary myth. It's been 400 years since Count Dracula's (Kretschmann, Wanted) beloved Dolingen De Gratz passed away, leaving the immortal bloodsucker forever abandoned. But when he discovers that local newlywed Mina Harker (Gastini, The Rite) bears a striking resemblance to Dolingen, his furious yearning is reawakened as he believes Mina to be a reincarnation of his beloved. Luring her husband Jonathan away to his castle with the help of his minion (and Mina's best friend) Lucy (Argento, xXx), Dracula embarks on a bloody quest to reunite with his long lost love and live forever with her in hellish immortality. Only the arrival of vampire expert Abraham Van Helsing (Hauer, Blade Runner) can put an end to the fiend's unholy plan. Luridly violent and brimming with passionate eroticism, Dario Argento's Dracula is an all-out assault on the senses from one of horror cinema's most celebrated auteurs.

Special Features:
  • Behind the Scenes Featurette
  • Original Trailer
  • Original Red Band Trailer

Note: Please note that the Red Band trailer included with this announcement is not appropriate to view at work.

I've been curious about this movie for a long while now... I want to see it, but I'm not sure how seriously I should be taking it when I go into it. Will probably rent before purchasing...

NetFlix will be carrying this on disc. I am a pretty big Argento fan and apologist (I really liked Mother of Tears, for example) but even I am not willing to risk a blind-buy on this one.

Is that the finished product in the trailer above? That's the worst CGI I've ever seen in a film.

Netflix does not carry 3D, so I will be forced to buy this if I want to see it - unless someone knows of another source for rental 3D BluRays. Seems like a lot of mindless violence.

This trailer manages to make it look a bit more stylish and fun than I remember. I only saw it in 2D, sober and alone. It's definitely a few steps down from Mother of Tears. If you go into it expecting nothing but a total cheese-fest, it has a few redeeming elements for Argento followers (I'm sure 3D, drunk, and with an audience is the way to go). The first 20 minutes were hard to get through, plenty of dull patches throughout the movie. Looks like Owen Glieberman was the only critic they could get glowing quotes from. Sounds like he was in a good mood when he saw it. I got reminded of his thrashing of Apocalypto from around the time my Entertainment Weekly subscription ran out.

The answer is on the cover. 3D & 2D, one disc.

It is a combo disc. Trust me, I already checked. Otherwise, I would have bit the bullet and pre-ordered this crap.

I'm about done with fuckin' vampires. I've had a lifetime's worth thrown at me in the last five years, and most of it was teenage-drivel bullshit.

Available in iTunes since Oct, why wait for release date (based on trailer, I haven't actually checked).

This actually looks like a pretty funny comedy, intended or not. The females seem to have the acting ability of porn stars. I especially like the giant praying mantis. As we all know, Bram Stoker wrote extensively about giant praying mantises in the original novel.

I doubt I would spend BD money for this, but it looks like it would make a great audience-participation midnight show at a theater (remember those?).

this is a combo disc, i am already up to my 2nd (I Robot) my first was Dredd 3D being a combo disc with 3D/2D disc on one side. i did learn these things sometimes prompt for which version to watch by still pictures or in the menu itself when a 3D blu-ray player is attached to a 3D display.

this one doesn't look intriguing, and there is I Frankenstein forthcoming, method, 2D/3D combo disc, 3D version, Prime focus 2D to ViewD 3D conversion.

this one, may or may not have been created in post production for its 3D.

iwanttobeabmoviestar: You stated that Netflix carries 3D disks, but I can't find any, nor can I find any way to enhance my account to include 3D disks. I have been using NetFlix for several years now, and pay extra to receive Bluray disks. I've been browsing around "My Account" to try to find anything about 3D. No success.

Are you sure that you are correct about this?

Terrible film. Like an Italian porn without the porn. Stay away from this turd and watch a classic like SUSPIRIA instead.

Oh wow, and here was I thinking last year's Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters looked bad! Let's face it though, it's been a long time since Argento directed anything decent, he really should consider retiring. When you start to make Uwe Boll look like a gifted director, it's pretty much time to throw in the towel.

It's rather sad to think the director of horror classics like Suspiria and Tenebrae has been reduced to directing sub-par direct to DVD fluff like this. I'm a big fan of Rutger Hauer, but even his presence wouldn't tempt me to watch this!

Why do some people value shit? Is it a contrarian thing or do some people genuinely have such bad taste?

One man's trash is another man's treasure. This looks pretty awful, but the trailer isn't boring, and the cover art is pretty nifty, so I'd probably rent it at least.

I'd watch it out of curiosity...even though I doubt I'd like it. Newer Argento tends to be on the bad side, but then again, I didn't mind 'Do You Like Hitchcock?' and that's one of the newer ones.
