Quando Johnathan Harker trova lavoro nella biblioteca del castello del conte Dracula, la sua giovane sposa Mina si mette in viaggio per raggiungerlo, e sosta a casa dell'amica Lucy. Qui scopre un paese sconvolto dalla barbara uccisione di una ragazza, attaccata da un lupo, e deve rimandare l'incontro col marito perché Lucy si ammala di una febbre inspiegabile fino a morirne. Dopo aver incontrato il conte ed essere stata sedotta dal suo straordinario potere di persuasione, Mina è sempre più sospettosa riguardo agli strani accadimenti del luogo e si affida all'unica persona che sembra sapere cosa fare: Abraham Van Helsing, esperto di vampiri. Per lui e per la sua famiglia, nei secoli, i libri sono sempre stati la cosa più importante: questo è ciò che Argento fa dire a Dracula, al suo primo incontro con Johnathan, e questo è il ponte che lancia con libro di Bram Stoker, allo stesso tempo tradendolo (nell'originale mister Harker è un agente incaricato di una transazione immobiliare) e però recuperandone i personaggi e parte della trama. Scegliendo di eliminare i tanti viaggi dei protagonisti letterari per concentrarsi su un unico luogo, il regista disegna un piccolo e riuscito universo di riferimento, tra il fiabesco (il bosco) e il western (la casa del sindaco, la taverna), sul quale domina, geograficamente e non solo, il gotico rappresentato dal castello.

To his hardcore fans Dario Argento's movies died in the late 80s. Everything else after has suffered at their hands, and in reviews. critics have joined the loop too and it seems that Argento can do nothing right. This is somethiing I always try to defend. True Argento's older movies are clearly superior to what he has been churning out for the last 20 years, but only a small proportion of it is actually poor.

Argento's latest work, Dracula, official title Dracula 3D got killed in reviews, it currently has a 3.6 on IMDB, it's in the Ed Wood league. Now I am sorry I can't have Dario Argento in the Ed Wood category. There are some real positives to take from Argento's take on Dracula and some negatives, so let's break it down.

The Positives:
- The whole film has a nice gothic, Hammeresque look to it, the costume designs and settings really stand out.
- Thomas Kretschmann as Dracula is generally very good and a worthy vampire.
- Some gore effects are fantastic.
- Rutger Hauer is a bad ass Van Helsing killer

The Negatives
- The English dubbing is a real put off. It has always hindered Argento's films, but at least those were classics. Try and get an Italian only version with subtitles, which I believe would turn this movie into a four star one.
- The script overall is very 'flat', again maybe this is just a language difference?
- The CGI is awful, wish Argento didn't dwelve into it.

So really this is a balanced act. Dracula is neither great nor bad. It's entertaining enough- probably could have been better at 90 mins rather than 110.

The movie stars Asia Argento, and again daddy isn't afraid to shoot his daughter in love scenes or being washed naked by a woman.

Dracula di Dario Argento aka Dracula 3D is the kind of film which leaves the audience pondering so many questions. Is it as bad as everyone says? Not quite. Is it the worst thing Argento has ever done? Not quite. Is he only making films these days because he has hefty alimony payments to keep up with or because he bet money he didn't have and now the mob want it back? Quite possibly. Just how did this get selected for the Cannes film Festival, even if it was out of competition? Your guess is as good as mine, but Bunga Bunga parties can't be ruled out.

Argento has always been an inconsistent director, but every few years he'll show some hints of his old mojo creeping back - the first half hour of Sleepless, his enjoyable TV giallo Do You Like Hitchcock? - to raise his admirers' hopes, only to plunge back to rock bottom with a turkey like The Card Player or Mother of Tears. Where once he could construct elaborate setpieces that were as ingenious and intoxicating as they were unlikely if you stopped to think about them, now he just seems to have settled into being a guy who points the camera at stuff every few years. Occasionally he'll move the camera, but he seems to have once again mislaid his ability to move the audience. Aside from the presence of Asia Argento, there's little to mark this out as one of his films, the dominant personality of the film being a TV homage to Hammer with added sex and violence but none of the genuine atmosphere or sporadic imagination.

Very sad to see a once hugely impressive director of the horror genre descend to this appallingly acted slop,
without question his worst effort (beating even the dreadful THE CARD PLAYER),and probably the worst filmic
version of the famous tale I have ever seen..woeful script,appalling CGI backdrops and effects,Rutger Hauer turning up for
the last 20 minutes to phone in a terrible reading of Van Helsing,what can I say except - avoid!? The days of SUSPIRIA and INFERNO are a long way behind Dario now!

It may be that for most of his career now, each new offering from Italian horror auteur Dario Argento has aroused feelings of trepidation at least as much as anticipation among his fans. His last stone cold masterpiece, Tenebrae, was delivered back in 1982. Since then Argento's movies have alternated between the engaging but flawed (Opera,Two Evil Eyes, Sleepless), the middling (Phenomena,Trauma,The Stendhal Syndrome), the dull (The Card Player, Do You Like Hitchcock?) and the frankly mind-bogglingly awful (Phantom of the Opera, Giallo). His new version of the Stoker classic doesn't quite scale the depths of his previous opus and all time nadir, Giallo (which looks increasingly like a bizarre vanity project for its famously unpaid star, Adrian Brody) but gives few grounds for hope that Argento may rescue an increasingly moribund creative output.

The personnel assembled for Dracula 3D only highlight the director's artistic decline. The cameraman, Luciano Tovoli and composer, Claudio Simonetti (of prog rockers Goblin), both collaborated with Argento on, arguably, his best and most important film, Suspiria, and incalculably contributed to that visually stunning and aurally overpowering assault on the senses. Both men acquit themselves quite well on Dracula. Simonetti's score relies rather too heavily on the theremin, evoking the 1950s science fiction cinema exemplified by director Jack Arnold rather than any gothic horror model. But, by and large, it is an effective, well crafted if slightly anonymous score and should do the composer's career no harm.
