  • Summary: At the home of Lucy (Asia Argento), a photograph on display of Mina and Jonathan Harker (Marta Gastini and Unax Ugalde), sets off the furious yearning of Count Dracula (Thomas Kretschmann) who sees Mina as the reincarnation of his beloved Dolingen De Gratz, who died over 400 years ago. With the help of his beautiful followers, Lucy and Tania (Miriam Giovanelli), Count Dracula manages to lure Jonathan and Mina to his castle by promising the young Harker a job as a librarian. Only the arrival of vampire expert Abraham Van Helsing (Rutger Hauer) can help restore the small village of Passo Borgo to normalcy. [IFC Midnight] Collapse

    The effects may be cheap and unconvincing, the sets spare, the costumes from some unwanted back rack, but Argento still brings enough moments of kinky madness to his not-great "Dracula" to indicate there may yet be greatness lurking within him.

    At least a bit of an improvement over the embarrassment of "Giallo", but no matter how promising the idea of him tackling Bram Stoker's classic might sound in theory, the result cannot be regarded as anything but a disappointment.

    The film is dispiriting because there's virtually no sign of Dario Argento in it, nor of any novel motivation to mount yet another version of an oft-told tale.

    Director Argento half-heartedly mixes schlocky 3D f/x with one-dimensional characters for a near-two-hour joke that ought to have been funnier.

    No amount of intentional stabs at humor can offset the hilarious awfulness of Dario Argento’s Dracula.

    When insects are the best thing in your movie, it’s probably time to retire.

    Utterly lacking in imagination or suspense, this inane effort is strictly for hardcore Argento cultists.
