Here here, on paper this has the potential to be the comeback he needs - though saying that, so was Mother of Tears!

I'll second that.

Also, who could he cast? I'm all for him approaching Max von Sydow for Van Helsing.

That would inherently make it the greatest Dracula film EVER.

I'm also a fan of Coppola's version of Stoker's novel despite Keanu Reeves -- I love that cut when the film goes from Lucy being beheaded to Van Helsing serving up a bloody steak!

I hate 3-D with a passion and think that this could be worse than Mother of Tears and Phantom of the Opera combined. It's actually quite sad when you think what's happened to Argento's career of late as we used to think about how great his next film would be but now it's a case of damage limitation and wondering how bad it could be.

I think Dracula is all wrong for Argento as his films and more about the visuals than the narrative and this story is all about the different forms of storytelling and how each character describes what's happening. It's too wordy for Argento who, as has been said, would be the perfect guy to direct a zombie movie.

I still think Mother Of Tears is great! Certainly Phantom Of The Opera was cack, and Giallo was below par (due to Adrien Brody mostly), but I just don't get what people have against Mother Of Tears!

My only problem with Mother of Tears is as it pales in comparison to Suspiria and Inferno. It's not Dario Argento at his best and, if it was directed by anyone else, it really wouldn't be considered as anything better than an average horror film.

It's interesting enough and directed with all the visual flair you'd expect from an Argento picture, but it doesn't hold a candle to the first two instalments in the trilogy.

Back in the early 80s people said the same thing about Inferno in relation to Suspiria...I think I'll wait a few years then see what people think!

Good point. I'll give it until 2020 and, if it is then recognised as a horror masterpiece, I'll admit I was wrong!

In the meantime, it probably deserves another watch as part of a "Three Mothers" triple bill.
