What a fun movie!

It wasn't bad, kind of like a much darker CSI episode, so I had fun watching it.

The Prince of Darkness is back on the big screen and, in some ways, is bigger than ever. But in this case, the prince in question isn't the subject of Dracula 3D, but revered horror director, Dario Argento, whose take on the Bram Stoker tale hit theaters and On-Demand internet video sites in the US this month.

Teamed with three other screenwriters, Argento adapts the Stoker novel with surprising clarity. The familiar faces are all in their places with Thomas Kretschmann as Count Dracula, Marta Gastini as Mina, Asia Argento as Lucy and everyone's favorite noir Dutchman, Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing.

Again, the movie follows classic form as Jonathan Harker (Unax Ugalde) is lured to the castle of the Count by promise of employment and sucked into the world of vampirism (pun alert). Also in short-string Italian horror style, instead of Dracula going to the rest of his victims, this time, they come to him in his Italian rustic village posing as psudeo-Germanic rustic fiefdom.

Despite that alteration of the plot, Dracula 3D unfolds with the familiar Stoker markers. Harker is entrapped, Lucy gets turned, Mina encounters the Count, Dracula recalls his dead wife... You know the drill.And that's the problem. As another take on the Stoker story, Dracula 3D isn't bad. In fact, it's very passable and somewhat cleverly done. But as a film that we have come to expect from Dario Argento... Well, in that regard, it can only be described as... Safe.

That's the watchword for this film as far as what we get in the American release. The characters are safe, the bloodletting is nondescript, the death scenes are typical for a vampire movie. The most transgressive aspect of the whole film is the tendency for Asia Argento to keep turning up naked in her father's film.

Let me get this out of the way: I usually like Dario Argento, so I'll admit to some bias going in. And who doesn't love Dracula? So I was among a (I assume) relatively small group of people who were kind of excited about this release. So is it a good Dracula movie? Not remotely. But, as a few others have mentioned, it sure is a hoot.

I won't rehash the plot here; suffice it to say that Argento and no less than three additional writers took some moments from Bram Stoker's novel, and just gave them some, umm, tweaking. In one time-saving liberty taken with the source material, pretty much all the action takes place at Dracula's castle. There is some nice scenery, although viewing the film in 3-D as intended (more on that in a moment) does reveal how spectacularly fake much of it is. There's plenty of blood and bare breasts, including some obligatory nudity from Asia "Clothing Optional" Argento. There's some horrible--nay, HORRIBLE acting from everyone. Even Rutger Hauer, probably the only actor who will be known to American audiences, is totally phoning it in. Like from a rotary phone in 1980. Seriously, you could throw a rock at a middle-school play and come up with better actors.

And (spoiler alert, though I'll bet you've heard this one already) then there's that giant praying mantis attack. You'll never convince me that Argento meant that to be taken seriously. It's the ultimate "WTF??" moment, made even more laughable by some of the worst CGI ever committed to film. You almost have to give them credit for originality; in the hundreds, if not thousands, of vampire films out there, I bet that has never happened.

I should have also said upfront that I like 3-D movies.

Watched this on Netflix and was surprised at how bad it was. The acting was horrid, the writing even worse. The coloring of the sets, however, was really well done. And the regular dose of B&B (boobs and butts) wasn't a horrible thing.

No need to pay for this on BluRay... watch it once on Netflix and that'll be enough.

My first experience with Dario Argento's work was Jenifer on the tv show Masters of Horror. It just so happen to be one of the craziest episodes of the whole series based on the premise, so I loved it and showed it to many friends (who also had a blast watching it). I decided to check out his other work so when I heard Giallo was coming out, I watched it. It wasn't bad, kind of like a much darker CSI episode, so I had fun watching it. Afterwards I decided to watch some of his older films, and fell in love with Suspiria, Phenomena, Trauma, Mother of Tears, and I even saw the 120 minute version of Deep Red (though I recommend the shorter version to be honest). All these movies I enjoyed. Many have straight out HATED some of these films, saying Dario has declined TREMENDOUSLY in quality. I don't know if I'm the best judge of this because I actually liked Giallo, but I've always defended him.

Sadly, this is not the case with Dracula 3D. I had small hopes this would be a fun movie. I heard ALL the bad press about it. The almost bad reception it got from both mainstream and horror critics. I ignored them. I watched the movie. I've never been so bored in my entire life. I forced myself to watch this movie to the end. To find some of sort of positive to this film. I have found a few. #1 Dracula becomes a praying mantis in one scene #2 Dracula kills five guys in awesome stylized violence #3 The fakes sex scene I've ever seen #4 The fakest train station I have ever seen. That's it. About 10 minutes out the 110 minutes are worth watching (and I'm only guessing here). This movie commits the ultimate cinema sin of just being boring. Nothing of real interest happens that keeps your attention.
