Dracula 3D

Italian horror master Dario Argento doesn't adapt the Bram Stoker classic so much as strip it for gory set pieces, though not even those are realized with much enthusiasm. His imagery lacks the eroticism and suggestiveness one associates with vampire myths, and there's little narrative sense holding all this together. Argento has never been known as an actor's director, but the performances here are particularly wooden: Thomas Kretschmann, in the title role, may be the least charismatic Dracula ever, and Asia Argento (an exceedingly generous daughter, apparently) shows none of her usual liveliness. Still, there's something almost charming about the pervasive schlockiness, the low-budget 3-D effects calling to mind schoolroom dioramas and spook-house rides at county fairs. With Rutger Hauer.
