“Living investigator. Undead clients. Zombie partner. No pulse? No problem.”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: ““Dylan Dog: Dead of Night” is a new horror/comedy film based on one of the world’s most popular comics (60 million copies worldwide). Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog, world famous private investigator specializing in affairs of the undead. His PI business card reads “No Pulse? No Problem.” Armed with an edgy wit and carrying an arsenal of silver and wood-tipped bullets, Dylan must track down a dangerous artifact before a war ensues between his werewolf, vampire and zombie clients living undercover in the monster infested backstreets of New Orleans.”

Movie Critics

“…a cluttered, uninspired hash of familiar genre ideas…”
—Dennis Harvey, Variety

“…brings vampires, werewolves, zombies, detective noir and spoofy comedy together for a murky genre gumbo with barely any flavor. … Simply put, fans of bloodsucking, claw-swiping, flesh-rotting entertainment have enough going on in pop culture without needing to waste their time with ‘Dylan Dog: Dead of Night’.”
—Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

“…Put a stake in this film noir monster movie, it’s done. … The terminally bland Routh brings little conviction or energy to his portrayal, failing to provide the sort of sly humor that might have made the proceedings more bearable. …”
—Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter

“…revolves around preternatural creatures, the undead and a demon. … God’s and Jesus’ names are misused over a dozen times (with God’s being combined with ‘d**n’ twice). … storyline is rather jumbled, feels tired…”
—Bob Hoose, Plugged In

“…constant series of glib, cartoonish payoffs. …a stream of numbing, repetitive exposition. …the dimensions of the characters-humans and monsters alike-are so cartoonish that there’s never any reason to care whether or not they live or die. …”
—Todd Gilchrist, Boxoffice Magazine

“…As the title character, Routh has to carry the movie with bravado and charm, appearing in most every scene, narrating in the style of a hundred film noir private eyes. And he just doesn’t have it. …” [1/4]
—Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

“…far too much cartoonish clowning…” [1½/5]
—Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle
