  • Summary: Based on one of the world's bestselling comic book series with over 60 million readers worldwide, "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" blends horror, humor and sophisticated storytelling set in the backstreets of New Orleans, a city with a long and storied history with the supernatural. The story revolves around Dylan Dog, the world's only private investigator of the undead with a business card that features his slogan, "investigator of the paranormal: no pulse, no problem." Along with his assistant Marcus, Dylan will go where the living dare not -- facing down friend and foe alike, until justice is done. (Omni/FSR)

    Some entertaining inventiveness, before nagging limitations finally drag it down.

    An unapologetic B-movie, Dylan Dog: Dead of Night tries mightily to cover its flaws with a peppering of humor -- much of it supplied courtesy of Dylan's zombie sidekick, played by Sam Huntington -- and an at-times fun "Buffy the Vampire Hunter" vibe.

    Dylan Dog isn't a terrible movie, just one that feels like a tepid mishmash of secondhand concepts, never developing a distinctive atmosphere or unique personality of its own.

    Brings vampires, werewolves, zombies, detective noir and spoofy comedy together for a murky genre gumbo with barely any flavor.

    Director Munroe (TMNT) is clearly a fan and attempted his best on an admittedly limited budget, but some things just don't translate that well. Throw this dog a bone? No need, he's already got a closetful.

    Dylan Dog feels like its ideas were stolen from western entertainment-a mash-up of sexy vampires, burly werewolves, and comical-gross zombies-which Hollywood then stole back from the Europeans, forgetting that other movies have explored that evil terrain thoroughly, exhaustively and better.

    Film noir is combined with horror to zero effect in Dylan Dog: Dead of Night.

    This movie was severely underrated. There were some parts that were maybe not like the comic and a little too cheesy, but for the most part the movie was good. The hollowness in Brandon Routh makes the film sparkle. Sam Huntington as the goofy sidekick Marcus was a glorious part of the film. Hopefully some day the series can be revived, due to lackluster marketing and release time. Expand

    This ain't Dylan Dog this is Dylan Dog **** Go watch Dellamorte Dellamore (AKA Cemetery Man) instead which is also based on Dylan Dog, it's now out on Blu Ray too in Europe - go to Amazon to check out this brilliant movie. Ignore this low budget TV movie, as I said it's Dog **** Expand

    I can see why film critics don't like it, but they're not the audience it was made for. If you're a fan of urban fantasy on the page or on the small screen then you'll love this. Think Kate Daniels + Harry Dresden with the production values of a good episode of Supernatural. Take it as a stand-alone though as it strays majorly from source. Expand

    I enjoyed it. It is definately more of a b movie! Sam huntington is very funny. It's like a slueth film with a monster angle. The budget wasnt very high and it shows but still not bad Expand

    its watchable but neither u r gonna like it nor feel for it . "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night " not the worst but its no even closer to be a good film . it was a bit of funny but that's it ! Story was so weak , Direction was low minded , Only the main 3 casts acting were good but others were so bad , Soundtrack wasn't memorable and special effects were C**p .

    This is one of the worst movies(and adaptations of a comic) i have ever watched.They completely destroyed both characters and the main lore of Dylan Dog.They made it into a quirky Hollywood action movie witch is completely wrong for this comic.Nothing is actually accurate and everything is different.You see,the movie totally misses the strange humor of the comic,its weird a mystical yet really unique and great story.The movie utterly misses anything from the comic.Stay away from this.For those who don't know,this is NOT Dylan Dog Expand
