      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Schlocky and gross but far from bad enough to be good, Argento's Dracula 3D bites and sucks in all the wrong ways.

      Peter Sobczynski RogerEbert.com As he did with his adaptation of "Phantom of the Opera," Argento offers up a version that plays like a choppy condensation based on hazy memories of the book, then augments it with nudity and gore. Rated: 2/4 Oct 4, 2013 Full Review Neil Genzlinger New York Times When insects are the best thing in your movie, it's probably time to retire. Rated: 1/5 Oct 3, 2013 Full Review Mark Olsen Los Angeles Times Argento ... brings enough moments of kinky madness to his not-great "Dracula" to indicate there may yet be greatness lurking within him. Here's hoping. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 3, 2013 Full Review Mike Thorn Vague Visages I will not go so far as to say that I understand Dracula 3D, not even close, but I know that its sensibility effectively absorbed me. When it comes to the works of Dario Argento, that is all I have come to expect on a first viewing. Mar 25, 2024 Full Review Emiliano Basile EscribiendoCine If we consider that some of the embellishments taken are intentional and used to recapture the look of European films of yonder, we can enjoy the film for its nostalgic touches without taking it too seriously. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 6/10 Apr 7, 2023 Full Review Scott Weinberg TheHorrorShow Whether Mr. Argento meant this to be A) serious, B) silly, or C) a combination of both, the end result is, I'm sorry to say, almost completely unwatchable.

      Giorgio A Very bad performance by the master of horror. Amateurish script and ridiculous mise-en-scène. Argento did worse only later, with "Dark glasses". Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Rudy A Horror on the cheap. I can only guess it was to save money on location shooting that Italian filmmaker Dari Argento decided to take Jonathon Harker out of the real estate business and instead send him to the Borga Pass to be Dracula's librarian. His wife, Mina, is set to join him, and conveniently, her friend Mina happens to live an hour's walk from the castle in Passburg where her father is mayor. It's possible the film is more entertaining in its 3D version, but I doubt it. The script could've been written by a child, and the direction is incompetent. There are occasional moments that are unintentionally comical, but this is not the kind of film that is so bad that it's camp. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/31/23 Full Review Rob S Oh yawn. What a shocker - shockingly bad and boring, that is. Had a little bit of "Hammer Horror" vibe going on but that was the only good thing about the movie. A few laugh-out-loud moments including Dracula as a giant praying mantis. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/10/23 Full Review Audience Member The 3D gives a really odd look to the colour. Flat, but shiny. Sex scene to start to set up that first attack… Cleavage, tits, goblets of blood, crap sfx. I have moments, but is this really Argento? Because if I hadn't seen the credits, I just would know - apart from the bullet bit. Even Rutger can't lift it. The grasshopper? The last step too far. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member It's obvious nobody liked this movie. And I can't blame them. But there's something that I noticed about this version of Dracula. It seems to resemble those old Hammer horror films starring Christopher Lee. Was this Argento's intention? Or maybe this was done with tongue planted firmly in cheek. Either way, it's time these old washed up film directors put themselves out to pasture! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review bill t A dracula movie that sort of goes all over the place, bringing us characters that we see only briefly before they're killed off, shoddy special effects, and yes, Rutger Hauer apparently there for the paycheck. I really can't decide which is worse. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
