Today we have an early sales trailer for "Dracula 3D," directed by Dario Argento (Giallo, Suspiria), and stars Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing and Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong) as Dracula. Check it out below. The film promises to be a faithful adaptation of Bram Stoker's novel. Shooting took place in Italy and Hungary earlier this year, despite several delays. Argento was also busy battling a lawsuit by Adrien Brody, who claimed that he was not paid for his work on "Giallo." "Dracula 3D" was shot entirely in stereoscopic 3D and is tentatively set to be released late 2012, but it has yet to be acquired for distribution.

A few people pointed me to the trailer for Dario Argento's Dracula 3D this morning, and when I finally got around to watching it I was overcome with that mixture of mirth and sadness that is specific to watching a director really tumble downhill. Dario Argento has made movies that I truly love (Suspiria, Cat O'Nine Tails, and others) but in his later years hasn't been able to deliver a picture that even counts as a pale shadow of his best work. Now he is in post-production on Dracula 3D, a film that seems to do exactly what the title implies, only with some of the most flat and lifeless filmmaking I've seen since the heyday of Full Moon Entertainment . The effects in this trailer -- a trailer which is meant to find distribution, not an audience -- are unfinished, and that's fine. I don't mind the fact that »

Suspiria. Opera. Profondo Rosso. The Bird With The Crystal Plumage. ...this shit. It's become increasingly sad to see how some of my horror idols have lost their touch completely. Wes Craven, for instance, seems determined to show that he never actually had any talent, and that his few great films were a fluke. But Dario Argento, msn, no one had a run like him. But since The Stendhal Syndrome in 1996 (with the exception of his great "Masters of Horror" episode Pelts) »

Italian maestro of the macabre Dario Argento took Rutger (Blade Runner) Hauer, daughter Asia (Land Of The Dead) Argento, and Thomas (King Kong) Kretschmann to Hungary earlier this year to lens Dracula 3-D, the director’s first outing since 2009′s problematic Giallo. The Suspiria creator has been touting Dracula 3-D as more Hammer than Coppola, and has chosen to set the entire film in Transylvania, promising a romantic and bloodthirsty Drac unlike anything audiences have seen before.
An early trailer has been released, featuring visual effects sequences labeled as being “in progress” along with plenty of footage from the film. Clearly a violent take on the legend, Dracula 3-D certainly has genre fans talking…
Take a look (Warning: trailer contains violent and adult images Nsfw)…
It appears that a long teaser trailer for Dracula 3D, which you can see below, gives us a taste of what we will see at theaters in 2012. It should be clearly identified as being of a non-official teaser trailer. It looks like a trailer to help sale the film in international markets or to promote the film. The film is directed by Dario Argento (Suspiria, Opera) and stars Rutger Hauer, (Hobo with a Shotgun) Thomas Kretschmann (Resident Evil: Apocalypse) and Asia Argento (Land of the Dead). »
Indie director turned studio comedy director David Gordon Green has been talking about doing a remake of Dario Argento’s cult horror classic Suspiria for a couple years now. Back in March of this year, he insinuated that he would be making the remake his next film after the release of The Sitter. Well, The Sitter is out now, and it’s time for Green to move on to his next project, so what’s the deal with Suspiria? The director recently told IFC, “I’ve turned in the script. We’re just looking at casting and locations and trying to figure out budget and if it works.” Fans of remakes all over the world probably just let out a cheer at the news that the script is finished, but what is that about figuring out budgets? Does it seem likely that an agreement on the price of this thing will be reached, or »

Once a director of indie films, David Gordon Green’s career took a surprising turn a few years back when he moved to mainstream comedic fare. And if that didn’t surprise people enough, the director has been planning a remake of the Dario Argento classic Suspiria for some time.
“No, that adds to it", he said. "That means there’s an audience for prestige in genre, and to me, that’s exciting. We’re really close to getting that movie made if I can get over a couple more »
The last time we spoke with David Gordon Green about his plans to remake Dario Argento's classic 1977 horror film "Suspiria," he was hoping to solidify casting on the film before the end of 2011 and start shooting shortly thereafter. With only a few weeks to go until the end of the year, IFC caught up with Green to get an update on the project.
"I've turned in the script," said Green during a recent interview promoting his new film "The Sitter" starring Jonah Hill. "We're just looking at casting and locations and trying to figure out budget and if it works."
Asked why he's had to adjust his expectations and push back the project's timeline, the "Pineapple Express" director attributed the delay to timing and the current less-is-more movie climate.
"I've been trying to make it for four years and trying to find the support entity to finance it. It's »

The possibility of a Suspiria (1977) remake has been upsetting gore geeks since 2008, but now it looks like it's finally in motion. Director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) recently shed a little light on his Suspiria project. During an interview for his latest film The Sitter, Green commented on how the success of Darren Aronofsky’s The Black Swan has helped his remake of Dario Argento’s artful horror flick. "No, that adds to it. That means there’s an audience for prestige in genre, and to me,...

Director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) has talked about producing a remake of Dario Argento's horror movie classic Suspiria for a while now. Green has primarily focused on comedies and has wanted to be more involved in the realm of horror. So far the only movie that has even been close to horror was the thriller he directed Undertow about a family that recedes to the woods of rural Georgia. His plan for Suspiria was to have Natalie Portman play the lead role as Suzy Bannion. Then Black Swan was released which also stared Portman in another horror ballet influenced film. Most would have thought that might have killed Green's plans for Suspiria instead he said in a interview: »
Exclusive: With his new gonzo babysitter movie "The Sitter" opening up this weekend, we got to sit down and talk with its director, the multitalented David Gordon Green, best known for raunchy studio comedy "Pineapple Express" and most beloved for bittersweet indie romance "All the Real Girls." During the conversation, we had to get the lowdown on a plethora of projects he's been linked to. So, read on for updates on "Suspiria," the recently announced time travel romance "Q," and, in typical David Gordon Green speak, a whole bunch of other shit (including how his comic book horror movie "Freaks of the Heartland" might be headed for animation). First and foremost on our mind was Green's proposed remake of Dario Argento's seminal horror masterpiece "Suspiria." We'd heard in the past that he had written it with his sound designer and was looking to cast unknowns but there hasn't been an update. »
David Gordon Green has been planning a remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria with Natalie Portman attachedto star. As you may know, both films involve ballet. That makes me wonder if Black Swan had hurt Suspiria's chances of going behind the camera.
Here is what he had to say when asked if Black Swan had thrown a wrench into his plans: "No, that adds to it. That means there’s an audience for prestige in genre, and to me, that’s exciting. We’re really close to getting that movie made if I can get over a couple more budgetary hurdles I think I can pull it off. My version doesn’t really have any similarities to “Black Swan,” but it proves to the marketplace that you can take a great risk and you can have something that has great artistic ambition, but also has incredible commercial appeal."

Hey, kids! It's time for your daily dosage of non-news, which is when all the major websites on the Internet pick up stories that contain no real news but are littered with buzz words that will serve to get themselves traffic! Hooray!
During an interview for his latest film, The Sitter, director David Gordon Green spoke a bit about how, if at all, the success of Black Swan has helped push along his remake of Dario Argento's Suspiria.
Green told Coming Soon, "No, that adds to it. That means there’s an audience for prestige in genre, and to me that’s exciting. We’re really close to getting that movie made; if I can get over a couple more budgetary hurdles, I think I can pull it off. My version doesn’t really have any similarities to Black Swan, but it proves to the marketplace that you can »

Natalie Portman's prominent role in Black Swan might have scuttled plans for her to appear in director David Gordon Green's remake of Dario Argento's colorful Suspiria since both films offer (to varying degrees) horrific takes on the world of ballet. One also had to wonder if that film in general had hurt Suspiria's chances of going behind the camera. Not so, apparently. When asked if Black Swan had thrown a wrench in his plans, Green told Coming Soon, "No, that adds to it. That means theres an audience for prestige in genre, and to me, thats exciting. Were really close to getting that movie made if I can get over a couple more budgetary hurdles I think I can pull it off. My version doesnt really have any similarities to Black Swan, but it proves to the marketplace that you can take a great risk and. »

While it's true that Ozzy Osbourne may well be the Prince of Darkness, there is only one undisputed King, a man who has rocked and shocked audiences all over the world with his outrageous, and outrageously entertaining live shows for over four decades, and who shows no sign of letting up any time soon. I speak, of course, of the one and only Mr Alice Cooper, a man who has forgotten more about horror movies than most people know to start with (with the possible exception of the encyclopaedic Kim Newman), and in whose company I was privileged to spend an hour and a half on the Friday before Halloween at the British Film Institute in London as he discussed his favourite Nightmare Movies with an audience of just 400 or so people.
As Alice took to the stage, along with Fright Fest founder Alan Jones, who was hosting the talk, »
