Nothing would make me happier than to see Dario Argento stop making movies. Mother of Tears was bad but this new film looks flat out laughable. His recent venture into horror is a 3D re-imagining of Bram Stoker’s Dracula entitled … you guessed it … Dracula 3D. According to this new promo teaser (or whatever you want to call this), the first official trailer for the film is right around the corner. The video seen below isn’t as excruciatingly bad as the initial sales trailer that was released last year, but it doesn’t reinvigorate the love and admiration I once had for the “Italian Hitchcock.” It appears that he is trying to make a classic horror movie that is reminiscent of the Karloff and Lugosi flicks. Unfortunately, he has missed the mark entirely. I want to like his new films so much. I honestly do. The man has given me some of my favorite images in the history of horror cinema. The opening scene of Suspiria, the bullet through the peephole in Opera, the tension leading up to the bathtub death in Deep Red . . . these and so many others are such iconic scenes in Argento’s long filmography. Hell, I even have an original poster from Tenebre signed by the maestro himself framed and hanging on my wall. What talent Dario Argento had at one point is no where to be found in the footage seen below. Proceed with extreme caution.
