Of course, a workprint trailer is not the final product.

But I guess that a proper trailer and the final movie will contain even more CGI - so I'm definitely not in high spirits.

Better than Vampire's Kiss ...?
Vampire's Kiss wasn't intentional, but it is a far superior film, that being said I genuinely love Buffy the movie.

Both The Dark Side and Fangoria say the 3D work is excellent, not only in things coming out of the screen but the sheer depth of the production.

The Dark Side has been less than complimentary about Dario's more recent offerings if people think they are biased.

I'm judging the trailer's tone, not the film.

I know it's absolutely pointless to judge a movie by it's trailer, even more so a workprint, but come on, everyone's gotta have an inward smirk at a giant praying mantis

I'm not criticising the quality of the 3D effects - I simply don't think that they're necessary! But that's just my personal opinion, and I definitely understand that there are quite a lot of people who love gimmicks like 3D and plenty of CGI.

I was hoping for a Hammer-style remake of Dracula, with some of Argento's trademarks like interesting colours, and harsh and detailed murder sets - but I guess this movie is not aimed at such an audience.

I will check it out, that's for sure - but I fear that I will be disappointed.

Don't be sarcastic now, everyone remembers it from the novel.

I thought the sets and locations looked great. I also really liked the giant praying mantis!

It's the merest of tasters. And I found it interesting.

I haven't even watched the trailer yet and I expect it will be shii-iite.

I reckon that trailer footage is beyond tweaking into quality material... unless there is a way of tweaking the camera angles / lighting / set design / performances in post...?
