'Dracula - 3D' Blu-ray Bound

Posted Fri Jan 3, 2014 at 06:00 AM PST by

Dario Argento's bloodsucking thriller will unleash its fangs on Blu-ray in January, and you can pre-order it now.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI is preparing 'Dracula - 3D' for Blu-ray on January 28.

Horror maestro Dario Argento ('Suspiria') puts his unique stylistic spin on the classic supernatural tale with 'Dracula - 3D,' a visually sumptuous retelling of the legendary myth. It's been 400 years since Count Dracula's (Thomas Kretschmann) beloved Dolingen De Gratz passed away, leaving the immortal bloodsucker forever abandoned. But when he discovers that local newlywed Mina Harker (Marta Gastini) bears a striking resemblance to Dolingen, his furious yearning is reawakened as he believes Mina to be a reincarnation of his beloved. Luring her husband Jonathan away to his castle with the help of his minion (and Mina's best friend) Lucy (Asia Argento), Dracula embarks on a bloody quest to reunite with his long lost love and live forever with her in hellish immortality. Only the arrival of vampire expert Abraham Van Helsing (Rutger Hauer) can put an end to the fiend's unholy plan. Luridly violent and brimming with passionate eroticism, Dario Argento's 'Dracula - 3D' is an all-out assault on the senses from one of horror cinema's most celebrated auteurs.

Spec have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include a behind-the-scenes featurette and trailers.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
