Argento's Dracula 3D Trailer is Viral Gold

File this one under 'So Bad, It's Good', or maybe 'So Bad, It's Shit'. Just watch:

That there is a leaked trailer (complete with unfinished effects) for Dario 'Suspiria' Argento's upcoming 3D flick Dracula 3D. When I first saw this, I was convinced it was a piss take, but Rutger Hauer and Asia Argento are on display, so I am nothing but confused. What can I tell you about the project? It isn't a direct adaption, but 'borrows' elements from Stoker's novel. It was filmed in Budapest. It doesn't seem to have a distributor. And the trailer is viral gold.

I can't imagine this working as a full length film. Seems to me this trailer says it all. I'm guessing it's supposed to be a send up, but then again, maybe it's just a poor cheapy. Who knows? (If you do, you HAVE to tell me!).

Unless this is all some sort of joke and I've been left out of the loop!
