It was announced today that 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.
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.
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.
