Dario Argento's Dracula will make you sink your teeth into a bloody good time

The count has begun.
That's "count."
As in Dracula.
Horror maestro Dario Argento puts his unique stylistic spin on the classic supernatural tale in Dracula, a sexually-charged visually sumptuous retelling of the legendary myth. The film arrives on DVD and 3D Blu-ray on January 28, 2014, via IFC Midnight.
It's been 400 years since Count Dracula's (portrayed by Thomas Kretschmann) beloved Countess Dolingen passed away, leaving the immortal bloodsucker forever abandoned. But when he discovers that local newlywed Mina Harker (Marta Gastini) bears a striking resemblance to the Countess, 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 (Asia Argento), 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 (Rutger Hauer) can put an end to the fiend's unholy plan.
Luridly violent and brimming with passionate eroticism, Argento's Dracula is an all-out assault on the senses from one of horror cinema's most celebrated auteurs. It stands in grand company with such Argento classics as The Bird With the Crystal Plumage, Tenebre, Deep Red and The Cat o' Nine Tails.
A bloody good time!
