Are you ready for a new, bloodier take on “Dracula”? Well, get prepared for “Argento’s Dracula 3D,” which will be opening in select theaters starting Oct. 4.
The film, distributed by IFC Midnight, is the classic story of Dracula reimagined through the eyes of horror master Dario Argento. The gory film was an official selection at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and features iconic actor Rutger Hauer as vampire hunter Van Helsing. And yes, like the title states, it’s in 3D, so you’ll get even more bang for your buck.
“Argento’s Dracula” stars Thomas Kretschmann, Asia Argento, Marta Castini, Rutger Hauer, Unax Ugalde and Miriam Giovanelli. Here’s the synopsis of “Argento’s Dracula”:
“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.”
