AGENTO’S DRACULA Release Details Emerge

Today’s batch of email brought some big news for Dario Argento fans everywhere. The Blu-ray of his take on DRACULA is coming soon and all the details on the release are in, you ready?

The press release reveals:

Horror maestro Dario Argento puts his unique stylistic spin on the classic supernatural tale in DRACULA, a sexually charged, visually sumptuous retelling of the legendary myth. The film arrives on DVD and 3D Blu-ray on January 28, 2014, via IFC Midnight with SRPs, respectively, of $24.98 and $29.98.

It’s been 400 years since Count Dracula’s (Thomas Kretschmann, Wanted, Valkyrie) beloved Countess Dolingen passed away, leaving the immortal bloodsucker forever abandoned. But when he discovers that local newlywed Mina Harker (Marta Gastini, The Rite) bears a striking resemblance to the Countess, his furious yearning is reawakened as he believes Mina to be a reincarnation of his beloved.

Luring her husband Jonathan away to his castle with the help of his minion (and Mina’s best friend) Lucy (Asia Argento, xXx, Boarding Gate), Dracula embarks on a bloody quest to reunite with his long-lost love and live forever with her in hellish immortality. Only the arrival of vampire expert Abraham Van Helsing (Rutger Hauer, Blade Runner, Hobo With a Shotgun) can put an end to the fiend’s unholy plan.

Luridly violent and brimming with passionate eroticism, Dario Argento’s DRACULA is an all-out assault on the senses from one of horror cinema’s most celebrated auteurs. It stands in grand company with such Argento classics as The Girl With the Crystal Plumage, Tenebre, Deep Red and The Cat o’ Nine Tails.

The Los Angeles Times’ Mark Olsen wrote, “Argento still brings enough moments of kinky madness … to indicate there may yet be greatness lurking within him.”

The IFC Midnight theatrical release comes to DVD and a special Blu-ray, containing both the 2D and 3D versions of the film on a single disc.
