The film is described as a bloody, luridly creepy 3D version of the classic vampire tale, drenched in gore and sex.
"Dracula 3D" stars Thomas Kretshmann (upcoming NBC series "Dracula" starring as vampire expert Abraham Van Helsing opposite Jonathan Rhys Myers’ Dracula), Argento’s daughter, Asia Argento, Marta Gastini and Rutger Hauer.
The film is based on a script written by Dario Argento, Antonio Tentori, Stefano Piani and Enrique Cerezo.
IFC Midnight will open the film in Los Angeles and New York and on VOD on October 4.
Argento's "Dracula 3D" is the most recent adaptation following hundreds of films inspired by Bram Stoker’s novel published in 1897.
Here's the synopsis:
Transylvania, 1893. At the home of Lucy (Asia Argento), a photograph on display of Mina and Jonathan Harker (Marta Gastini and Unax Ugalde), happy newlyweds on their wedding day, is what sets off the furious yearning of Count Dracula (Thomas Kretschmann) who sees Mina as the reincarnation of his beloved Dolingen De Gratz, who died over 400 years ago. With the help of his beautiful followers, Lucy and Tania (Miriam Giovanelli), Count Dracula manages to lure Jonathan and Mina to his castle by promising the young Harker a job as a librarian. The Count’s true intentions are immediately clear, reuniting him with long-lost love and eliminating any and all obstacles that stand in his way. Only the arrival of vampire expert Abraham Van Helsing (Rutger Hauer) can help restore the small village of Passo Borgo to normalcy.
