Dylan Dog (Brandon Routh) is a world-famous private detective who specializes in the affairs of the walking dead.

Based on the popular graphic novel by Tiziano Sclavi.

    January 22, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    May 9, 2011
  • 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.

    May 6, 2011 | Rating: 0.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Director Munroe is clearly a fan and attempted his best on an admittedly limited budget, but some things just don't translate that well.

    May 6, 2011 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…
  • While he's fine playing bemused and beleaguered, Routh can't muster the edginess that Dylan is also meant to have. Diggs looks fabulous, but has his own problems with the dangerous stuff.

    May 2, 2011 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A horror comedy with a lame hero, ridiculous story, villains sans scare factor, bad jokes and poorly shot fight sequences? Unworthy of your time on every front.

Audience Reviews for Dylan Dog: Dead of Night

  • Sep 26, 2012
    Dylan Dog(Brandon Routh) is a private investigator who specializes in domestic cases in New Orleans, along with his assistant Marcus(Sam Huntington). However, he finds himself reluctantly drawn back into the world of the supernatural when he goes to the aid of Elizabeth(Anita Briem) when her father, an importer, is found brutally murdered in their Garden District home. Come to think of it, Gabriel(Peter Stormare) is none too happy to see Dylan either while for Vargas(Taye Diggs) it is business as usual as he sells vampire blood out of his club. "Dylan Dog: Dead of Night" starts badly and ends awkwardly with a denouement that does not really make a whole lot of sense. In between there is not a half bad movie that while not as good as an average episode of either "Grimm" or "Lost Girl," still manages a decent amount of world building. It is neat what it does with New Orleans but it was not necessary to set it there.(One question: What did the undead do during Katrina? Or am I better off not knowing?) And I especially liked the look into zombie culture, with the comic relief neatly offsetting some of the dourness. While Brandon Routh, whose bland charm mixes badly with the attempt to do hard boiled noir, is badly miscast, at least, Taye Diggs is having fun.

    Surprisingly not bad... campy 'who-done-it' with zombies, and werewolves, and monsters oh my!

    I really really really wish that Munroe's unproduced animated film Cat Tale was released instead of this. Crap that's absolutely trashy. I hated this movie. Cat Tale would definetely better than this. Even if its bad.

    Silly junk has ludicrous situations and mostly uninspired acting but Sam Huntington is enjoyably glib and charmingly goofy.
