This is one of the most desiccated, lifeless vampire movies in recent memory—that's really saying something—and long-time Argento fans will want to treat it like The Mother of Tears and conveniently forget that it exists. Put a stake through this one. The special silver bullet transforms Dracula into ashes and Mina limps out of the graveyard, Van Helsing along with her. The following night Tania, having burnt Harker's photo of his wife Mina, tries again to seduce and bite Harker, partially undressing in front of him, but a furious Dracula intervenes, throwing her across the room. Put glue on the eight small tabs four per side that are located on each side of the top of Dracula head. Better to bask again in the lurid, blood-splattered majesty of Suspiria, when the director was in his prime.
Hauer actually comes off the best here but it's too bad he doesn't show up until the final third of the picture. It was released theatrically in France on 27 November 2013. Many of the Italian actors are clearly dubbed in English—and badly—but the lame dialogue is at least clear and easy to understand. She is completely under the count's influence; the count had orchestrated the events leading up to their encounter; in fact Mina looks exactly like his beloved Dolingen de Gratz, who died some centuries ago. Rather than provide a true-to-the-source version of Stoker's Dracula or a wildly new and different interpretation, Argento and screenwriter Antonio Tentori have made the odd choice of sticking with the core characters and some of the main narrative turns, but then making numerous incremental and unnecessary changes. If you're gonna be bad, be really bad.
The project was first announced on 20 May 2010 at the , along with a teaser poster. Some time later, Jonathan Harker, a young librarian hired by Count Dracula, a nobleman from the area, arrives at the village. Upon arriving at the castle, Harker is greeted by Tania, reanimated as a vampire, who tries from the very beginning to seduce him; however they are interrupted by Dracula's entrance welcoming Harker. But like his pal and fellow '70s horror icon, George A. The music sounds full at clear at a normal listening level, though, and I do have to admit that the film makes decent use of the surround speakers, occupying them with cross-channel and directional effects in many scenes. That night Harker glimpses Dracula climbing unnaturally up the outside wall of the castle. 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.
Color is vibrant and contrast consistent, even if the grading can't rescue the boring lighting. There's really nothing unique to his vision here and there's certainly nothing in the picture that you will see and think that belongs to the style of Argento.

The popularity of the bloodthirsty man in the world has not yet reached a global scale, and the librarian who had come to Romania with his family does not even know what they're dangerous. Their encounter makes her forget what happened during her visit. Dracula bites Harker's neck, but allows him to live.
Dracula is sadly another bad film from the once great director and it's really too bad he didn't try to either make it more campy or at least bring something new to the story. Excessive noise and compression issues are avoided, however, and there are no major distractions that aren't a direct result of how shoddily the film was made to begin with. I can't say it's the absolute nadir of Argento's latter-day career—again, it's really hard to get worse than The Mother of Tears—but neither does it show any improvement. Bend the tabs toward you, and then glue the back sides of the arm leaving glue off the tabs together. Features interviews with screenwriter Antonio Tentori, along with costumers, special effects artists, and more. Romero, he skulks on nonetheless, producing increasingly unwatchable trash. The sequence of such strange and dramatic events summons the aid of Van Helsing, vampire expert of the techniques used to eliminate them.
The scenes of Dracula transforming from other creatures wolf, owl are pretty bad. Argento's latest is the abominable Dracula 3D, which scrapes the bottom of two barrels that are both thoroughly exhausted at the moment—vampire movies and gimmicky stereoscopic films.

Year: 2012 Genre: Horrors, Thriller, Melodramic Country: Italy, France, Spain Director: Dario Argento Actors: Thomas Kretschmann, Marta Gastineau, Asia Argento, Unaks Ugalde, Miriam Giovanelli, Rutger Hauer, Maria Cristina Heller Description Transylvania is full of mysteries of the ancient world. In terms of general picture quality, Dracula 3D and its 2D incarnation are both well- adapted to Blu-ray, even if they struggle to overcome certain aspects of their low-budget origins. The wooden script and equally wooden performances don't help at all. Marta Gastina is moderately better as the semi-heroic Mina—she has a sort of willowy, Mia Wasikowska vibe—and while he's a solid Van Helsing, Rutger Hauer's last-act appearance can't come even close to resuscitating the film. Thomas Kretschmann is the driest, most un-seductive Dracula in recent memory, and Unax Ugalde, who looks bizarrely like a cross between Jason Schwartzman and John Malkovich, is somehow—imagine this! If anything, this is a movie that could afford to be a bit more generous with the goofy, effects-shooting-out-of-the-screen showboating. The performances are also pretty awful with Kretschmann turning in one of the most bland Dracula's in history. Asia Argento's contribution, meanwhile, is to once again get naked in one of her father's films.

Whenever you're making a version of something like Dracula that has been told a hundred different times then you really need to add something new or fresh, which sadly the director doesn't do. Once the arms are dry, put glue on the blank side of the open tabs and glue the arms to each side of Dracula.
