Argento's Dracula 3-D: movie review
Time Out says
Where, exactly, is Dario Argento? He’s up there in the title, but none of the horror maestro’s former genius (Suspiria) is evident in this silly, Stoker-by-numbers slog, rife with cheesy digital blood spurts but not a single moment of deep-red gorgeousness. The toothsome lead (Thomas Kretschmann) and his lust object Mina (Marta Gastini) are especially sleep-inducing; so is Rutger Hauer’s dully hectoring Van Helsing. Some viewers will get unintended jollies from a gigantic, rampaging grasshopper; others, from the director’s queasy-making penchant for unclothing his exhibitionist daughter Asia.
