[News Bites] Argento’s ‘Dracula 3D’ Actually Coming Out! ‘Haunt’ Casts Gilbertson! IFC Plays ‘Would You Rather’!


Dario Argento’s terrible looking (trailer inside!) Dracula 3D has been picked up by IFC. Per Fangoria, “IFC Films has snagged the rights and will release it under the IFC Midnight label in 2013.” The film stars Thomas Kretschmann, Marta Gastini, Rutger Hauer, Asia Argento, Miguel Angel Silvestre and Miriam Giovanelli.

IFC has also picked up the rights in North America, Latin America, UK, France and Germany for David Guy Levy’s Would You Rather. Brittany Snow (Prom Night), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator) and Sasha Grey all star. In the film, “In the wake of her parent’s death, Iris (Snow) struggles to make ends meet while caring for her terminally ill younger brother. Shepard Lambrick (Combs), a seemingly philanthropic aristocrat, expresses an interest in helping them. When he invites her to an exclusive dinner party, she accepts. Also attending the dinner party are seven more desperate individuals. They soon find themselves trapped in Lambrick’s mansion and forced to play a sadistic game of Would You Rather, where the winner will be awarded untold amounts of money. As the game progresses, the dilemmas Iris and the other players face grow increasingly deadly.

Harrison Gilbertson (Virginia, “Conspiracy 365”) has been cast in Haunt, an original horror film that Mac Carter will direct from a script by Andrew Barrer, says Deadline.

In the film, “A family that moves into a new home with a dark past. When their son becomes involved with a beautiful girl next door, and together they begin to explore their sexual awakening, they unwittingly invoke an alternative dimension of the house.” Production starts in November.

    i will always pay for and suport any argento movie. even his newer stuff that some seem to hate on. argento at his worst is still better than many horror directors today at their ‘best’

    Ugh, At least if you can’t tell a story please make your movie visually interesting Dario. This trailer visually looks boring.

    It sucks so much to say it, but…well, Argento kind of sucks these days. I fell in love with his movies after seeing Opera for the first time many years ago, and loved most of his films from the 70’s and 80’s, but things like this, Mother of Tears, Phantom of the Opera (seriously, Opera was already an incredible homage, why make a shitty version of that?), Stendhal Syndrome (one of a few creepy examples of him having nude scenes involving his daughter in his movies, only weirder because she also gets raped in this one), Giallo…he just doesn’t make anything good anymore.
