Trailer Alert: Check The New Red Band Trailer For Argento's DRACULA 3D!

"...In All Its Awfulness", I easily could have added. Because oh boy... does this look bad in places.

Basically this trailer takes the fun bits of the old industry screener we saw years ago, it adds a few more fun bits, and that is good news. What is definitely NOT good news, is that the cgi in the finished film still looks as much like a work-in-progress as it previously did. As does the color timing and the lighting.
Still, to be honest, this does look entertaining. And 3D actually does look better when there is enough light around, so that might explain why Dario Argento chose to make it all look as bright as it does. Making the rest of the film seem like a production made in the early seventies is, therefore, maybe intentional as well... maybe.

Do I need to explain that with the nudity and blood showers, this might be a teeny bit Not Safe For Work? Because that's what Red Band means, right? Good.
Not sure if that rating is real, by the way: it would be the first time I see people being warned for a "giant killer praying mantis" in a red band!

    I liked it yes it's cheezy intentionally so if you ask me. Yes the cgi could have been better but it's a 5 million euro movie i'm not complaining. Can't compare it to work someone made 30 - 40 years ago and the acting in the old movies wasn't that good overall either. I would call it a craptastic brilliant cheezefest. People are to hard with their ratings because it came from Argento (godfather of giallo's and disturbing set pieces) probably, and expectations aren't met. Just go into it with no expectations and there's a lot to like comparing movies by a 72 year old decrepit director to his masterpieces he's no Clint Eastwood. He's frigging Dario and i love the man and his work to death.

    Did Argento have a stroke or something. I mean, how can he look at this and think it's anywhere near acceptable? Oh for the good old days

  • Fub Frank

    Wow. Pretty awful to wish that on someone.

  • Ard Vijn

    I don't think he's wishing a stroke on dear Dario, but wonders if he's had one already.

  • Martin Wagner

    Ooooh dear.
