Argento’s Dracula Releasing Stateside


Dracula 3d Photo 1Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D is finally getting a release date here in the states on October 4th from IFC. The film is also going through a bit of a title change to Argento’s Dracula which I like much more than Dracula 3D.

The film stars Thomas Kretschmann, Marta Gastini, Asia Argento, Unax Ugalde, Miriam Giovanelli, Maria Cristina Heller, Franco Ravera, Augusto Zucchi and Rutger Hauer in the role of Van Helsing.

Synopsis“TRANSYLVANIA, 1893. 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.”

        The movie does have strong points. It is the most faithful adaptation of the novel. Even more than Coppola’s. It does a great job of capturing that village fear of the unknown. But it has lots of CGI and weird bite scenes. And the actor that plays Dracula is just weak. Cinematography and art direction are fantastic.

        From the synopsis, this sounds nothing like the novel! But I am still looking forward to it. Argento and Dracula sounds like a good combination.

          You are right. I made a confusion. Actually the Coppola version is the original novel, except for the prologue. The 1924 play is the one that got this village fear that argento captured so well.
