So far, we here at Backwoods Horror haven’t really said much…well, anything on Dario Argento’s DRACULA 3D. Why? Who knows. It probably has a lot to do with us, for some reason, not hearing about it until now. In all the horror news out there, we’ve overlooked the next DARIO ARGENTO film. Well, all that’s about to be corrected.
Here’s what we do know thanks to Daily Dead:
Dario Argento’s DRACULA 3D screened earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival and we’ve been waiting to hear about the movie’s US release plans. It is now being reported that the film has been acquired for US distribution. IFC Films has picked up the movie for its IFC Midnight label, according to Fangoria. While a specific release date has not been set, expect it some time in 2013 and we’ll have more release details in the very near future.
DRACULA 3D was directed by Dario Argento and stars Thomas Kretschmann (Dracula), Marta Gastini (Mina), Asia Argento (Lucy), Unax Ugalde (Harker), and Rutger Hauer (Van Helsing).
The tale begins with Jonathan Harker, journeying by train and carriage from England to Count Dracula’s crumbling, remote castle situated in the Carpathian Mountains on the border of Transylvania. The purpose of his mission is to catalogue the big library of Dracula. At first enticed by Dracula’s gracious manner, Harker soon discovers that he has become a prisoner in the castle. He also begins to see disquieting facets of Dracula’s nocturnal life. One night while searching for a way out of the castle, and against Dracula’s strict admonition not to venture outside his room at night, Harker falls under the spell of three wanton female vampires, the Brides of Dracula.
