First images from Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D online

See Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing

dracula 3d

A massive selection of official images from Dario Argento’s Dracula 3D has been loaded online.

An update of the classic Bram Stoker tale, this new Dracula represents horror master Argento’s first swing at making a movie in 3D.

Previously, the maestro has stuck to more traditional (even old-fashioned) types of horror, most famously with the blood-soaked likes of Suspiria and Deep Red.

In Dracula 3D, Rutger Hauer takes on the iconic role of Van Helsing, while Argento’s daughter Asia plays Drac victim Lucy.

The critics haven’t been kind  to Argento’s more recent films, so it’ll be interesting to see how he fares doing something a little bit different.

Check out a selection of the new images below, and head over to the film's official website for the full set…

Dracula 3D opens in 2012.

Bloody good? Or bloody awful? What do you think of Argento's decision to leap into 3D? Talk to us below...

      'Giallo' was a bad film, would be nice to see Argento pull this one off. I cant really judge a film based on a handful of pictures, but there does seem to be a 'Hammeresque' quality to the images, good sign in my opinion.

      I'll watch anything that looks to be a legitimately creepy vampire movie, and as a big fan of Suspiria, I'll definitely put this on my list of things I'm excited for. However, since I live in a stupid cowboy town, I'll have to wait for the DVD. Seriously, I don't get to see anything other than the biggest Hollywood movies in theaters. Boo on that.

      As a massive Argento fan I feel quite cautious about this one. I am usually excited to see him make a new film but his recent offerings have not been very rewarding experiences. 'Mother of Tears' and 'Giallo' in particular were extremely poor. Even worse still these shots remind me heavily of 'Phantom of the Opera' which is easily his worst outing as a director. I sincerely hope I am wrong at that this film proves to be a step closer to a return to form for one of Horror cinema's true greats.
