Dracula 3D

I try not to judge movies by the trailer alone. I've read a lot of critical comments about this trailer, but in its defense this is a film made by Dario Argento, not Hollywood. Dario Argento is an Italian director who built his reputation on low budget schlock Horror films in the 70's and 80's. Personally, I think the look of this film is entirely in keeping with that tradition. After all, must all trailers look like generic Hollywood blockbuster trailers? I hope not. There must be some room for low budget diversity too. Personally, I think the film looks different and interesting and if the native 3D is well done, I'll forgive any shortcomings due to budgetary constraints.
