3-D imagery, flat story...
Superbly rendered, surreal and highly theatrical, Dracula 3D is an interesting mix of classic horror storytelling and contemporary excess of gore, nudity and eroticism; lesbian or otherwise. Despite its obvious flaws, it is nicely augmented by a score right out science-fiction from the 50's, by vividly textured, almost plasticized, Victorian sets, and by a charming brochette of players.
The rigor of the ancient language used vacillates and it hinders dialogue. Dracula 3-D feels like every other conservative Dracula movie but with sporadic chunks of soft core pornography and horrendous CG inserted for shock or scare purposes. If bad effects are your thing, there are plenty of shiny lycanthropic renditions and transformations, including weremantis and werefly action.
This movie only stands out by its photography. It sadly fails on most technical levels. It’s not scary and the script is thin. It's sexy, though, and it's refreshing in some ways, but it's a generally bad movie. The production value is significant but everything else feels experimental. It's a deception, as a whole, coming from the great mind of Dario Argento...
