I will just point out that I hate when they include "3D" in the actual title of the movie. Lame.

I agree, and most of the time it just makes the movie gimmicky. Boy, i loved Avatar in 3D, but this 3D trend that it started makes me almost wish Avatar had never been done in 3D, it looks awesome at home in 2D on bluray anyway.

never take life seriously

The "trend" as you refer to it, started long before AVATAR hit theaters.

Yes, it started, but it exploded after Avatar.

Jaws 3D, Friday the 13th 3D, 3D glasses at 7-11 back when they were run by tweakers that spoke English... it all came and went pretty quick. I'll probably see it in 2D but I agree and am sick of the cheapness that "3D" adds to every title. I don't object to seeing a movie in 3D here and there and the best 2D displays are 3D as well so kinda stuck there but the whole thing is getting pretty corny.

Wow this looks silly! Not what I expected at all. I've seen better sets on some of those SYFY movies.

Sadly, Argento isn't what he once was. I have to admit to not even seeing his last few efforts, which at one time would have been unthinkable to me. Just been disappointed too many times. Now, seeing something with the genius of Susperia in 3D would have me salivating, but I have to admit I can't see it happening.

Doesn't look like much of that went into promotional material. YIKES!

Argento has been a has-been for decades now and this is so sad, it's ludicrous. How he gets ANY money to make films now is beyond me.

I might have to dig out the 3D glasses for this mess!

Argento's Dracula will be released on October 4th, both in select theaters and on cable and digital VOD, under the IFC Midnight banner. Look for it in 3D on DirecTV, AT&T, Verizon, Comcast, CableVision and Time Warner cable and satellite platforms as well as in theaters.

Argento's entries for the Master's of Horror were quite good, and those aren't that old. I don't get why he can't make a movie of that quality?
