    Can´t see the point of spending money to filming this in 3D when most probably it won´t get any worldwide release.

    God in heaven. The 1st official trailer is out. Can anyone honestly say they don't want to drink half a fifth of something and check this out?

    It's sad to see someone you admire doing work like this. So this is normally the type of thing I'd go out of my way to avoid. But this film looks so damn ridiculous I think I'll be able to get past all that.

    Music by Claudio Simonetti, SPFX by Sergio Stivaletti, and it was shot by Luciano Tovoli (Suspiria).
    At least there is major talent in key areas here. At best this could be fun, but the glory days of Argento are in the past, and I don't think Dracula is gonna change that.

    Based on the trailers we can only assume all of these guys are trying to end their careers so they can get on with retirement. It looks like an Asylum film. The effects are laughably atrocious. And the music sounds like something out of Ejacula, La Vampira. It might look a little better with the brightness dialed down for 3D. But I'm not holding out much hope for the music or effects.

    This is proof that Mother Of Tears could have been a whole lot worse.

    Christ that trailer was cringe worthy! I think I own t-shirts that cost more than this film.

    that looked fucking shite!!!!! is that really an official trailer, it looks like something someone threw together at home, and then claimed it to be official, even the SCI-FI channel would turn that down from the evidence here, really really bad and really really depressing. Dario Argento RIP!

    Dario should just direct Asia Argento in a porn flick already.

    I can't decide which movie looks worse, this or Tim Burton's Dark Shadows?

    :lol:

    One of the youtube commentators compared it to looking like a Sega CD game. Pretty spot-on.

    Maybe all these comments lowered my expectations on the trailer but I was expecting worse.

    Wow this looks extremely bad! I am done looking forward to Argento films and running out and buying them on DVD/ Blu Ray. I'll wait until this hits the $3 bin before I give it a watch. Unless it ends up being a so bad its good film then I may pick it up when it $5.

    This is coming to Blu-ray in Italy at the end of the month. I've noticed a couple of rips have turned up online, anyone daring enough to check it out?

    I saw this movie earlier today, and it was even worse than expected.

    The acting was so horrible it was painful to sit through. If you have played one of those early 90:s interactive videogames, then you know what to expect from the acting.

    The CGI in this movie was beyond terrible. The werewolf transformation looked like something from a PS2 FMV sequence. But the worst was the part when Dracula was pushing away one of his Vampirebrides across the floor, and instead of using a stuntwoman, it was done with a horrible CGI animation. It has to be seen to be belived. And how about that trainstation green screen effect?

    This is a new low for Argento.

    I felt bad for Hauer, as it felt like he didn´t want to be there.

    Please Argento, stop making movies. You lost your talent 25 years ago, and it´s sure not getting any better...

    This makes SyFy/Asylum and Uwe Boll movies look like high art...

    It really sad, as I love Argento´s work up to "Opera". I wonder if Argento is still alive, or if some evil alien took over his body, tormenting us by making all this crap
