Dracula 3D's NSFW Spanish trailer is heavy on the cheese

Like many of you I'm a huge fan of Dario Argento's previous works (up through STENDHAL SYNDROME) and have pledged to watch anything the man makes regardless of subject matter or appearance. However, after viewing this (NSFW) Spanish language trailer for DRACULA 3D, it is clear to me Mr. Argento is completely intent on testing his fans' loyalty.

I have a pretty high tolerance for cheese, especially from a visionary like Argento, but DRACULA 3D looks way too much like a Syfy channel original movie. The bad CGI and creature effects, the awkward looking sets, the sterile photography... DRACULA 3D'S trailer makes Argento's PHANTOM OF THE OPERA look like DEEP RED in comparison. There at least appears to be a copious amount of nudity in the movie (including some from Asia Argento, pictured below), so the guy hasn't totally lost his filmmaking perspective. Yet overall DRACULA 3D is looking pretty rough when compared to the stylists' previous works.

DRACULA 3D stars Rutger Hauer as Van Helsing, Thomas Kretschmann as Dracula, Marta Gastini as Mina and the aforementioned Asia Argento as Lucy. IFC recently acquired the film and announced plans to release it into theaters via its IFC Midnight label sometime in 2013. Until then, brace yourself for a vampire schlockfest below.

Extra Tidbit: I'm a bit of a GIALLO apologist. That film has a lot of cool ideas, but is hindered by bad casting and dull villain. Brody is great, though...

Does Dracula 3D look good enough to watch? Not really. However, does the film make good use of its 3D for sordid thrills? Sure, a person can tell that the film does. Does 3D go well with other cheesy film elements? Sure. Is the script a little clever for Drac picking a different area than just at the neck? Yes. Apparently, Dracula is also a knee-nibbler. The back of the knee is another erogenous. As long as we don't Drac sticking a foot in his mouth or Nosferatu slamming his nose into an anus,
