Dylan Dog: Dead Of Night is a fun comedy/horror whodunnit with a supernatural twist. It delivers plenty of movie fun too, just like those campy 80's monster flicks.
| Original Score: 3/10
the whole shebang plays out like a twisted Murder She Wrote episode
| Original Score: 3/5
Dylan Dog: Dead of Night's not too mysterious; don't take it too serious, and you'll have a fine time.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Fun performances from Routh and Huntington can't make up for an extremely convoluted and mostly soulless story -- even when there's a giant zombie running around.
| Original Score: 2/5
A pointless, very loose adaptation of the popular Italian comic that plays like a bad episode of Buffy.
| Original Score: 4/10
Dylan Dog works best when it has fun with P.I. conventions; when the monsters take over, it goes downhill.
| Original Score: 6/10
The movie wants to be a combination film noir and horror comedy, but the timing is all off and the performances are flat across the board.
| Original Score: 1/4
...a disappointingly lifeless adaptation...
| Original Score: 2/4
Entirely derivative and utterly wretched.
| Original Score: 0/4
Isn't awful, but it is awfully familiar,...coming across as something that might appear on the SciFi Network on a Saturday night.
| Original Score: C-
Everybody else will have a better time revisiting Monster Squad or falling asleep.
| Original Score: 0/5
There's one fight scene involving a rope and a pulley that briefly lifts the general torpor, but as soon as that's over, it's back to snoozeville.
| Original Score: 0.5/5
The film longs to be a hip skewering of noir and monster movies but instead is kneecapped by mediocre effects, indifferent performances and a generally dull design.
Even if the whole vampires vs. werewolves thing hadn't already been done to un-death by True Blood and the Twilight and Underworld franchises, Dylan Dog would still be a crushingly dull 107 minutes.
For having such an inspired start, the movie feels oddly uninspired.
Director Munroe is clearly a fan and attempted his best on an admittedly limited budget, but some things just don't translate that well.
The story is even staler (and the production cheesier) than the jokes ...
"Life is wasted on the mortals," says an elder vampire. Even more so, I'm afraid, on this movie.
It's not so much that Dylan Dog is bad -- certainly nowhere near as bad as is being claimed -- it's that it's so completely inconsequential.
