Dario Argento's Dracula

By DAVID WEINER

January 28, 2014

Legendary director Dario Argento puts his stamp on the classic vampire with this sexually charged, stylish retelling of the legendary myth. It's been 400 years since Count Dracula's (Thomas Kretschmann) beloved Countess Dolingen passed away, leaving the immortal bloodsucker forever abandoned. But when he discovers that local newlywed Mina Harker (Marta Gastini) bears a striking resemblance to the Countess, his furious yearning is reawakened as he believes Mina to be a reincarnation of his beloved. Asia Argento stars as Mina's best friend Lucy, while Rutger Hauer plays vampire hunter Abraham Van Helsing.
