Dracula 3D

Dario Argento, Chef-Fantast des italienischen Kinos, adaptiert Bram Stokers wuchtigen Roman zum knapp zweistündigen Mummenschanz, gemäß Jahrmarktsethos natürlich auch noch in 3D. Das heißt Thomas Kretschmann schmalzt und beißt sich durch herzzerreißend altmodische Kulissen, verwandelt sich in Wolf, Kakerlake und eine gigantische Gottesanbeterin (!), während Kult-Holländer Rutger Hauer als Abraham Van Helsing Jagd auf ihn macht. Schon jetzt ein Film Maudit, für alle mit offenem Geist vor allem eine berauschende Hyper-Trash-Erfahrung und essenzielle B-Filmkunst. (Markus Keuschnigg) Vorfilm: BLOW-UP - DARIO ARGENTO (Digital / color / 4 min., commissioned by ARTE) by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (biography: see L’ÉTRANGE COULEUR DES LARMES DE TON CORPS)

Transylvania, 1893. Jonathan Harker, a young librarian, arrives at the village of Passo Borgo to work for Count Dracula, a noble man from the area. When faced with the mysterious personality of his host, Jonathan quickly discovers the Count’s true nature and how dangerous the man might be, notably to his wife, Mina. Abraham Van Helsing has already crossed Dracula’s path, and as violent deaths start piling up, he might be the only man standing in the way of the Count’s evil intentions. “More than anything, Argento’s DRACULA is a gory homage to Hammer horror, all heaving bosoms, quaint European travelogue and lush color photography.” (Maitland McDonagh, Film Journal International) Supporting Short: BLOW-UP - DARIO ARGENTO (Digital / color / 4 min., commissioned by ARTE) by Hélène Cattet and Bruno Forzani (Biografie: siehe L’ÉTRANGE COULEUR DES LARMES DE TON CORPS)
