Dario Argento's 'Dracula 3D' hit VOD in the US towards the end of last week and in case you haven't sunk your teeth into the Italian production just yet perhaps this new, and quite bizarre, red band trailer hot from the distributor IFC Midnight. This reimagination of the classic gothic tale, as unnecessary as it is, looks like an odd little feature and this new trailer which features a giant praying mantis and Hammer-esque special effects does little too enthuse me further. 'Dracula 3D' stars Thomas Kretschmann as the fanged one along with fellow co-stars, Marta Gastini, the sexy Asia Argento (below), Unax Ugalde, Miriam Giovanelli and Rutger Hauer ('Hobo with a Shotgun'). Head below to check out the new trailer.
"The tale begins with Jonathan Harker, journeying by train and carriage from England to Count Dracula’s crumbling, remote castle situated in the Carpathian Mountains on the border of Transylvania. The purpose of his mission is to catalogue the big library of Dracula. At first enticed by Dracula’s gracious manner, Harker soon discovers that he has become a prisoner in the castle. He also begins to see disquieting facets of Dracula’s nocturnal life. One night while searching for a way out of the castle, and against Dracula’s strict admonition not to venture outside his room at night, Harker falls under the spell of three wanton female vampires, the Brides of Dracula."
