BD Review: 'Dylan Dog: Dead of Night' Mind-Numbingly Tepid

I started off as a rash hater but slowly turned as the clips gave me a glimmer of hope. Unfortunately, Freestyle Releasing’s Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is just as bad as we thought. Here’s a taste of Chris Eggertsen’s brutal review:

‘I hated it’, I whispered over to my colleague as the credits rolled on the mind-numbingly tepid ‘Dylan Dog: Dead of Night’ – except that it wasn’t true, and I knew it half a second after the words rolled off my tongue. The truth is, I’m not sure such a strong reaction would even be possible after watching a film as inconsequential as this tedious would-be franchise-starter. After all, how can you hate something that hardly even exists to begin with?

Interview: 'Dylan Dog: Dead of Night' Director Kevin Munroe

Based on the bestselling Italian comic book, Dylan Dog: Dead of Night is a horror/comedy releasing this Friday that stars Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) as the titular “nightmare investigator” who is thrown into action when a beautiful young woman hires him to track down the werewolf that killed her wealthy father.

After ten years of languishing in development hell, the project finally found a guiding force in director Kevin Munroe (TMNT), who took on the unique challenge of bringing the internationally-celebrated European character to life for American audiences. Relocating the setting to New Orleans, Dead of Night will attempt to overcome the negative publicity surrounding its delayed release (it was finished in 2009) and open up the franchise to U.S. genre fans.

B-D reporter Chris Eggertsen recently sat down with Munroe to get a better sense of the numerous hurdles he was forced to clear -disappearing budget, a looming rights expiration date, trouble securing a distributor – to finally bring the finished product to the big screen. Check out the full interview inside.

A Literal Body Shop for Zombies in New 'Dylan Dog' Clip

The more I see from Kevin Munroe’s Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, his live-action adaptation of the popular Italian comic starring Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Anita Briem, Taye Diggs, Kyle Russell Clements, Peter Stormare, and Kurt Angle, the more I want to see the film.

Last week’s clip was clever and fun, while the newest footage, courtesy of MTV, continues the light side of horror by taking us into a “body shop” that carries zombie replacement parts.

A Stinky (in a Good Way) Clip from 'Dylan Dog: Dead of Night'

I’ve been extremely skeptical of Kevin Munroe’s Dylan Dog: Dead of Night, his live-action adaptation of the popular Italian comic starring Brandon Routh, Sam Huntington, Anita Briem, Taye Diggs, Kyle Russell Clements, Peter Stormare, and Kurt Angle.

I thought most of the art, stills and even the trailer looked 1990′s hammy – and not even in a good way – but I’ll roll over a bit after seeing the first official clip. Inside we posted a scene where Routh, as the title character, takes his zombie friend Marcus (played by Huntington) to a grocery store for some supplied. Here, Marcus begins to learn that he’s now one of the undead. It’s pretty amusing stuff.

With his street smart, his gun and a set of paranormal weapons, Dylan attempts to restore order both above and below ground. The Italian teaser trailer was released today and features pretty much all text. It’s quite uninspiring. The longer this movie sits on the shelf, the more concerned I get.
